    Just finished Life of Pi after having it for nearly two months and not even opening it until last week. Loved it, though the ending was almost painful to read. I loved the primacy of survival with the religious overtones.

    The Perks of Being A Wallflower loved it... I give it a 10, and the movie was also great.

    There was a bunch of scenes that weren't in the film that could have made the movie a bit more emotional.

    I've been reading this book.

    THE SACRED SITES BIBLE - a definitive guide to all places spiritual around the world. (by Anthony Taylor). 10 out of 10.

    I am a little bit into Buddhism, religion and spirituality. I learned so much from this book, from holy rocks to caves, to churches, temples....and their background/meaning. I recommend this book to anyone who's into religion/body/mind and spirits. My favorite sections are the temples in Asia, churches in England/Ireland and the native people/sacred rocks in Australia.

    Read Struck by Lightning by Chris Colfer last month and saw the movie. Another book I really enjoyed. I liked how the movie had things the book didn't and vice versa.

    The Absolutist by John Boyne. A terrific read from start to almost finish. On the last 5 pages the author cuts off the book's heart, soul and balls and makes the protagonist into a stereotypical sad gay character that is unfit to live.icon_mad.gif

    last book I read was a re-read of memoirs of a geisha. I give it an 11 I can't out it down, no matter how many times I've read it, but George Orwell 1984 was my last book I read for the firsts time, wow it's intense some people might not be able to get past the beginning,it is slow and complex, but also an 11 outa 10!

    The last book I read was "Silver Linings Playbook". I'd give it an 8. I was surprised how different it was from the movie.

    Life of Pi is one of the next books on my reading list. That and I finally want to get around to reading "A Dance With Dragons" from George RR Martin since I've been on a "Game of Thrones" kick lately

    The Velvet Rage was the last one I fully read. It is a great book, and although I don't agree with all of the book it still helped to give me some great insight and views on life as a gay man.

    It was on my reading list and I made the commitment, so that got me through it. Always loved George Orwell though

    A thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini, a 10 liked it more than the Kite runner.

    The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch (trans. by Lee Chadeayne)

    It's a murder mystery set in 17th century Germany. Children are found murdered, a strange symbol painted on their bodies. And soon enough the accusations of witchcraft start flying.

    His storytelling is solid enough, but Potzsch doesn't really do anything new with the genre. Expect the typical romantic and political subplots as various characters scramble to solve the mystery and/or manipulate the circumstances to their own advantage. Daughter is the first novel in a series, which if Amazon reviews are to be believed, gets weaker and more predictable as it goes on.

    7 out of 10. A fun & entertaining read, but not much else.
