A Few in the past month

Posted to What Are You Reading?

After reading On the Road (Jack Kerouac) for the third time again (my favorite book to date.) Others I've read recently:

"1984" - George Orwell - Preety Good Sci-Fi Negatopian Read.

"Animal Farm" - George Orwell - Preety Good as well, a little Communistic metaphore, fun.

"The Old Man and the Sea" - Ernest Hemingway - I though this was really great. Very simple, short, and moving.

"Naked Lunch" - William S. Burroughs (1959) - A little disapointed, too avant garde for me.

"Love in the time of Cholera" - Gabriel Garcia Marquez (1988) - Great love story without being sappy, a good read.

Right now I'm halfway through Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, which is very good so far, and I hear the ending is dynamite!
