Which book are your reading now ? (2)

Postby Chevalier Bayard » Sun 25 Apr, 2004 23:10

After our little histing incidents, following of our readers'topic :D
---------------------------------------

I've finished Le Père Porcher, french translation for Terry Pratchett's Hogfather.

Image

I've found the 20th book of the Discworld as funny as the others. I'm always amazed to see Terry Pratchett is still not suffering of a lach of inspiration, far from that :D

--

I'm now currently reading Xenocide, third book of The Ender Wiggin Saga by Orson Scott Card.

Image

I'm not very far in my reading yet but it starts well and I hope it will be as great as the 2 former ones :)

Finished both Orson Scott Card's Children Of The Mind (4th book of The Ender Wiggin Saga) and John Fante's Wait Until Spring, Bandini.

Image Image

I've read both translated in french.

The first one was still very good and this saga is really full of ideas and surprises come in every books even if I've started to wanted to go on something else.

That's why I've finally read Wait Until Spring, Bandini which was not an SF bool and also which I was looking for since a long time but was unable to remember the name of the author (Ithil has helped me when I've phoned her with my cellular from the bookstore :D). I wanted to read this one as, some of you migh know, Bandini is my lastname and often people were talking to me about this book (or the movie) when they heard my name. Now I'll be able to say "yes I've read it" :D

And I've also found it was a very good book and recognize indeed some of the "italian spirit" which I still can find in my multicultural family ;)

Now I have to see the movie :D

For tomorrow morning in the sub, I already have in my bag, Dune House Atreides by Brian Herbert (Frank Herbert's son) & Kevin J. Anderson which is supposed to be a prequel to Frank Herbert's Dune.

For now I find it to be the best Tom Clancy's book I've read with The Sum Of All Fear (forget about the crappy movie and read the book ! ;))

Lol, at any one time I have bookmarks in at least 8 books, which at the moment still includes Rainbow Six :D

Just finished Star Wars: Dark Force Rising, moving back onto The Da Vinci Code, perhaps then i'll return to finish 'Round Ireland With A Fridge', then maybe 'The Last Command' (follow up to Dark Force Rising) and maybe i'll get back to Rainbow Six after that! :D

*Phew!* ;)
