Reading The Drop by Dennis Lehane

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

Recently  I was out of town the past 4 days so I made a trip to a  Barnes and Noble store and found and bought the movie novelization of the movie Aliens.  From what I read on wikipedia, the Aliens movie novel has the Special Edition stuff such as Ripley looking at a electronic photo of  her dead daughter etc.

Not one of his I've read. I'll get to it eventually, I'm sure.

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

As big a horror fan as I am, I've read surprisingly few of King's books.  This is my first time reading Christine.  So far, so good.  But one thing I've noticed about King in the few books of his I've read is that while his books are exceedingly well-written and the stories in and of themselves are dynamic and expertly composed, his endings tend to suck big, fat, hairy balls.  I'm hoping Christine isn't another case in point.

I'm re-reading most of the Books of Blood by Clive Barker. Kinda got back into them when I heard they were making Jaqueline Ess into a movie soon. They're good short stories, perfect for when you just have a half hour to do something quick.

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

Picked up a book titled, "The Portable Nietzsche" from a two-floor antique shop in Stillwater, MN a few days back. Just $4, and for the material it offers, that's great.

I've always been fond of Nietzsche's passionate character and ideas (his dozens of brilliant aphorisms have always been most appealing to me), but was initially introduced to him via a bunch of alternative sources instead of his actual works. I did try to read "Beyond Good and Evil" at one point, but couldn't understand a lick of it. It was his writing style that put me off. With this "Portable Nietzsche", however, I'm finding the translation and even structure of the text itself to be much more coherent and digestible. I'm very much enjoying his fiery, inspired writing right now. smile Nietzsche rules!!
