Here you can post great books that you have read and want to recommend to other members on metalstorm.

Please Dont just post the name of book, by add who wrote the book and a genre of the book as well as a short description on it and your opinion.
A picture would be nice too.
Thx.

Il start with a book im reading now
"Life of Pi" by Yann Martel.

[img=http://img1.imageshack.us/img1/4913/lifeofpiex1kl.th.jpg]

A preposterous but utterly enchanting story about a young Indian boy adrift in a lifeboat with his good friend, a Bengal tiger, and some other zoo animals.
A story about survival, and as one charecter claims, it can make you belive in god.
Thewirting is this fisction book simple and excellent.
The book is funny and smart (and youl also find a few metal band names there )


Enjoy.

Try this one. I'm pretty sure Anal Cunt wrote it:

I am a horror novel fanatic, but lately i thought i would have a change. I just finished the hobbit which was alright, much easier read than LOTR, and not dragged the fuck out like LOTR either, though it sounds like they done that with the hobbit movies.

And at the moment i am half way through Brian Baits "The way of the wyrd" very interesting so far

of course that is the case since Tolkien wrote The Hobbit as a children's book for his granddaughter to enjoy

yeah i definitely got the feeling it was a book for young children, but i think that actually helped out as there wasn't lots of long boring chapters about meetings on what they were about to do, and explaining the history of the land, the crappy descriptions of the land and all that boring irrelevant shit in LOTR

I am reading "Deepness In The Sky" by Vernon Vinge...one of the best sci-fi novels i know - NOTfaster-than-light ships, clash of two human space-traveling cultures, arachnid-like alien society, a solar system where the sun lights on and off in cycles...it also won HUGO in 1999, so its not just me

or page long descriptions of what the doors look like that they are about to open. LotR would have been a lot better had Tolkien got to the point more often. It could easily fit into 1 to 1.5 volumes instead of the three. Most of the stuff he writes about is indeed totally irrelevant for LotR

Got a copy of Only Death Is Real: An Illustrated History of Hellhammer and Early Celtic Frost 1981-1985 the other day and I'm quite enjoying it. Still at the beginning but the level of detail is really nice !

Oh it's a photo book. I just realized it existed and made a question. Well, if the photos are great then, possibly, I'll get it too.

I went for a short trip with my friends, bivouacked for 2.5 days and read this incredible book. I am almost finishing it up.

The saddest and at the same time great thing that you can read in a cloudy day is probably the biography of Emily Bronte, damn.

Started reading Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen series.

It's the first fantasy novel I've read in years, but so far it's great. A very ambitious and rich world (maybe too ambitious?), very well written.

I've been doubting whether to start the Malazan Book of the Fallen series.... Mainly coz I'm scarred I get too sucked in by it, and considering how many books there are, the consequences wouldn't be positive Already happened with the Song of Ice and Fire, but I did have a lot of free time at that moment and the series is considerably shorter so.... Must resist buying the first book

Bernard Cornwell - The Last Kingdom

Really good when he was growing up with the Danes, then kind of sped through the last era a bit too fast. Looking forward to the following books.

I already finished Moby-Dick, this one is well-known so I guess there is no need to say that it is about voyage of Ahab and his crews for hunting the big white whale named Moby-Dick, but reading the whole book has its own privileges,
and I'm not finished with Sound and Fury by William Faulkner yet, almost I reached middle of the book where Jason starts talking,
soon I should start Scarlet Letter.

Great series. Uhtred is a pretty badass character. Cornwell does a great job weaving his really cool fictitious characters into a fairly accurate history of Anglo-Saxon England.

yeah i just finished "the pale horseman" and am just about to go to the library to get "lords of the north"
I never knew the story of king Alfred, pretty amazing stuff. I'm always amazed when i read the bit at the end how much of the story and the events actually happened
