Re: What are you reading now?
Late to this discussion:
I got on a Vonnegut kick recently and re-read Slaughterhouse Five and am reading Cat's Cradle for the first time. I don't know what it is about that man, his quiet humor sometimes just falls right into my wheelhouse.
I'm on somewhat of a fiction revival after several years of almost exclusively non-fiction reading. Catcher in the Rye was the book that took me here. I just bought Calico Joe and 11/22/63.
I genuinely liked The Art of Fielding, although I agree with whoever said the main character began wearing on him. I identified much more strongly with Schwartz.
Steve Jobs was outstanding. I couldn't put it down. I immediately bought Isaacsons's biography of Ben Franklin; haven't started it yet.
The Hunger Games was a typically solid YA fiction novel. The writing was subpar, but the story was really engaging and at times deeply disturbing. Wish I could have said the same for the sequels.
