Future Book Club Nominees!

This forum caters to our literary tastes.

Postby Cpt Kirks 2pay on Fri Dec 01, 2006 11:09 pm

Hmm, look guys, I've never really sat down and read a book all the way through. It ain't really down to not liking reading (I don't much) but that if I got time to read a book or a script, then I got time to write one, or edit my film, etc. BUT I have been thinking about reading stuff, since I came here, and I have been thinking about picking up a copy of Stephen King's/Peter Straub novel, The Talisman, about a boy who goes into a mysterious fantastical but dark and evil world, in order to find a cure for his dying mother.

Anyone wanna gimme some encouragement on this idea?

EDIT. Sheesh! Google searched and found IMDb already have this listed to be filmed. HOLY SHEET! Can't believe we nearly came to certain death with Will Smith ready to star in it. Michael J Fox, I can handle, considering how easy it is to get someone you don't want to be in films you wanna see. Isn't this the film that Ed Zwick was/is gonna direct?

novel...The Road by Cormac McCarthy, excellent philosophical read...want to be the guy in the movie

graphic novel...The Sandman The Doll's House...or any Sandman graphic novel for that matter.


coffe table book....Gorillaz, Rise of the Ogre...


those would be my picks (and yes Neal Stephenson is God, but I have just finished reading System of the World and need a bit of a break).

Oh yeah, my second nominee for novel, it being December and all is...Lamb by Cristopher Moore...hilarious book about someone who's birthday is celebrated by rabid consumerism and lying to children.

I think that's Quint's favorite Stephen King novel actually, so if you're into his stuff and you trust Quint's opinion then you should definitely give it a look. I don't know anything about it myself.

Did you end up reading life of Pi by Yann Martel?

That book is excellent, if only for the last chapter...

I'd vote for The Road.

A Spot of Bother by Mark Hadden

I love The Tailsman and would definately read it again.

I second also Lamb by Christopher Moore (I think I own the book, just have never read it).

Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn (new, but it looks creepy)

It might be nice to go back and read Wm. Gibson's NEUROMANCER again to see how it holds up. Or perhaps, PATTERN RECOGNITION, one of his newer works.

Or maybe since everyone is so jacked about the movie, Alan Moore's WATCHMEN compilation.

I HOPE you're not talking about the manga. It'd cost me a month's wage to pick up all of those bad muthafuddas.

I suggest The Wasteland by T.S. Eliot. It's not technically a book, but in my opinion it's the best poem ever written. You can view it online here.

God no. It took me 2 year to get all of those (tough i was collecting them as they came out) Im talking about the small priced book thats only about 600 pgs. Its a good read too.

Gibson's Spook Country is also coming out in August. As is the final Dune book, so maybe we could do Dune.

Let's get a few more suggestsions and I'll add a poll.

(It's been too long since we've had a book of the month.)

3rd or 4th time should be enough to finally "get" it.

but I doubt it.

Ah, yes. It is an intimidating tome, sitting on my shelf and sending intimidation rays at me whenever I chicken out and read something else. One of these days, I will have to pick it up and conquer it.

C'mon! Gimme an excuse!

well, as you 'prolly know, it's incredibly dense (either that, or I am...'prolly a little of both), filled with seemingly extraneous passages that'll roll your eyes back into your sockets...

but man oh man, there are certain passages that are the most dazzling brilliant musings I've ever come across.

it's not really all that difficult to follow, you've just got to steel yourself for the long-winded, seemingly unnecessary flights of authorial wankery.

if you're a Pynchon virgin, I'd recommend either V. (where I nicked my screen name), THE CRYING OF LOT 49, or VINELAND. They're all shorter in lenght (LOT 49 is a little over novella length), not quite as dense with the narrative chicanery, and will definitely give you the Pynchon vibe, as it were...

Finnegans Wake!!!

It has to be the most intimidating book in the English (?) language. I once got four pages into it, and that is an achievement I'm proud of!

It still sits on my shelf, sending ultraviolet intimidation rays at me ...

Has anyone checked out "Against The Day" yet? It's thick enough to kill a cow with (sorry Moo). I listen to a lot of audio books during my commute, and thought I might give that one a shot, but then I realized that the unabridged version is 42 discs... 54 hours long!!!!

Thanks for the Pynchon knowledge KCBC. I am a Pynchon virgin so help wading into that particular mine field is appreciated! :)

EXCITED!!!

c'mon, you've GOT to review that. The only acceptable excuse would be either Bascombe or Mori gets to it first.

Crikey man, even if you don't dig it, I'd still love to read your reasons.

Adam Balm wrote:Anyway, if we pick GR, how many of us do you think will actually get through it in a month, or assuming we get through it---how many of us will retain it?


let's be clear here, I'm not endorsing GR for book of the month or anything. People loathe me enough as it is, I don't need to give 'em any more reasons.

IF it was selected...hmmm...I can't really say. I loved it, and when I get all obsessive about a book I tend to drop everything else (and I mean everything. Grooming, sleeping, eating (mayhaps I should read more!), work...fucking building could be on fire and I'd tell the tenants to fuck off!).

In terms of retention, well, that'll rest with the reader. The only way my befuddled, THC addled mind retains info is by highlighting, then writing down select passages, and then re-reading them over and over and over.

and even then, my sieve like brain will still fail me...

:(

Valid point. Perhaps we could mark it as a future book of the month now? Pick something more manageable for this month, then slot GR for September... give us a little more time with it?

Assuming anyone's at all interested of course...
