Finished 'Revenge of Gaia' the other day. A good read with a very solid pro Nuclear argument.

I like it because people here are probably familiar with some of it
even if they don't know that they are.

Conrad - Heart of Darkness (and other tales).
Lovecraft - At the Mountains of madness
Dante - Divine Comedy

Cormac McCarthy - No Country for Old Men


It's a great read; although McCarthy's style of writing could be described as «no-frills», «back-to-basics», «sparse» or whatever, he does a great job at setting moods and making the reader fell like he's where the action is. The plot is straight-forward enough but fast-paced, and Chigurh has to be one of the baddest motherfuckers ever. The ending... well... not many like it. I loved it.

I just finished Colbert's book. It would be funny to hear him read it, but as text it's pretty weak.

First book I bought. Still not read it.

Last book I read was 'On The Edge: My Story' by Richard Hammond. Which is a misleading title since 3/4 of the book is written by his wife and how his near death experience affected her.
