Yup, for all the bookworms out there, what was the last book you've read and would you recommend it?

    i'm currently reading "The Class" by Erich Segal, it's an old book... i believe some of you have read it already. anyways, soon to be last na siya kaya post ko na dito.

    it's a great book, but medyo boring siya. i don't know about the others but i find it boring. yes mabilis yun story pero konti lang nangyayari.

    I just read The Beach by Alex Garland. Great book! They say the movie's really bad so I'm about to watch it in vcd to see how bad...

    Right now, I'm reading Harry Potter :)

    I finally finished Mohawk by Richard Russo. It's a bit complex (I had to reread it to understand it), but the story's great, so if you have the time, I'd recommend it.

    I just finished reading Red Dragon by Thomas Harris. It's the prequel to Silence of the Lambs. I wouldn't recommend it though.

    I'm currently reading Instance of the Fingerpost. Looks pretty promising.

    Kulit: I luuuv Erich Segal! Try reading Doctors. That's his best book for me.

    Ada: hehe... "Doctors" was the first Erich Segal book that i've read. but i had a very hard time understanding it kse ang lalim ng mga medical terms, hde pa ako nag ba bio nun. haha, i can still remember may katabi pa akong dictionary while reading that book. but it's good. hehe... hmmmm... ma re read nga...

    my sis told me his book "Love Story" is also good. but the so-called part 2 "Oliver's Story" is not worth reading.

    have anyone read Nicholas Sparks' "Message in a Bottle"? i think the book's better than the movie. they have the same ending but there's something different. what do u think?

    and also Nicholas Sparks' "The Notebook". what do u think of it? well, i don't liked it that much. medyo drag kse yun story eh... (here i go again, gusto ko kse fast paced yun mga story... hehe)

    :D :D :D

    Kulit: Yeah, trademark na ni Segal yung paggamit ng malalalim na words. Kailangan mo talaga ni dictionary sa tabi mo.

    Love Story and Oliver's Story are both okay. Your typical mush books. ;) I agree with you on the The Notebook. Bo-rrring.

    Amy Tan's "The Joy Luck Club". About four Chinese mother raising their American-born daughters, their relationship with their past, and coming to terms with the American present.

    Many of you may have read this or seen the movie. It's actually one of my favorites, mostly because I can relate to the cultural division that's presented in this novel. But Tan has a great story-telling voice that literally drew all my attention. The stories within the story are great, even hilarious sometimes.

    Highly recommend this to anyone! :)

    Douglas Coupland's "Life After God". I would recommend all of Coupland's books, if only to put the whole Generation X (a term he coined and the title of his first novel) thing into perspective.

    The Soldier Boy by Michael French. It's your ordinary young adult paperback, which deals with romance and friendship. The plot is simple, so I really wouldn't recommend it.

    Right now, I'm reading "Wings" by Danielle Steel. I read it already, but it's a very good book about love and aviation, that I couldn't help but re-read it once more.

    I just read " The Hot Zone " by Richard Preston. It's kinda the movie OUTBREAK. It's about a virus that spread in Africa. The usual stuffs...ek..ek. But it was very interesting and it had some wild twists in the story. :p
    I just finished reading WITNESS FOR THE DEFENSE by Michael Eberhardt.

    Its a very good book especially for those who love courtroom drama. Basically deals on the privilege communication between the lawyer and his client. :)

    Am still finishing Foucault's Pendulum by Umberto Eco. It is a maze to read, but it is quite intriguing. Can't wait to see how it ends.

    May Angels smile upon you,
    ps. No offence to ADA, but RED DRAGON is a GREAT NOVEL. Much better than SILENCE... darker, more thrilling. You really get into the psycho's head... I find that quite appealing. =)

    JDELEON: Congratulations on actually understanding Eco's Foucault's Pendulum! :D I gave up after less than 20 pages, but I'm planning to get back to it someday (maybe 10 years from now? hehe).
