Re: Your current read v6

Veery good, all of you good people!

I have been reading several books lately and as usual. Finally managed to force my self to the intro of a Deepak Chopra's book and it is not half so bad. I am very willing to continue reading it.
In our recent Sicily vacation i was forced to read a modern historical sentimental novel Painting Mona Lisa. At some point through our years of travelling with my hubby I've stopped taking books with me and chose to be surprised by the hostel oder hotel's library, which could be unusually good. In the novel interesting was the point of view it was written from. First person narrator ist Madonna Lisa, Monna Lisa from the early age of 10 until well into her thirties. The plot seems somewhat predictable and LEONARDO plays just a side-role in it, which also gets quite hurried up and slopped over at the end.
Nevertheless, anyway rainy day in Sicily worth, it will save you a lot of cash, too Not that rainy days in Sicily are often at all..

Callie lost her parents when the Spore Wars wiped out everyone between the ages of twenty and sixty. She and her little brother, Tyler, go on the run, living as squatters with their friend Michael and fighting off renegades who would kill them for a cookie. Callie's only hope is Prime Destinations, a disturbing place in Beverly Hills run by a mysterious figure known as the Old Man.

He hires teens to rent their bodies to Enders—seniors who want to be young again. Callie, desperate for the money that will keep her, Tyler, and Michael alive, agrees to be a donor. But the neurochip they place in Callie's head malfunctions and she wakes up in the life of her renter, living in her mansion, driving her cars, and going out with a senator's grandson. It feels almost like a fairy tale, until Callie discovers that her renter intends to do more than party—and that Prime Destinations' plans are more evil than Callie could ever have imagined. . . .

I don't think I could do any better in telling what the book is about, not without spoiling stuff

Re: Your current read v6

I'm reading A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin as well I had a little break after reading A Storm of Swords because reading these books can be time consuming and I had a whole load of shorter books I wanted to read, but back into the series now

Snow White, Blood Red edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling. This is not for those with week stomachs or prude minds.

Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. I must admit, I don't quite understand this book

Re: Your current read v6

Rereading the first Hitchhikers's Guide to the Galaxy. I find it much easier to read and understand when reading a hard copy versus my Kindle copy. Don't know why.

Also, rereading the Hunger Games to prepare for the movie.

Re: Your current read v6

The Well of Loneliness ~ Radclyffe Hall

Well, so far it conveys a certain loneliness and urgency and it's engaging. However, I'm not too keen on the rather crude reoccurring religious and pastoral references and imagery.

I've finished Deathly Hallows and Rage, so I've started A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Brugess and will start Bachman's next, The Long Walk.

Re: Your current read v6

After about a month of not even wanting to pick up my Kindle, I've given up on Le Mort d'Arthur and now I'm reading The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, which is infinitely more interesting already
