I've been reading this for the past couple of months now, nearing the end:
It's widely regarded as one of the behemoths of literature, based mostly on it's tree-killing length of 1100 pages, but in reality it's far from a daunting read for the most part. Every page is highly entertaining, hilarious or full of intelligent insight, and it makes this piece of fiction dangerously addictive. David Foster Wallace may have been one of the wittiest motherfuckers who ever lived.
I'd recommend reading some of his non-fiction essays as well, they're nothing short of genius.
Your next door neibour is a dragon.
Brilliant book. Re-reading it. It is by Zack Parsons who is a writer for SomethingAwful.com
My favorite series is "Artemis Fowl" by Eoin Colfer. But, my favorite author is Chuck Palahniuk. Books like "Choke", "Lullaby", "Survivor" and "Fight Club" were instant classics to me. (No, I'm not a fan of the movies. I disliked them VERY much. [Choke & Fight Club]) I'm also a huge Christopher Moore fan as well. "Lamb: The Gospel According To Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal" is hands down the funniest book I've ever read!
Currently reading Rey Mysterio's biography "Behind the Mask". One of my favorite wrestler's biographies probably has to be Eddie Guerrero's...just an awesome read from beginning to end.
I'm currently on the last Alex Rider book by Anthony Horowitz. I know, I may be a bit old for those books, but considering the first one came out 10 years ago or so, I wasn't going to miss the ending!! And they are great books to read whatever your age. Horowitz is a fantastic author.
