The Vampire Lestat, great and powerful book. I`m in love with it, of course, considering I always fall for those horror/vampire stories, ^^.


Last good book of that series in my oppinion. Queen of the Damned was garbage (book and movie).


Agreed. The Vampire Lestat was good. But I couldn't bring myself to read any more Vampire Chronicles after Queen of the Damned because it sucked so badly, and I was afraid of having to go through that again. (Once I start a book, I must finish it, even if I don't like it. It's a sort of OCD of mine..)

Last thing I finished was "The Art of Systems Thinking" by Joseph O'Connor and Ian McDermott.

It was actually because of an essay I wrote about him that I was accepted to my dream college. ^_^;

Annabel Lee is an excellent poem, but my favorite is either Eldorado or The City in the Sea.

Currently listening to the first and reading another.

Nightfall, by Isaac Asimov & Robert Silverberg. Well known science fiction story. Has to do a world ending type thing, some religious/science issues.

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.

I like it... however it seems to lack the flow that Slaughterhouse 5 had. And that book had... a very odd type of flow. In this case, CC has a more linear narrative, but it seems to be less of a part of the story than Sh5's narrative, which was alive, random, and pointless.

Vonnegut readers might understand what I mean. The story seems to lack something because of the narrative. The black humour and symbolism are all Vonnegut-ty and wonderful, though.

Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.


Have you ever read Breakfast of Champions? I've been meaning to read it for a while now, but can't see to find anyone who's read it that can give me their opinion on it.

I'll get back to you on that one. I'm probably going to read all of Vonnegut's writings eventually. He is an amazing writer. His words are philosophical and, frankly, they make me feel every emotion possible when I read his books.

As an aside, I think it is amazing he is still alive. Apparently so does he.
