I've just finished reading a really good book, and am halfway through another one. The first book is called Flowers for Algernon. It's a genuinely touching book, and really, really, really, good in my opinion. The second book is the first in a trilogy, and it's called Shadow by K.J. Parker. It's also really good, a unique look on fantasy. Great writing.

I just finished Dreamfall: The Longest Journey too. It's an adventure game for the Xbox and the PC, and it's...it's hard to describe. Definitely a unique and awesome experience, though.

Flowers for algernon... I would say its a good book but being forced to read through it multiple times seems to have worn its effect on me....

Yeah, but it's the type of book even I wouldn't purposefully pick up. Touching, sad, books aren't usually my thing, I just came upon this one by chance.

I see.... anyways on my first readin ym opinion was it was rather ironic and slightly sad. I actually didnt find it very sad I felt more anger to him at the end than sadness. Given a second chance and everything he could have done he didnt.... must not kill him.

Matter of fact the only sad thing for me was algernon dieing... poor bastard never asked for it.

Alas a good book but for now my temporary opinion is "DONT MENTION IT TO ME FOR !3q3542346275467342 YEARS!!!"

Flowers for Algernon was a good book albeit a depressing book. I had to read it in school.


'aside from that I recently read Stephen King's The Stand which is totally badass. I also recently read Into The Wild which is an awesome nonfiction book, I recommend it highly...

Eternal Darkness for the Gamecube. You'd love it Oath (especially since you are a Lovecraft fan).

I really want to play Eternal Darkness, but I haven't been able to get my hands on a copy. And the Gamecube rental of Twilight Princess was out yesterday sad.gif

Fortunately, there may be a chance of me getting a Wii soon.

It isn't going to get any easier anytime soon, so keep on it.

I'm nearing my 50th hour on Twilight Princess. I think I likely have 2 temples/major areas left.

I just saw a movie from...1979 I think. Czechoslovakian or something, called Alice. Weirdest ass movie you'll ever see, but hilarious and brilliant.
