It has good reviews and listed in a lot of best book list. It's supposed to be very funny, very sad, very entertaining, very Everything actually...! Lots of my friends are currently reading them.

Jo | 2241 comments Mod
I want to read The Historian. You will have to let me know what you think of it. Also let me know what you think of A Dirty Job!


message 45: by Jim (new)

Jim (jimmaclachlan) I really liked Lonesome Dove, although there is one scene in it that gives me the creeps (snakes!) to this day. Must have been well since it stuck with me so well & it's been a decade or more since I read it. I liked the movie (mini-series?) too.

A Dirty Job was a lot of fun. I can only take so much of that sort of humor, but it was a quick read & interesting.


message 46: by Dean (new)

Dean (cowboys86) | 122 comments I recently bought Lord of the Flies (great read) and Blood Meridian. I really liked The Road, it was a brilliant read so I decided to try out another of Cormac McCarthy's books.

I plan on buying Bram Stoker's Dracula, Gulliver's Travels and The Picture of Dorian Gray at some point over the weekend.


message 47: by Jo (new)

Jo | 2241 comments Mod
I have The Road at home but i haven't got round to reading it yet. Glad to hear you liked it!
