Trying to juggle Les Miserables, I Shall Overcome (diaries of a German Jew between 1933 and 1945) and Hitchen's The Portable Atheist... Enjoying them all but will take me a while to get through them I think.

I haven't read The Remains of the Day but I've read Never Let me Go and tbh it wasn't all that great..
Remains of the Day is a lot better in my opinion. I didn't like Never Let Me Go - I thought the concept was quite cliched and obvious and I didn't find the characters that interesting - but RotD was much more subtle and quite moving. There's a good Merchant Ivory production of it too with Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson.

Just finished Never Let me Go - same author, didn't expect it to be my kind of thing but really enjoyed it!
Oo, haven't read it yet so don't know if it would make a good film, but they are making Never Let Me Go into a film starring Kiera Knightly. If it's the book I'm thinking of, with the

Right now I'm reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, nearly finished it, like it enough to get the other two in the trilogy now. Must see the film now that is out based on the book.

The Dreaming Void - Peter F. Hamilton

I received a free copy of this, usually being a bit dismissive of contemporary sci-fi. It's good, for about half of it, while the remainder is distressingly awful.

Metamorphosis*, Kafka* - (sorry) but its/his epicness demands such correction.

Just finished The Time Traveller's Wife, because I thought the film looked good but knew it wouldn't compare to the novel. I thought it was a really good book with an interesting concept that I haven't seen before, and I loved the two main characters. I have to admit the end had me bawling too :p: On public transport no less!

Finished Catch-22 yesterday :love:
I'm back to my between-book limbo, so I'm reading some more Guy de Maupassant. I'll most likely read A Vindication of the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft next.

Cry? Really?

There's no doubt it's filled with emotions, but why did it make you cry?

Yep. :o:

To sum it up in one sentence, the whole betrayal, denial, deaths.

The way each generation was. Most of it is quite heart-breaking. :sad:
