Just finished Joe Hill's Heart Shaped Box.

I'm sure some of you are Neil Gaiman fans like I am. This novel reminds me of the fantasy/horror Gaiman sometimes writes, sort of a grown up Graveyard Book in its tone and style. It doesn't have the majesty and scope of American Gods, but it's sort of like that, too..

I'm always on the lookout for things that remind me of Gaiman, and this is right up there.

I finished reading that recently too. Pretty good overall.

My thoughts on the ending of the series: (And yeah, the spoiler tag really does mean there are spoilers for the record)

Spoiler Alert!

Ranior is DJ Khosumet the current and hopefully future Dark Lord...

Re: Books: What are you currently reading?

Finished 11 22 63 by Stephen King-

Pretty good book. There's a time travel element, but not a science one, just a "rabbit hole" in time with its own set of rules. There are horrific elements- some brutal crimes- but it's definitely not a horror novel. Unlike most of King's books, I thought the ending was just right. It was bittersweet, not what I thought would happen, not what I hoped would happen, but it fit the themes of the book. Like most of his work, it's overlong, but still a good read.

Re: Books: What are you currently reading?



I had no idea what this book was about when I started it, but overall I am liking the plot. I mostly am reading it before I see the movie since I like to do that. I was pleasantly surprised when I started it. I honestly thought it was going to be some Gothic romance crap, but I like Fincher's work as a director and I can appreciate the literary dimensions of books I don't like so I thought I'd give it a try. Not at all what I expected, and overall a fantastic read so far.
