Hey, guys, i'm really ashamed...here you all read very nice and interesting books..while I read many books that some of you may consider superficial ...
Well, in have recently discovered a British author, Nick Hornby…he is very funny, but beside his humor, he really describes human nature. his books are very optimistic too and they always make me feel happy …
And of course I like the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice..Lestat is one of my favorite characters of all times... ;)
I also like Dostojevski , Kafka, Mircea Eliade, but lately I wasn't in the right mood for them...
Oh, and I love SF...especialy Asimov - the Foundation Books...they are great...I couldn't stop reading them...
And I must not forget Isabel Allende - a have just finished Daughter of fortune - a great book..and I intend to read more of her books.

I love reading books of Kafka, Anne Rice of cause and Oskar Wilde and I really like books of Michael Ende, especially "Die unendliche Geschichte" and I used to read Stephen King for a couple of years. Sometimes I read mangas and the last book I read was "Gothic 3". I read biographies of Marilyn Manson, Klaus Kinski and Nurejew. But I don´t have a favourite author.

Kafka
« Reply #64 on: August 31, 2006, 18:28:04 »
I once visited the house in Prague where Kafka had lived, so small, and I went to the graveyard where he once was buried, with little stones as tokens of love on the graves. It made me think of Der Golem by Meyrink. And when I first died (but was reanimated) six years ago I began to wonder (and wander) around...
Somebody here wrote The Idiot was her favorite book...
I´m thinking...
Myschkin and Aglaja...
Yes...


I´m reading Mannekino by Sybren Polet.

@ Marcus Cornelius Fronto: It's pretty obvious now... You were lucky to defeat or at least to postpone death.
Why, oh why, did I have to ask?  :roll:

I got the movies on tape from TV and Momo,too. But to buy them on DVD would be a great idea. Maybe I buy them.

I've finally finished that novel by Saramago... I tend to be such a slow reader when it comes to this writer, just because almost every page makes me stop and think or even copy some quotes.
Now, I guess I need smth "lighter": Mario Vargas Llosa - Letters to a Young Novelist... ;)

reading Totentanz
« Reply #70 on: September 12, 2006, 19:53:02 »
I´m now reading Totentanz by Strindberg
My up to now (all time?) favorite is a book by the 19th century Russian writer Gogol: "Death Souls".
If this all sounds too gloomy, the book by Gogol is glimmering with humour!
Totentanz is less humouristic, but what A PLAY!

Llosa's Letters to a Young Writer is somehow disappointing. :(
I mean, after you've read Umberto Eco's Opera aperta you can hardly find anything interesting or new in Llosa's book. He should stick to writing novels and leave the theory for others.  :P
