Kiss Me, Judas by Will Christopher Baer

An ex-cop/mental patient meets a beautiful prostitute in a hotel bar. He takes her to his room and then...hours later, he wakes up in a bathtub full of ice. His side is stapled shut. He's missing a kidney. And he's pissed off. That's the set-up of this brilliantly written nightmarish thriller. It's loaded with twisted humor and is just really cool.

I'm about to start The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom.

This semester I have to read Rachel Carson's Silent Spring. Has anyone read this, I'm very interesting in reading her thoughts but I've heard the book is tough to get through.

For me, George Orwell's 1984. And after, I think I might read Catcher In The Rye for about the fourth time.


AWESOME BOOKS...

I"m in the middle of Black Wind by Cussler..and then I think I might read the Lord of the Rings again..or maybe another Tolkien book

Intensity is a damn fine book and Odd Thomas is one of his better ones of late. His latest, Life Expectancy, is an enjoyable read, but not as good as earlier books.

I picked up Catcher In The Rye again after I finished 1984 the other day. Jesus Christ I love that book. Probably because Holden reminds me of myself in many ways. And because after reading it I feel like theres a Holden Caulfield I could call up and talk about the state of the world with. Or something.

"He died with a felafel in his hand"- John Birmingham

This is so brilliantly funny, if you read it while you're on the can, and you've got to the point where you just can't poop anymore... well, one little joke, and it'll keep coming right out!

I'm reading "The first chronicles of Thomas Covenant - Lord Foul's bane" By Stephen Donaldson, its great, though sometimes the langauge is a little beyond me.

I'm reading Rules of Attraction by Brett Easton Ellis. Like all of his books, it is about decadance, debauchery, drunkeness, drugs, and dangerous sex. It reminds me a lot of college.

*sniffle*

Master Slave: You should definitely check out The Dark Tower series. I have read it twice. It is an amazing story. Pick up the first book, The Gunslinger. It's a great story in itself. My guess is that you will want more after you read it.
