Battle Royale by Koushun Takami. This joint was 624 pages and I finished it in 3 days....in middle school and used it as a book report. It's def a page turner and is violent..♥♥♥♥♥s/teacher were like wtf are you reading when I presented it lol. But I recommend it.

"Battle Royale takes place in an alternate timeline—Japan is a member region of a totalitarian state known as the Republic of Greater East Asia (大東亜共和国 Dai Tōa Kyōwakoku). Under the guise of a "study trip," a group of students from Shiroiwa Junior High School (城岩中学校 Shiroiwa Chūgakkō) in the fictional town of Shiroiwa (Kagawa Prefecture) are gassed on a bus. They awaken in the Okishima Island School on Okishima, an isolated, evacuated island southwest of Shodoshima, also in Kagawa Prefecture. They learn that they have been placed in an event called the Program. Officially a military research project, it is a means of terrorizing the population, of creating such paranoia as to make organized insurgency impossible. In the manga, the economy collapsed, and the government created the Program to revitalize it. According to the rules, every year since 1947, 42 third-year high school classes are isolated, and each class is required to fight to the death until one student remains. Their movements are tracked by metal collars, later identified as Model Guadalcanal No. 22, around their necks, which contain tracking and listening devices; if any student should attempt to escape the Program, or enter declared forbidden zones, a bomb will be detonated in the collar, killing the wearer. If no student dies in any 24 hour period, all collars will be detonated simultaneously."

I'm halfway through Infinite Jest and decided to take a break. Anybody actually finish it (1100 pages)?

I'm staring up Siddhartha tonight, hope to have it finished in the next few days.

I've been reading 'Women' by Bukowoski. Not what I expected (in a good way). Definitely a good read.

I've read Women, Ham on Rye, and Post Office and they are all really good/funny books.

Lately I've been back in a Cormac McCarthy phase. I've read his border trilogy, No Country for Old Men, The Road, just finished Child of God and about to start The Orchard Keeper.

After that I might order the first 4 books from Stephen King's Dark Tower series, they sell a set on Amazon.

i'm the best mayne, i deed it

agreed, all great books... Ham On Rye tops the list for me though

two books i'd like to suggest for anybody who might be into some non-fiction are:

Howard Zinn - A People's History of the USA (IMO this should be required reading for students in America's high schools)


John Perkins - Confessions of an Economic Hitman

bump.
a lot of good books being mentioned in the last few posts. shit i've read while on winter break.

classic bukowski. crude, dark, but brutally honest. when i was reading this i feel like i was reading a long tumblr post of some old dude who happened to get laid... a lot.

if you're a fan of anthony bourdain's sharp personality and writing style this is a must read. i personally think it's much better than kitchen confidential.

required reading. definitely a book everyone needs to read at least once. the ending is a bit underwhelming though.

alright, if you read the 48 laws of power and enjoyed it (if you actually read it, how the fuck could you not think it was a valuable book), BUY THIS FUCKING BOOK. nuff said.
