Just finished The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, just started Anthem, with Atlas Shrugged and The Virtue of Selfishness(philosophy) waiting.

Also reading A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby and I Am America(And So Can You!) by Stephen Colbert.

I enjoyed the book too, however found the end kind of odd, 'rushed' and didn't quite fit properly. The endings still go though.

A friend of mine recently read The Long Walk(novelette), think I may pick it up soon.

I really disliked the book as well. The story however was one of my favorites, but similar to you I can't stand Dicken's style.

My friend has read most of Rand's works and I plan to start reading them when school slows down.

Has anyone read it? I heard it's pretty good. I'm going to be doing a survival course and I have to survive on my own for a few days after an introduction and I might read it while I'm by myself doing nothing if they let me.
I have the SAS Mental Endurance Handbook. I enjoy it a lot but the guy who writes it wasnt in the SAS so he tends to misconstrue his facts occasionally.

Is it the same author? Either way I'll probably still pick it up. I hear it's one of the better survival books.

I skim-read it and still got 90% via a massive amount of bull****ting my way through the final essay. Honestly, I was bored after the first sentence and it never got exciting. The only thing that kept me going was how ugly my English teacher was. Her eyes were sunken back into her head, her hands were webbed with green and blue veins. She looked like a goul and when I read the book I totally pictured her as Miss. Havisham. It made it somewhat entertaining.

I just finished Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson a few days (I highly recommend it ) and now I'm about half way through Rant by Chuck Palahniuk.
I'm thinking of picking up The Zombie Survival Guide by Max Brooks and/or Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson next.

bam wannabe has achieved Level 1 in PbNation Pursuit
just finished I Am Legend. God, that book was so much better than the movie.
getting back on topic;
i picked up Choke a while back, and got half way through it. maybe i'll finish that before buying another book.

buuut i really want to read A Practical Guide to Racism. no, it's not a white power book or anything like that. it covers all races, and gives a humurous look at them all. there's even a chapter on Merpeople (yes, mermaids.)
on the back was a quote that made me buy it,
"As everyone knows, there's only one thing that can end racism: laughter. Or five. This book is a ready source of both. Read it with someone you hate."
-Jon Stewart
