Topic: What's the last book you read or bought?

I just ordered 2 novels on amazon.com:

The Amityville Horror(paperback) by Jay Anson

Jaws(hardcover) by Peter Benchley

Re: What's the last book you read or bought?

The last book I read was 'Let the Right One In' and I loved it.  I don't know why they didn't keep some of the details in the film unless they thought that a love story between a chubby, incontinent kleptomaniac and a castrated boy, dressing as a girl, and living with a paedophile who gets him/her blood in exchange for being allowed the odd fiddle, might not be quite so touching and beautiful...and yet it is, maybe even more so than in the film.  smile

The last book I bought was the collected ghost stories of M.R. James which I am reading just now because Christmas and M.R. James go really well together.  cool

^ Ooh, love the Amityville book.  With the flies counting the chapters!

I just read Clive Barker's Mister B. Gone.  It was fantastic and really different. Also a book about graphic novels.  It gave a taste of all the major titles.  Title and author escape me right now, but if someone's interested, I can find out.     And I'm guessing a lot of books coming my way for Christmas.

The Living Dead. It's a collection of short stories. some good, some are just ok.

Re: What's the last book you read or bought?

Let the Right one in and Battle Royale. I like the Battle Royale movie much better than the book.

Re: What's the last book you read or bought?

The first Sandman book (Gaiman), the Heroes graphic novel, a Hiyao Miyazaki bio and filmography - thank you Santa!!!!!  Oh yes, didn't start reading it, but also got The Road.

Sandman's interesting, but I found it hard to get into, probably just me though tongue  The Miyazaki bio sounds really cool though! And The Road is awesome also

Re: What's the last book you read or bought?

I just ordered Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill

Re: What's the last book you read or bought?

Re: What's the last book you read or bought?

Bought and currently reading Clive Barker's MISTER B. GONE.

Re: What's the last book you read or bought?

I just bought, and surprisingly am enjoying Bret Hart's autobiography.  I'd recommend it to anyone who remotely likes wrestling, absolutely makes a lot of people look bad and lots of sex!

Re: What's the last book you read or bought?

Zomboy, sounds like we have really similar interests!

to all:  Heart Shaped Box was a really great read.  I think I read it in two sittings.  It was really visual.

Golden Simitar - you'll have to let me know how you like Mister B. Gone.  I loved it.  Is it me or was there an illustration of Botch in a long ago Rue Morgue? 

Ironically, the Sandman is keeping me up nights and giving me super-wierd nightmares!  I am really enjoying it and have felt chills more than a few times.
