Yeah, the Bachman books were madness. Each one is about 150+ pages long. I read all four in about a week, couldn't put that shit down. It's well worth it. "Rage" is about a kid taking over his classroom with a 9mm and goes onto expose all the kids in the class as all having weaknesses. King actually got questioned by the FBI cause he wrote it when he was 17. It's a mindblowing story. The second one is "The Long Walk", and very well written as well. Basically, a bunch of people have to walk at least 4+ mph until only one survives. You are given rations and thats it, you can't stop or...some of the ways the people die along the walk are crazy. You should buy it for these two alone. "Roadwork" and "Running Man" are good as well, the first about a man who won't let the state build a new highway because it will run right through his house, a lot more interesting than you could imagine...and the second about a game show that executes contestants on live TV :o , a movie was made with Shwarzenegger about it, but the book is better. Definitely peep 'em.

Honestly...

just wondering what kinda stuff ya'll liked back in the day... i went to the library the other day intending to check out some new stuff (which i didn't end up doing 'cos i owed them so much cash) & spent the whole time reading A Light in the Attic and Where the Sidewalk Ends, which was cool... those kinda things are like

WordSearches:Scrabble::Children's Books:Finnegan's Wake.

So i've decided to go tru old skool and pick up the things i used to like when i was little. One i'd defintily reccomend: Maniac Magee, by Jerry Spinelli. It's a book about racism through a runaway kids' eyes... It's a very sweet interpretation of what "is" color. When told that he can't have 'black' friends:

"He kept looking and looking, and the colors he found were gingersnap and light fudge and dark fudge and acorn and butter rum and cinnamon and burnt orange."

Worth checking out someday to read in that inflatable pool u got outside when ur A/C is broke.

So what'd ya'll read when u were lil?

Honesty.

Honestly...

hey se7en- i thought Siddhartha was awesome. i really loved that book. Farenheit 451 was absolutely amazing... you should chek out Ray Bradbury's short story "All Summer in a Day".

http://www.intermed.it/bradbury/Allsummer.htm

if you read it, lemme know what ya think.

There's also this really good Tolstoy short story, called "How Much Land Does a Man Need"

http://www.ccel.org/t/tolstoy/23_tales/htm/vii.iii.htm

it's a little longer than the other one, but when you get to the end, you'll be glad you read it.

honesty.
