I tried reading The Hunger Games because apparently it's a brilliant book and a friend whose recommendations I trust said it was good, but...boring. And the only books I consider boring are books by Jane Austen, so that's a big deal. I like crime/thriller books at the moment though; Jeffery Deaver, Karin Slaughter and Dean Koontz's books are the best.

  • The one above all, the end of all that is.
Anyone else feel that Hakuri Murakami is a bit overrated? I only read one of his books, Kafka on the beach. I guess it was alright, but everybody is always raving about how awesome he is.

I do feel he is overrated! I don't understand why he is so popular. I read three of his books (A Wild Sheep Chase; Dance Dance Dance; The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle) and they all are so familiar.. Guy is left by his girlfriend, strange things begin to happen, and in the end girlfriend comes back.
hello memory lover, you are mine

The only book of him I've read is Sputnik Sweetheart. It was alright, I liked it, but nothing really too spectacular. The translation was from English to my native language, so I don't know how adequate it was after 2 translations. I didn't really know he was so popular. The last book I finished is The Black Obelisk by Erich Maria Remarque. Really like this writer.

I remember when I was younger somebody suggested Dean Koontz to me and I said ok and bought like 3 of them because they had cool covers. I couldn't turn a page but I kept on it anyway to get my money's worth. Anybody that likes him is suffering from criminal boredom.

I read one of his books and loved it, but haven't really gotten into any of his others. I'll read more or less anything, though. I just finished reading a book called Girl 4 by Will Carver, great book, in my opinion.

reading clarice lispector's the hour of the star. it's so well written. you really feel the isolation of the main character who is being written about by an unknown author who seems to know everything about her.
