I really liked it. It's a continuation of Angela's Ashes and I felt he left us hanging at the end of Angela's Ashes. I wanted to know what happened when he came back to New York, his life, etc.
'Tis is just the book I wanted him to write.

Oh if you can get your hands on the Adrian Mole diaries by sue Townsend Falling Star i suggest you read them- they are hilarious. Love my funny books!

I know that reading *can* be fun!

Gonna look for the book.

You aren't that interested in 'boring' books I know , but I went through my book shelf yesterday and there are a lot of Salman Rushdie books in it. Maybe they aren't *that* boring. hehe

If you haven't read The Count of Monte Cristo, you must. Those other books can wait. In fact, don't read any other books. Just keep re-reading this one. Actually, Microsoft is testing their book-you-are-reading-tracking software, so if you read the book 10 times and then put it in a shoe box and mail it to one of your friends, Bill Gates will send you $18 million.

Just kidding. But read the book.

Those are excellent reads!!! I loved all 3 of these books...I am thinking of reading "The Beach"..seems like a very summer-y book.

I just finished a french book on modern Japanese society and I'm trying to finish "Fast Food nation"...

I'm reading so many books at the same time..Mostly History of Art and general history books...

I have started reading a book called "The girl with the pearl earring", which is inspired by the painting of Vermeer.
