    Just finished it today, quite a nice book. Mazzucchelli's drawing tells the story beautifully.

        I got it for Xmas as well. Opened it up yesterday.
        Starts off fairly quickly. I'm sure I'll enjoy it though 'cause I've read alot of King's work before

        • In the past 5 weeks I've had to read The Woman Warrior, No-No Boy, Pamela, Shamela, Moll Flanders, City of Glass, and a bunch of literary essays on different criticisms...Blah.

          Anyways, now in my Sci-Fi Lit. class we are reading The Hobbit. Beorn and Elyas from Robert Jordan's The Eye of the World in his Wheel of Time series are eerily similar. Obviously Beorn resembles a black bear and Elyas wolves, but they seem alike in a lot of ways.

          No real point here, just an observation. One reason I love Jordan's work is because how alike Tolkien he is. He draws a lot of comparison from critics, so I guess it makes sense.

                  Makes up the stuff about the stuff the people made stuff up in the first place.
                  But its not so much about the science as the way it is presented and misleading people into a "state of fear"

                    "The Rocket" is one of my favorite Bradbury short stories.

                      Everything in that book is brilliant, my favorite sci-fi book.

                      • I read "Fahrenhite 451" when I was in the 6th grade. I have enjoyed Ray Bradbury's work ever since.

                          • The Lincoln Lawyer, by Michael Connelly. Its looking like a damn good book, if you like Mystery.

                            • I just read the The City of Glass from this trilogy by Paul Auster today in about 3 hours. It's 200 pages, quick, and a fascinating book. We had to read it for an 381 English class discussing theory and criticism. It's a fun novel to breakdown.

                              • Paul Auster is kind of not bad. I loved Oracle Night but Travels in the Scriptorium was a bit meh.
