Default Book Recommendations...

I'm going to the bookstore tonight and I need a fairly quick read.

I want it to be interesting.

Nothing too girly.

I'm open to pretty mcuh any genre.

Any ideas? I know the description is pretty vague, but I need it for a test next week and I'd like to read mutiple books.

Disturbing, blackly comic and riveting.

A kid who grew up in a very eccentric therapist's house, figures out he's ***, and just grows up, meanwhile his phsycotic mother's condition just gets worse.

There are some really graphic sex depictions in it, but it's so well written that you can get past that.

That was a really good movie too. I didn't realize it was a book first. :o

And try Running Man by Stephen King (so much better than the movie) or Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. They're both small, but thick, which averages out to a not too long read.

The Running Man was published in a quartet entitled 'The Bachman Books'. I remember 'The Long Walk' being a great story. I am not the biggest Stephen King fan. I much prefer his pseudonym work and his short stories
