What book are you reading now/have finished?
In terms of book or literature threads, the only time I ever hear about anybody reading anything, it goes in the occasionally posted in "Good Books" thread. Thus, I have created this thread.
Very simply, what book are you currently reading now and what do you think of it so far?
My dad recently got me this book after I indirectly heard of it's existence through Scrym. I learned of it after hearing about H.H. Holmes from the worst people in history episode. The book in question is Erik Larson's "Devil in the White City". I just picked it up and the opening lines just hooked me immediately. I cannot wait to see what Larson has done with this...
Also on my bedstand is a book about artificial intelligence that is called, (gasp!) "Artificial Intelligence". It's a textbook, so that's all I should really have to say about that.
The book has deep homage. It edges into being the Hyperion sequel a little, but seems to ground itself in the philosophy and eloquence that made the first three so amazing. I will reserve the judgement of my own Eye until the series is complete.
The movie was really great, so I thought I'd give the book a shot.
I need to read the Wildcard novels after this. Has anyone else read those books?
This is the third time I've read this book. I don't know why I like it so much.
