  • Jack Kerouac is a great writer, I've never finished reading "On The Road" but I can tell that it's well written. Back to your question, I'm reading a French thriller novel "La Promesse des ténèbres" or "The Promise of The Shadows" by Maxime Chattam.

  • I'm actually reading the Quran right now as well as No god but God by Reza Aslan. I feel like I give a lot of negative opinions on Islam but I don't inform my views from that perspective enough. Just my Western perspective.

    So far the Quran is really just confirming my beliefs to be honest. And I feel Aslan is reaching a lot in his assertions and leaves out key points.

    • I have plans to read the quran also at least once in my life... what is that other book about?

    • It just sort of walks through the history of Islam and the rise and decline of the Muslim world. Mostly it's about the battling ideologies in the region.. where you have the more liberal minded reform and then the more traditional fundamentalists philosophies which allows for.. Islamofascism (my word, not his) to flourish.

      He favors a more modern interpretation of the faith. Or at least more open minded. He thinks that the Muslim world needs room to develop democracy on its own without having it introduced with a Western twist. But I think he neglects a lot of key issues when he argues that that was already happening in the years prior to Western involvement.

    • SOUNDS like an intresting book

  • Oh GOD. I despised On the Road. :P

    Right now, I'm reading A Confederacy of Dunces, the Pulitzer Prize-winning story of the hilarious, despicable, and totally memorable Ignatius T. Reilly. Totally bizarre but really funny and a real page-turner.

    • Good question, have a like

    • Stieg larsson writes good books i think but this one i don't know yet

    • @Vekin You've probably read it, he only wrote three books but they have different titles in different regions
      the Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest (original title in Swedish: Luftslottet som sprängdes, literally, the air castle[a] that was blown up)

  • I have heard of "On The Road" but not read it yet - I mainly read bestsellers thrillers from Amazon, I am reading David Baldacci's "Last Man Standing" but I bought it unseen (on Amazon) and the print is tiny, very annoying.

    • I have to admit, I'm the same way. I just can't finish any books these days. My mood is always changing, and I always have about 10 books on the go, which is a really bad habit! but battered and pensive? hmm. Well, the one I read by him was quite surreal and contained lots of nice little bits of existential philosophy (which I want to post quotes to, but don't want to ruin your own discoveries) :) But it's a novel. You're reading a novel too? Or just a collection of ideas from his direct perspective? You're a very sensitive girl, you know :)

    • @Levin I do know, but I find that it's better to be sensitive and get hit hard by emotions than not feeling much at all. And yes, I'm reading a novel also. And I'm exactly like you too! At the moment, I have about 6 books I have started and not finished, it is unhealthy!! But it is the reader's right to stop reading if he wishes so, to hell with that! Things are getting less dark in the book, we're getting some answers, which is good (for the character and for little young me :P)

  • Throne of Glass series and it's soooooo good! It's YA but really really awesome.
