Default What book have you finished recently?

Well, I searched the forums for a thread like this, but surprisingly there was none (unless I missed something).


What book have you finished reading recently? If you want, recommend it and describe it (author/genre/summary). :


Well, I just finished reading The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck. It's a classic. Historical fiction...I think. Sorry, I'm not very good with determining the genre. I enjoyed reading it. Probably because I don't usually read those types of books often.

About two weeks ago, Shadow of the Giant by Card. A great way to end the series. Although I kinda wish it weren't.

Just finished Eragon...it was so-so, nothing special really (no offense to fans). Props to the author though, for writing a very readable story at such a young age.

Ha, same here. I finished Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency about a week ago, and since then I've also read the second Dirk Gently novel, The Long, Dark, Tea-Time of the Soul.

The Dirk Gently books are by the same author as the Hitch-hikers Guide... the writing style and humour is distinctively by the same person, but the Dirk Gently novels are a bit less 'wacky'. Depending on your sense of humour, you might enjoy them slightly more or slightly less than the Hitch-hikers book, but either way, if you like Hitch-hikers you'll like these to some extent (I prefer them myself).

So yeah, they're sci-fi comedy. DGHDA is more science/computer-oriented, whereas LDTTotS is a bit more mythology-based. The first book is better in my opinion - the plot is more interesting (considering it's primarily a comedy, the plot was actually very good and kept me hooked - I loved the way lots of apparently very unrelated strands tied together at the end), the characters were stronger (Richard and Reg were both good) and the humour was slightly more consistent... there were a few less LOL moments than in the second one, but there was something which made me smile on nearly every page. Maybe it's because of my background in physics and computer science, I dunno. >_> The only way in which the second novel is better is Dirk Gently himself - in the first one, he's introduced fairly late on, and you don't get a full feel for him (or see the full extent of his hilarity). But in the second one, things focus on him more, and he really comes into his own... he's a great character.

Both are worth reading, anyway, especially for any HHG fans unfamiliar with the few other things Adams did.

A Lesson Before Dying by Earnest Gaines. I actually liked this entire book from start to finish. I was really pleased with how everything was done. Definitely worth checking out.

I finished my first book from the Vampire Chronicles of Anne Rice "Queen of the Damned" and I want to ask a question: why the heck everybody praises her novels so much??? I don't know about the other book in Vampire Chronicles, but this one SUCKSSSS. After this third book, the one after it seem going down hills too. I mean... I read it and don't understand why everybody likes it. It drags on and on. It switchs narators too much and confusing. She wastes too much time one explaining the reason Akasha want to destroy male population. Too many umimportant characters are introduced in details. Plus, the emotions in characters seem to be very vage as well.

I finished the first book of the Warcraft: War of the Ancients Trilogy last week. Halfway done the second book, and I expect to finish it by Sunday so I can start reading Harry Potter: The Half Blood Prince on Monday.
The War of the Ancients Trilogy is better than I expected. Anybody who has played the Warcraft games must read this book. It builds on the plot as a whole seperate story.
