What are you currently reading? Tyrannosaur Canyon by Douglas Preston – I only managed to read about a half of a page while waiting for my daughter’s bus before my fingers were too frozen to keep holding the book . . . so I don’t have any comments yet.
What did you recently finish reading? I had planned on reading Hocus Pocus by Kurt Vonnegut, but I just couldn’t get into it. I didn’t want to force the read, especially since Vonnegut is one of my favorites, so I put it aside. I’ll try to revisit it sometime soon.
I’ve been enjoying finishing/starting a new book every week, so when I finally gave up on Hocus Pocus on Monday night, I wanted to pick something I could still finish before posting my WWW. I read The Stranger by Albert Camus in high school and I loved it. It was a quick read then, so figured I’d pick it up and see if I had the same reactions 15 years later.
It feels weird to say I enjoyed the book because I don’t think it’s the kind of book to really enjoy. It definitely has an effect though. I just finished it this afternoon and I’m not sure I have the right words to express my thoughts yet.
I remembered very little of the story before I reread it, but my reaction was very much the same. The book makes me uncomfortable in a meaningful kind of way . . . if that makes any sense. I’ll try to write a short review on Goodreads later in the week.
What do you think you’ll read next? I’m not sure. The books I want to read most right now are ones I don’t currently own. I’m hoping to hit the bookstore in a week or two, but that doesn’t help me right now! Possibly Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin . . . though that one will probably take me a while. I also think it’s pretty shameful that as a sci-fi geek, I have never read anything by H.G. Wells. I’ve had The Time Machine, The Invisible Man, War of the Worlds, and The Island of Dr. Moreau on my bookshelf for a couple of years now. Maybe one of those will be next.
