Old Man and The Sea, by Hemingway.
Short, powerful, salty.

As I'm completely taken of late with the Eberron setting, I'm chewing through novels faster than I can find them. Currently I'm on Keith Baker's "Son of Khyber". So far his novels are the best in the Eberron franchise, in my opinion. Good reads in a great setting.

Y'know how comicbooks are percieved by old people to be made for children, when that is often not the case?
This is the biggest 'not the case'. Faces ripped off... then nailed back on upside down. Things done to chickens that should be kept between men and women, angels casually decapitated... only scratching the surface.

So yea, I recommend it.

Then, finished V for Vendetta.
Holy ****, again.
The movie presented things as much less degraded... the comic book drags all of humanity into the gutter, then blows it all to pieces.

Deadpool arrives sometime next week... that should be more peppy.
I could point you to some other powerfully good comic books that are definitely not rated "E for Everyone"

Not sure if it's age or saltiness that makes "Old Man" more enjoyable.

I think the bolded part is why you didn't enjoy Hemingway your first time around. You could try that book again.

Seconded. There are also a few really nicely done related novellas by him, and another couple of epic length novels in the same world by his friend Ian Esslemont (sp?). I highly recommend all of them.

Ok, I went and checked it out last night, I'm through Chapter 9.

Finds it interesting that the Main Characters Last name is Rahl.

I wonder if there is some sort of tie in to the Sword of Truth Series, except by name only.

Yay, someone else that likes Preacher! I read that when it first came out, I loved it. I think I have issues 16-49. Ennis does a good job of creating memorable, although occassionally ridiculous, characters.

Never read Catcher in the Rye even when I was being graded on it. Strangely enough, I passed that class. I couldn't quite get into it but I felt as though I was living it at the time. Maybe I will give it a chance this time. And possibly "The Stranger" as well.

First, I must finish the War of the Spider Queen series. Just read Insurrection in a day but really what else can one do when literally stuck in bed with a bad back.

I finished up reading Scott Lynch's "Lies of Locke Lamorra" last night after it was recommended to me a few times. It was a very good read. Moving on to the next Dresden Files book for me, "Small Favor".
