Just finished "her fearfull symmetry", the new novel by "the time traveller's wife" author Audrey Niffenegger. Didn't like it very much. Kept reading it because I wanted to see if it got any better, but no... it didn't.
Before that, I read the classic on schizophrenia: "I never promised you a Rosegarden" by Hannah Green. I quite liked that one and found quite some simularities with my mum's behaviour, only she has Alzheimer.
Schizophrenia is curable, Alzheimer not unfortunatly. :(
I'm reading a few books at the moment. Jumping around is always fun.
I just started The Eye of the World, the first book in Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. The maps in the book are not helpful, unfortunately, but Jordan's narrative completely makes up for that. So far, so good!
I'm also finishing Terry Goodkind's The Stone of Tears, the second book in the Sword of Truth series. Now here's a romance that works well. For all you people worrying about how much the Twilight movies suck in comparison to Meyer's books, it does not compare to how much the Legend of the Seeker TV series butchered Goodkind's books. What a damn shame. Found out about this series through a friend who told me about how utterly violent it gets. Yep, it's definitely not something for minors to read.
But right now, while I'm munching on ice cream and typing this wall of text up, I'm reading Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy. In my defense, I didn't pick this up because it was a vampire story; I was browsing Amazon when I saw a book with a pretty-looking cover on one of the bestsellers lists. I thought the premise of having two warring factions of vampires pitted against each other pretty interesting, so I checked it out of the library. It's too focused on social scenery for my tastes -- but then again, it is a YA novel -- but other than that, it makes good fluff to read before bedtime.
Ok. I have four of his books, The Da Vinci Code, Angels and Demons, The Digital Fortess, and Deception Point, I dont know if there are more books. I loved Angels and Demons, thats my favorite one of his books.
