the book tab
i know there's already a thread about books, but it seems to me that it's only dedicated to those reads we found enjoyable...i was thinking this could just be a thread to keep tabs on what we're reading regardless if it's really good or just plain blah....if you don't think so delete it, or move it or whatever...
Espedair Street - Iain Banks
i finally got arround to reading this, and i'm sorry to say that, after just having returned from the glorious landscapes of the texas panhandle in "That old Ace in the hole" by Annie Proulx, this came off as an incredible bland and dull experience. especially dissapointing because i really enjoyed The wasp factory and Feersum Endjin. the man has an incredible imagination so i'm assuming that this book came in an especially dry period for him. the life of a rockstar seems ( as incredible as it sounds ) very bland, ordinary...and that's not what i'm looking for when i pick up a book....i'm only half way through it and considering abandoning the endevour....Lolita, Brave new world and the complete novels of George Orwell await....
