Let me ask you a question?

What was the last book you read?

My answer?

I’m currently reading did you hear me crying by cassie moore. Its a true memoir about an irish child abuse survivor. Its good, I am liking it, I’m not all the way through it yet though.

  1. I’m most of the way through Tim Power’s “Earthquake Weather” It’s the third book in the “Fault Lines” trilogy. All three books are about being the Fisher King (spiritual king of the western world) Lots of modern day fantasy. Playing poker with tarot cards (very dangerous in these books) “eating” ghosts, a zombie who knows he’s dead, but continues his work as the landlord of an apartment complex, lots of Dionysus (god of the grape harvest and wine), a major character who has DID (fairly tastefully done, with liberties taken as this is a fantasy novel), sacred wine that causes forgiveness, including amnesia, of anything you regret, a young man who was raised in a Skinner Box, in an attempt by his father to create the best poker player ever (did not work!), the ghost of a woman who ran the far west end of the Underground Railway, and so many other pieces of fantasy that it’s impossible to name them all. The three books are “Last Call”, “Expiration Date”, and “Earthquake Weather” I read these when they first came out in the middle ’90s, I really enjoy anything by Tim Powers, except for “The Stress of Her Regard”

  2. When I’m done with “Earthquake Weather”, I’m going to reread “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” by Robert Pirsig. As the author notes, there’s no zen to speak of and only a little on motorcycle maintenance. It’s told as a story of a cross-country motorcycle trip with some friends and his son. The two biggest subjects are western philosophy and his recovery from *brutal* early ’60s ECT court-ordered after a bad psychotic break. I read it years ago and liked it then. In some circles, it’s considered *very deep* philosophy, but it’s not *that* earth-shattering. A good read though…

  3. I just finished “Flowers In The Attic” by Virginia C. Andrews – the first book in the Dollanganger series, I liked it overall, however had lots of mixed feelings about it, it’s an interesting book though.

  4. “The Shepherds crown” it’s a Terry Pratchett Discworld book, his last one and I’m taking my time with it because the idea that there’s no more coming is so sad!
