Just finished a couple of Phillip K. Dick's: Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said and The Man in the High Castle. Also I read a collection of short stories by Kawabata, Japan's first Nobel Prize winner for Literature.

I just finished reading Perfume, not having seen the film yet. I'm gonna rent the movie soon, quite interested in seeing if they were able to catch the atmosphere of the book. I really enjoyed reading it, didn't think I'd like it that much. It drags a bit in the middle and sometimes there's just too much talk about smells, but apart from that I have no problems with the book.

R.I.P.

In response to his death, I decided I'd read a book by this man, not having heard of him yet. So I read Slaughterhouse Five, which seemed to be considered as his magnum opus. The book only took me about two days to read, which I find to be quite fast, but the seven hour bus ride of yesterday will probably have something to do with it. I enjoyed the book, especially liked how he mixes serious stuff with humour and science-fiction with history. I don't think it's as great as some people make it out to be, but it was a great read nonetheless.

So I said some time ago I would read L'├ętranger (The Stranger) by Albert Camus. Now I've finally read it seeing as my oral exam for French is coming closer (next month). I finished this book quite fast as well, normally I don't read that fast in French, seeing as it's only my third language, but I seem to have gotten better in understanding the language. As to the book, I found it to be quite good. The first part seems like it doesn't lead to anything, but once in the second part it does make for a nice build-up. I'm not too fond of the ideas of Albert Camus' absurdism, but then again, I've never been too fond of existentialist thinking. I do enjoy reading them though, it just doesn't really stroke with my own ideas.

"Abbie Hoffman: American Rebel" - Marty Jezer

The problem I'm having with this book is the author's random shots at individuals from this time period. I'm fine with him not being objective about Hoffman, but his cheap shots at J. Edgar Hoover and others makes this book feel inaccurate.

I'm reading Rant by Palahniuk...it is very innovative the way he develops characters through them speaking of the main character or experiences with the main character but rarely of another character. This way it develops the main character as well as the characters commenting on the main character...i'm trying not to give too much away. This dude is an excellent writer.
