bibliobabekat Went to the book sale across the street and found these gems! Anyone have any opinions on these? Yay or nay? 3d
  •   bibliobabekat @concreteshark I read Cell and thought it was fantastic (save for one part). Stephen King and zombies, two of my favorite things. I have Mr B Gone but I haven't read it yet. Glad to get the recommendation! I'm always looking for something awesome to read. 3d
  •   somnabulist Cleopatra is such a good book! 3d
  •   concreteshark @bibliobabekat google quotes from Mr B Gone. One of the craziest books ive ever read. 3d
  •   joeyfromspace What's the top one? I'm reading Rise and Fall of the Third Reich and Javascript the Good Parts 3d
  •   bibliobabekat @somnabulist Good to know! Didn't want to find out I had a bunch of stinkers on my hands, ha ha. 3d
  •   bibliobabekat @joeyfromspace It's called "Some Girls - My life in a harem" and it's a memoir about a woman who becomes a concubine for 18 months. 3d
  •   bibliobabekat @joeyfromspace Also, your literary taste seems a little more sophisticated than my usual horror fare 3d
  •   joeyfromspace @bibliobabekat it takes all kinds of fruit to make fruit cup. 3d

essemgee Day 3: upcoming reading stack...if I actually stacked up all the books in my apartment I've yet to read, it would probably reach the ceiling (which I kind of want to do now, out of curiosity, so I might) but these are a few I plan to read this summer...anyone read any of these, and if so, what did you think? #books #lillytalesbigten 4mon

  •   matthew_lawson I did enjoy The Sisters Brother, especially because it is a western, which I know you also enjoy. Not to mention a recently published western which is rare. I will however say, I think it was missing that little something that could make it 'great'. I'm sure you will understand what I mean upon completion. Be sure to let me know what you think. 3w
  •   tylerweaver8 @matthew_lawson I will for sure, what do you think of the cover? Here in Canada this is the only cover available, even on the smaller paperback and on the rare hardcover. I have been feeling very unfulfilled after I finished the Lonesome Dove books, so hopefully this one helps. I may read a few of the single McMurtry books I have, I am also chomping at the bit to get my hands on the new McCormick book, which I believe comes out this month. Right oh, I will let you know what I think of this book, brother. 3w
  •   matthew_lawson I actually like the cover, it definitely catches the eye, and being as it is a 'modern' western, I guess they had to be creative. I own a hardcover copy with the same cover, in Australia I have seen only one different cover, but I do prefer the original. I wouldn't go expecting this book to fill that void, I hate to say it, but no western will ever compare (in my opinion) now that you have read 'Lonesome Dove'. Only 'Blood Meridian' comes close, haha. I look forward to your thoughts, my friend. 3w
  •   tylerweaver8 @matthew_lawson Blood Meridian stands on its own my friend. I think the Boarder Trilogy, comes close, All The Pretty Horses has the love story, and the other two have some of the aspects. I am seriously considering re reading Lonesome Dove in a few books from now. 3w
  •   tylerweaver8 @matthew_lawson so I liked this book, but I didn't find it as great as I was expecting. It was very well written and very good story but it just seemed a bit simple in how it progressed. I did find some parts funny but also found I was expecting the ending. Overall its a 3 - 3.5 out of 5 in my opinion. 1w
  •   matthew_lawson Yes, definitely. I didn't want to spoil it too badly for you. The story is good, however, the characters lack that 'hero' appeal. There is nothing overly spectacular about their abilities or the story itself. The writing was good, I just felt the protagonists could be more likeable, able, and 'worthy' of our time - if that makes any sense. 1w
  •   tylerweaver8 @matthew_lawson it was just a bit predictable, a bit too cliche, still a very good story 1w
