Underworld is all about style. Trying to explain what it is about is what necessitates mentioning the baseball.

I loved Underworld most, of his stuff. It's like he took all the partially-formed ideas of his other works and built them into a unifying whole. Not nearly as wank as many other long-books I've read (see also: Infinite Jest).

Last few for me have been re-reads (Crime And Punishment, Foucault's Pendulum and Blood Meridian). Old favourites.

I've just started Augie March. My first Saul Bellow. I can see myself becoming a massive fan.

I read that book, because my grandma told me to
and then two days later all that shit came out about how he made it all up
and I felt like I wasted my life...

It's a so bad that it's good book for me

The keyboard player from the Doors wrote a book called "Light My Fire" that I felt the same about

I love how he repeats every sentence three times to fully enunciate his PAIN!

Yawn. Trust "that one" to do that to the thread.

I'm now officially an utter bitch for Saul Bellow.

I suck at interface. This is what I meant, after I read the whole thread.

Pretty damn good. Seems like a run-of-the-mill picaresque coming of age story, but so much more.

I was looking for Herzog at the store, but they only had Augie. Apparently Bellow's talents really started to come out post-Augie March, so I'm probably going to read them in that order.

The Toy Collector ~ James Gunn.

This was pretty fuckin good. Polished it off in a few hours too, which is always good for the ego.

I'm almost finished Cistern Tawdry by Eckhard Gerdes. Wow. I've almost actually gotten through a Gerdes novel and understood more than half of it.

You can't begin to understand how good that feels.

Was it good? I..uh...think so? only 4 more to go!

Well. What have you read?

The Call of Cthulhu is a must. There is also a decent filmatic adaption made in 2006 or so. A silent film in black and white, very good.

The dreams in the witch house is also very good. And there is also a very good film based on this short story. One of the best filmatic adaptions in my opinion.

Pickman's model. Very spooky.

The statement of Randolph Carter. Good one.

The Dunwich horror. Another one of his best works.

These are classics, but there are some lesser known works who are great too. I like most of his work, but there are a few exceptions.
