So yes my question is do any of you like any books? Recommend anything? I really like The Spy Who Came From The Cold and the Sherlock Holmes books.

I just finished a book called Super Sad True Love Story by Gary Shteyngart.

http://www.amazon.com/Super-Sad-True-Love-Story/dp/1400066409

It's set slightly in the future where the USA is falling apart politically and economically and the Chinese are emerging as the world power. In the USA everyone is completely shallow and ignorant, and everyone uses something called an apparat (like a combo iPhone, PDA organiser, internet etc etc) to communicate and to rate each other in categories like Fuckability and Credit Rating. Everyone also uses a social networking site called GlobalTeens which is obviously a FaceBook parody. The main character is a New Yorker called Lenny who is a salesman for a company that sells treatments that try to make rich people live forever. He falls in love with a Korean girl called Eunice and the book is the story of their relationship as the USA collapses around them.

It's not bad.

One Book I read in english lately was "Animal farm" by George orwell. If you dont know what it is, then well you have too use google, or better yet read it. I liked it very much.



Right now Im readin "The long dark tee-time of the soul" by Douglas adams, the brillinant guy who wrote "the hitchhhikers guide to the galaxy series" witch Im by the way read part one and two of so far. Its quite funny,even if Im only about 20 pages in it at the moment. Much better than the hitchhhikers guide 2, witch I thought was dissapointing.

Books by Bryce Courtney, David Eddings, and sometimes Eoin Colfer.

Paranoia by Joseph Finder is also very good.

I haven't been reading as much as I probably should. The most recent book I've read would be Devil's Rose by Brom.
