Just started: Anthony Burgess' Napoleon Symphony. Looks intriguing, not sure what to expect.

I've been reading this over breakfast and usually some Sophocles in the half hour before I go to bed.

How do you like it? It's been a while since I read it, but I still have quite good memories of it. Might be my favourite Rushdie novel (for some reason I can't finish Midnight's Children, I still liked Shalimar the Clown a lot, though.

I'm enjoying it immensely. Rushdie's writing is beautiful, and there's a fantastic magic realist element to the plot. I can see why it would offend certain Muslims, though...

Just finished Discipline and Punish - Foucault was a genius.

Now, on to some Edgar Allan Poe. It's not quite as good as I thought it would be.

Just finished Atlas Shrugged. Amazing book Smiley

no.  say whatever you want about the 'theme', she is a formally terrible writer.  read some real literature.
I thought her writing was "ok". Keep in mind, I am only a 9th grader who has not read anything really amazing besides a few Orwell books and a bunch of Ron Paul/Barry Goldwater books.

Seriously, my friend, read some George Eliot or Alexander Pushkin and you'll realize that Atlas Shrugged is an egregious waste of paper. Take my word for it: I've read Atlas Shrugged three times.

My deepest condolences

I'll ignore your opinions on Tolstoy, thank you very much, Mr. "that's the end of North American literature".
