Don't know if it's any good, because I haven't got past the first chapter yet.

Finished it. Pretty decent, all told, I suppose.

Heard of them. Never read them.
Apparently there's a television series.
Haven't seen it either.

I recently finished Flowers for Algernon. A fascinating book.
I'm currently re-reading it to look for things I missed; critical reading and whatnot.

Heard of it.

I'm not very good at that "critical reading" business though.
I tend to just read them and that's it.

I'm reading Pot, by Nejc Zaplotnik, it's his autobiography, for those of you who don't know him (that would be everyone), he was an alpinist and a with this work a writer, the first Slovene on mt. Everest.

Must say it's an excellent book.

My favorite book is Starship Troopers.
Right now I am reading Jurassic Park.
I hate the book Dicey's Song.

We read a shorter version of that in class, and also watched the movie which was based on it (Charly). It's so sad.
