    Just made a start on Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut. Liking it so far, very similar to other books I've read by him.

    I'm liking it, read half of it on the bus today. Quite interesting, so far.
    How do you read on the bus? It makes me dizzy. Same with the car. It's the whole moving effect.

    I forget the title! Author: Mercedes Lackey. A combination of fantasy and history. It's quite long. Has been dragging on for a good few days.

    Really? Yeh I've seen it. Good for a film but not as good as the book. They miss out the best bits in it I think!

    It's no suprise that the books are usually better than the movies. More room for detail there. And yeah, unfortunately, the half blood prince does miss some essentials.

    Have you read The Time Traveller's Wife? The movie looks promising.

    Awesome. I haven't read it yet but it's on my 'to read' list. Got a while to go as I've decided to read Harry Potter 1-7! Lol.

    I've started to read books first and then consider the film adaptation now to prevent confusion! Or just read the book instead! I haven't seen Twilight or Atonement!

    hi all,

    i've just finished reading Gregory Maguire's Wicked: the life and times of the wicked witch of the west. I will never be able to watch The wizard of Oz in the same way again: such a rich and vibrant history and political system, it has completely turned the Oz story on its head, and was very challenging in places in terms of making teh reader question their own sense of what constitutes "evil". anyone else read it?
    I finished that last week. It was pretty good.

    Have you seen the musical? I saw it first, which was probably the wrong way to do it. The book and the musical are really different, so kept wondering when so and so aws going to happen :P

    Anyone read 'Son of a witch'? Not sure wheter to read it soon.



    I'm currently reading 'Surely you're joking Mr. Feynman!'

    The buses round here go at about 2mph, no risk of dizzyness.
