It's a very interesting book, now I'm Reading Angels and Demons, also by Dan Brown. It's very similar to the Da Vinci Code.

@ cerebus: I couldn´t sleep until I finished reading this book. I really liked it, so it´s one of my favs :wink:
@Daeron: The Discworld Books are so funny. I don´t know how Pratchett is able to write books that make the reader cry because of laughter. I´m totally addicted to these books and always trying to find the ones I haven´t read yet. Does Death speak in capital letters in the other languages? In German he does. And when I think of the magician Ricewind, I could start laughing at once. Or the suitcase in "The Light Phantastic"... :green: I have to stop thinking about it, or I will never stop laughing. Do you mean the one where Death is searching for a descendant? Yeeeeeah, that book is great. Like all the others.
Binky is also the German name of the horse btw

In Dutch and English he does, probably the same for other languages.

In Dutch it's practically the same: Binkie

Hehe, Discworld rules! :green:

Then you will read it again and again I'm sure...As I do.
It's so ... touching.
Although it's not a happy one at all.

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY.
IGNORANCE IS STRENGH.
WAR IS PEACE.

...and I dunno how much 2 + 2 is...

OK, here another one:
Stanislav Lem : Solaris
The book is very atmospheric... I didn't see any of the films but people who did say I'm lucky :-?


Well, i saw the movie with George Clooney, not the russian one, and against opinions i´ve heard its a great one, the soundtrack´s just awesome and it takes you somewhere, good atmosphere. Now i feel like reading the book :)

Ok... my books:
1. Steppenwolf (Herman Hesse)
2. 1984 (George Orwell)
3. Brave New World (Aldous Huxley)
4. Contact (Carl Sagan)
5. The opened veins of Latin America (Eduardo Galeano)
6. The Gulag Archipelago (Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn)
7. Spaces of Hope (David Harvey)
8. Women Who Run With The Wolves (Clarissa Pinkola)

Those are the most remarkable right now... if i go on ill take entire pages, I love also poetry and the writings of Anne Rice, García Márquez, Sabines, books about Geography (my major), plus a looooong etc :flower:

We were reading it for old Greek. Quite boring. Is it more interesting in another language? (Although I don't know in which language you're reading it of course).
