Its realy good style in english I love it

The book you read at the moment seems to be one of those Dan Brown immitators

I can feel your pain steffibj Reading a horrible book is worse than watching a horrible movie. AFter reading bad books, i just kept pondering on how the story should have been and I can't keep it out of my head even if I tried to. I would then complain about it for days until there's something good to get me out of it.

I was reading this horror story called "The Ruins". It's supposed to be scary and mysterious but it turns out to be more gruesome and gorish. It just sucked all the happiness out of me. I couldn't even finish the book because it was too much.

hmm.... i can tell what i like but i dunno ... ok i really liked the short stories of Roald Dahl. actually he has written a lot of books for kids but if you ask me the short stories are a bit... let me say it this way i wouldnt pass all his short stories to a little kid. if you want i can lend it to you because it cost me 30 euro back then and i dunno if it is still available. it was a birthday present of the parents of my boyfriend. XD *chus to thocchan* some of his short stories are available on the net and you can read them for free.

i also like laura joh rowland's books... thriller/crime and japan in one XD but there are already 10 volumes available here in germany...

btw the short stories of dahl are only in english.... XD

^^ I know Roald Dahl... at least some of his stories...
thanx for the idea with lending the book, but then you won't get it back before next year ^^...........

but the other thing with Laura Joh Rowland sounds interesting... see if I can get something on Amazon

and.... English shouldn't be a problem Wink
and when it comes to books..... shy the price doesn't matter for me..... bookaholic XDDDDD"

so thanx for your recomendation steffi ^^ v
I ordered the first book by Laura J. Rowland yesterday..... together with another one by Sujata Massey, it's called "Bittere Mandelblüten" in German....... goes in the same direction of a crime story, but in our days.

and now I have to wait for the books, because the one by Rowland will only be shipped from Friday on.... T__________T

I want to have your problem not to know what to read.

At the Moments I've got hundreds of mangas to read (Conan, Bleach...) and I haven't yet finished cloud of sparrows T__T

And then there are comics wich are send every month to my and I didn't even have a look on them!

Better I stop doing everything except reading reading random - Page 2 354265

since the site is done, i think, you will have more time to read some stuff.

and im not the one to blame reading random - Page 2 498821 dont worry when you need more time for reading the books i have given to you. next month bleach volume 21 and conan 52 will follow XD

i guess you feel like I do with our projects. Instead of getting less to do the list is growing reading random - Page 2 354265

since I don't have internet connection yet in my room here in Spain... and until Wednesday there will be none... and I don't know if I can use it on Wednesday...
well I'll be reading a lot during the next time... and I get kinda dizzy from reading this much.
But the book I'm reading is really interesting... I've finished the first part which plays in India, and I'm now continuing with Arabia.

Hopefully I get to buy some good German books here ^^..... I want to have something German, since there are only Spanish tv-channels

Sorry Setffibj for not replying sooner. My classes has started and I was busy the whole last week.

Ruins is a horror-thriller about four Americans traveling in Mexico who stumble across a nightmare in the jungle. In the beginning it's really intresting because the reader dont know the cause of the horror. But once we found out why the mysterious stuff are happening (infact they are not really mysterious at all) on half way through the book, it became a plain torture to read it. Rather than focusing on the mystery, the book deals more with how the characters are trying to survive. I really dont recommand this book because I didn't enjoy reading it and the ending is not satisfactory. Very Happy I hope I make sense because english is not my first language. Ruin is the type of fiction like the movie "The Cave", where the characters are always running away from the killer.

I found my new fav author Razz Khaled Hosseini.. He has only released two books, "The Kite Runner" and "A Thousand Splendid Suns". His stories are very realistic and heart-warming. I totally recommand him. If you like vampire stories "The Historian" by Elizabeth Kostova is really awesome Very Happy

@jeryn: Can you tell me about what book you are reading? Is it in German? if it's in english, i'm interested in it. I'm intrigued about arabia and india..

My classes are started last week soo, I won't have much time to read the books anymore. I'm a science major so, I hardly have to read anything interesting for the school. Please recommand me any good books. I'm into fantasy, folklores, history etc... sad

btw..I'm taking elementary japanese. We just finished learning hiragana..and next week, I'm gonna learn katakana XDDD Japanese is soo fun.

@ Ophellia.... well the book I'm reading is in German.... but the author's not German.... so I thought there's also an English edition.... and I searched for it, to get the English title.... but I didn't found an English version..... I think it's because the author speaks German.... and has lived in Germany for quite a while....
but I'll continue my search

XD.... you're so lucky that you can take classes in Japanese... I have to learn everything for myself
but sure it makes fun

@ Ophellia..... so... as I promised I continued to search for the book, and I found some sites... first of all:
wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ilija_Trojanow .... where they put an English title to the book - it's The Collector of Worlds
and then this one: http://www.signandsight.com/features/690.html ..... it's a translated newspaper article - so that you have now some information about the content in English.
and here an interview with him... http://www.qantara.de/webcom/show_article.php/_c-310/_nr-324/i.html?PHPSESSID=5 ...why he chose to write in German, and about the book itself

but... nothing more... I don't think that there's an English version of the book yet wink .... but since it is very succesfull in Germany, I think it will be translated.... I also found somewhere the note "has not yet been translated"... so if you're really interested in the book after reading the links above, you may just have to wait a little bit more v
ehm..... when you're now wondering how come she searched so much and put the information in here..... Laughing well that's because of my studies.......... reading random - Page 2 202471

~~~~~~
anyone ever read something by Paul Auster??... I just bought a book by him a few days ago.....

elsewhere, im reading my latest package of manga ( i guess 25 manga)

Very Happy Thank you very much jeryn for the book info. I'll keep my eyes on that one XD Hopefully it would get translated to english. And ahhah atleast your studies are interesting. Mine??? I have to spend hours in the lab just to study the chemical reactions. It gets tiring after a while and dangerous.

T_____T I have to read a Spanish drama right now... from the 18th century, and it's really hard to understand - although it's already written in modern Spanish..... uhhh I don't wanna know how it would be in old Spanish >_>

but... reading random - Page 2 203125 that means that I can't continue with my book. I started the Africa part on Monday. And I love how it's written from two changing perspectives.
See Ophellia... my studies also have their negative parts Laughing

ehm... yeah let me count the books I'm reading right now ... I guess 5 or 6 is a good number here. i really should stop myself from buying books and maybe i should finish at least one from those 5-6 books T___T.
I know how you feel jeryn T___T I went to a book shop on friday and bought the latest Sergej Lukianenko book which got released in germany. why did i go to the book shop??? for three manga and i went outside with a 30 euro less T___T (sergej had cost me 15 euro)
but i will have plenty of time to read a lot of books while getting back home.
