helo sakurasan! yes i have read a Matter of Honour, and Not a Penny more Not a Penny Less. I love both! but prefered the 2nd one, its really creative and exciting how the 4 managed to get back every cent they were owed, and through hilarious means sometimes. my favourite was the fake painting, so many things could go wrong!!! and the ending! i sorta suspected it, but it still has an unexpected twist which was so like his style.
he caught my attention with his collection of short stories "A Twist in the Tale".
yes i finished the Curious Incident. you are right its refreshing and the 1st person narrative make you feel like you are reading through his eyes, coz its like his diary. Mark Haddon used to work with autistic children, thats why he has an indepth understanding of how they are like. fantastic portrayal isn't it?
Avid reader, me not reading anything now. but I have an unread book Far from the Madding Crowd in my drawer, not sure whether to start. Hey the ppl here are really avid readers!!! so many books! i really wana go and check out your charles de lint books soon..... no time now...
Hey I like watching LOST! its fantastic isn't it? We thought of downloading the whole series to complete it hahahah! but if the book comes out, it wun be as nice I suppose? Usually movies that based on books are inferior to the books e.g. Harry Potter. but books that are based on movies are not as good as the show?
One author's books that I have faithfully completed is Stephen King. Love his style, and how he can weave stories and plots that are so unique, and his words could keep me intrigued through just one single plot or scene. Like his sense of horror, not purely demons and monsters, but evils that lingers on your mind long after you read them...... i have read EVERY one of his novels and short stories, even the web-based one Riding the Bullet. only one i have not read is the non-fiction of his autobiography.."In Writing"
hey ppl, there's this detective series by this author, i forgot the name, i think patricia cornwell or something....thnk i spelt the surname wrong. i find her lead character, which is one black detective, quite boring. the whole story will be about him trying to find clues and piecing the whole puzzle together, and a lot about his thoughts and stuff. but at the end of the day, it isn't him who solve the mystery, but always something that happened that just pieces everything together. i din sense any pure stroke of genius on his part to crack the case....and it seems the same for the 2-3 books i read by her, of the same lead character. anyone feel the same?
