Help: what to read


the last book i read was the kite runner, which i loved; they're making a movie of it - coming out in November of this year, yey !

and now i'm reading Freakonomics, which is amusing.

i'm almost done with it so i need a recommendation on what to read next, pronto !

ideas ?

Fiction:
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time
Bag of Bones
The Pilot's Wife

Non-Fiction:
A Short History of Nearly Everything
The World is Flat
Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea

These are off the top of my head. Check out my blog's libraryThing widget for more books if you want :)

Oh Kinan is at it again with all his book preaching.

The fiction he suggested though, is good. As for the non-fiction, well, looooool, he's quite a fanatic when it comes to ridiculous books :P

I suggest you take a break from reading and go over to your nearest store and get an XBOX 360 with Gears of War.

I liked The Kite Runner, but the ending was a bit commercialized wasn't it?

It was a good read though on the whole.

I'll just steal the books they wrote cuz I can't think of anything.

elijah: the ending wasn't really commercial since it wasn't completely ideal; however i have to agree that there were some unrealistic coincidences

Margaret Atwood
Kazuo Ishiguro
Ian MacEwan
Martin Amis
Ayn Rand
giving you solid reasons to sit at home every weekend and to not have to think of what might have been in Dubai.
