    I don't doubt it.



    It's totally underrated.

    I finished Twilight. Its a bit addictive admittedly.


    I like Alice more than Edward.


    And yes it is a bit overrated in my opinion.
    I give it a 7.75/10.

    I'm currently reading "Fragile Things" by Neil Gaiman.
    Just finished "I Am Legend" (along with the accompanying short stories by Matheson in my copy). Better than the movie, IMO, I give it a 8.5/10 mostly because it is a bit short. The short stories are okay 7/10.
    Also, I finished reading "American Gods" by Gaiman... just .... brilliant. 11/10
    "Burning In Water, Drowning in Flame" by Bukowski. 9.5/10, excellent, I shall have to check out more of his poetry and definitly pick up some of his short stories as I've heard they're even better.
    Also, the, erm Library of America's I think it was, compendium of Lovecraft stories. 10/10.

    I've been doing a lot of reading lately *blushes*

    I finally finished the atrocity that was Eragon. What an awful book, seriously.

    I've heard Eldest is much better, so when I get my hands on it, I'll read it. But Eragon took all my interest out of the series, honestly.

    I'm starting on The Alchemyst right now.

    Could someone recomend a book for me to read? A horror or mystery or something. Along the lines of IT or better?

    Next book on my list is Abarat by Clive Barker. Has anyone read it? This one is for young adults, but its a fantasy, and it looked interesting.

    I read a few of his other books, The Great and Secret Show, and its sequel Everville. They were both really good.

    Stephen Clarke's Talk to the snail: 10 commandments for understanding the French.

    All of this is ridiculously funny because it's so recognisable when you're a foreigner in France. xD

    Michael Scott's The Alchemyst is very weird. It's like watching I, Robot in that there seem to be random product endorsements everywhere. It fits with the story, though, since it's supposed to be contemporary. It's just weird that he's got to give a brand name to everything the characters are using, like their iPods and stuff. It's a good book so far, very engaging.

    The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel was absolutely fucking brilliant, and I'm going to pick up the next book, The Magician, this weekend. Absolutely amazing.
