I've seen here and there blogs about who is reading what or people, incl. myself, asking someone to recommend books in a given genre. Looked around but there is no real books recommendation thread and I'm guessing most of us have titles to offer.
This is my personal favourite. Its a mind blowing book, althought some might consider it somewhat shallow, which i think is done on purpose. Biegbeder has a very specific style which insults the reader and yet that itself makes you go through his books.I d recomment pretty much everything written from him. He does have 4-5 books more.
A boy follows his dream - on short. Still must read. Action begins slightly before WW 1
Well. Long awaited movie s coming out so you obviously want to read this.
This is a very dark book. Ayn Rand desribes the situation in Russia very realistically and makes you think all around about any given form of government
Yes, yes.Hated by many, praised by even more - this biography will influence you no matter what.
Last but not least.
If you have only seen the movie, dont react prematurely, it was terribad and if you havent read the book id be amazed if you understand 1/2 of the ideas in it. I was very skeptical about reading this at first. But Stephen King summed it up well "A violent, jarring, speed-rap novel that generates nearly constant suspense. . . I couldn't stop reading."
Will continue later. But this is most of what made a good impression on me last couple of weeks
