    I didn't get much out of the book.

    It is incredibly obvious and from the beginning Robert is completely self absorbed. He should have stayed with Rhetoric.

    I'm going to stick it out though, as I've decided I'd like a motorbike.

    The Way of the Superior Man - David Deida

    A few books on foreign language.

    I haven't read a fiction book in years... probably over a decade.

    Dubliners.

    I can't get through Ulysses unless I have a significant amount of stimulant in me, but that book is a beautiful mess... or so I heard.

    Ah, glad I'm not the only one. I thoroughly enjoyed it even though it was written for teens. I'm nearly through Catching Fire now which is equally enjoyable.

    I've read several of Lovecraft's compilations. How are these stories in comparison to the ones he wrote directly? Why hasn't anyone released any good Cthulhu motion pictures yet?

    The short stories are by different authors and their quality varies, but I'm liking them so far. They describe what might happen after cthulhu has risen, which is something lovecraft never did.

    About motion pictures.. Lovecrafts stories build heavily on the source of horror remaining hidden, being unknown and unknowable - something hard to convey through video.

    I'd agree that it is difficult. However, the ones that can pull it off are the ones we remember. IE the first Alien and Jaws movies. I have heard that they're working on At the Mountains of Madness.

    I also want to read the Hunger Games, so you can recommend it? I wasn't sure because it's more a book for teenagers, but it sounds quite interesting and I'm looking forward to the movies as well.
    At the moment I'm reading Lord of the rings part 1 (for the first time) and I think it was really interesting... it's different from the movies!

    cartur, I would recommend it. There's actually a trilogy. I'm about half way through the third book. There's definitely a teenage tone to a lot of the writting, but it makes for a quick read.
