Thread: What book are you reading right now?

  1. #301
    Just finished Moneyball. Awesome book, but I feel like it won't transfer over to film very well.

    Now onto the GOT series.

    Reading Elmer Kelton's "The Wolf and the Buffalo". Aside from Lonesome Dove, one of the better western's I've read. Parallel stories of a Comanche and a black Buffalo Soldier stationed out of Ft. Concho.

    Pretty damned good read. The character development is incredible.

    Not far enough in to have an opinion, but I hope the guy tones down some of his potshots in regards to religion. I'm hoping it doesn't end up reading like a sermon, because I prefer the ones where I can draw my own conclusions.

    Just finished Enders Game. Really enjoyed it.

    Also finished Under and Alone about the ATF agent who infiltrated the Mongols OMG. Really enjoyed it too.

    Now reading No Angel about the ATF agent that infiltrated the Hells Angels OMG. I'm about 1/2 way through it. It's good, but I enjoyed Under and Alone much more. It was a better written book and a lot more of an interesting read thus far.

    I was also ambivalent about the beginning. I enjoyed the book.

    Just finished The Spies of the Balkans by Alan Furst. Great atmospheric stuff. The first of his novels (all set at the start of WW2) that I could see being made into a film.

    I think I read awhile back that UT is getting his manuscripts--although what kind of MS do you get if the guy writes on a computer?

    Was in the allergist, and picked up "A Baby Sister for Frances". One of the books I read as a kid and read to my little ones, although the one I really remembered was "Bread and Jam for Frances".

    When I was little, it was all about the little badger, but now I relate to the parents, and this book was about little Frances running away.

    Very emotional. My little Franceses have grown up, and will soon be gone.

    Be careful of saving those kids books -- they might bring back memories.

    I'm reading his book "The Story of Football". I first read it when I was in fourth grade-- yay public schools with their 15-yr old books, but I was fascinated by the story of how the game evolved, the leaders in creating the rules and structure of the game, all the leather helmet stuff. I've never forgotten that book and I got a wild hair to order it off Amazon.com second hand... cost like $3 and just brought back a flood of nostalgia. This is the book where I first learned about so many different aspects of the history of the game; I wouldn't be the student of its history I am today without Leckie's book.

    very very weird concept. This guy is original for sure. Get's sorta philosophical like Neil Stephenson (but not to his extent) but this one so far has been great. A good mix.

    put this one just behind his Bas-Lag based novels (Perdido, Scar etc...)

    I'm reading The Best and the Brightest by David Halberstam. It's full of information, but it's a beating to read. I don't know if it's his writing style or if it's because it's just so depressing or a combination of the two.

    I have a "shelf" on my Nook called "Current". I just took A Dance with Dragons off of it because I finished it (loved it, btw). It still has the following:
    Lars Brownworth - Lost to the West
    Jim Butcher - Storm Front (first Dresden novel)
    Eric Flint - 1824: The Arkansas War
    Doris Kearns Goodwin - Team of Rivals
    Josh Heilemann - Game Change
    Mitch Horowitz - Occult America
    Meghan McCain - Dirty Sexy Politics
    Erik Sass - The Mental Floss History of the World

    I read what my mood calls for as my mood calls for it.

    Very interested to hear your thoughts if you've finished the book. I had to grin when I read "I prefer the ones where I can draw my own conclusions."
    I enjoyed it. It wasn't the best book I'd ever read, but it was solid, and I definitely have to give credit to the ending. It truly is one hell of a twist, considering everything else that had been set up previously.

    I blew through Without Remorse in about 2 weeks, and it would have been sooner except I was out of town last weekend. I think next I'm going to hit up Pillars of Earth, because of some profuse praise from some of my friends, as well as the fact that it's either that or Game of Thrones. And since that's about a 5k page commitment on just the first 4, I figure I should get this out of the way first.

    As for the ending:

    Spoiler!

    Gone To Texas, the Josey Wales story and Dispossessing the Wilderness, a story about Indian removal and the making of the National Parks by Mark David Spence. Also doing a reread of some of my Edward Abbey collection.

    I'd say I really RESPECT it more than I liked it. It was definitely an unexpected twist. Of course, it's a twist because he's misleading the readers purposely. But I didn't see it coming. Which I respect a lot.

    That's a great book. I'm also a nerd. So there's that.

    Before that - Tales of the Apocolypse - I love that stuff - bing the only one around. George Stewart's "Earth Abides" makes Stephen King's The Stand look easy...
