What are you reading? / What did you read last?

This is a discussion on What are you reading? / What did you read last? within the Books forums, part of the Everything But Cigars category; I have started reading Gone with the Wind. It is quite an undertaking....

    Read a book off the "hot titles" shelf at the library for some easy reading... "The Last Days of Ptolemy Grey."

    It was touted as "a masterful, moving novel about age, memory, and family from one of the true literary icons of our time." I found it lackluster in plot and depth, and an uncomfortable clash of science fiction and the African-American struggle. I also found it ultimately hopeless, as the final triumph of the protagonist is merely to rediscover a stash of money which will secure the financial well-being of his heirs. Through the veneer of "a masterful, moving novel about age, memory, and family," the author merely tells the same, tired, false tale of wealth being the ultimate solution to life's problems.

    The book reminded me a bit of Kazuo Ishiguru's novels in it's attempt to be haunting, and in it's attempt to deal with memory, but Ishiguru does it much better, and much more honestly.

    currently reading 'Greener than you think' about a salesman who finds a product mean for corn/wheat and applies it to lawns and suffers the consequences... In sci-fi fashion. It's pretty witty and an interesting read so far. has some good lessons on commercialism. i have it on my kindle, it was written in the 1940s i believe.

Masterful at making you want to keep reading, terrible at wrapping up a book so you feel there was an ending to that section of the story. I think if he could have gotten someone to do it he would have written like a 5000 page book to fit it all under one roof. He probably makes a lot more money this way anyways.
    About 1/3 of the way through the first book now and I'm really enjoying it. The only problem I have is keeping up with all the characters. I'm glad he has an appendix at the back describing who everyone is.

    The Gunslinger. First book in King's The Dark Tower series. I've never been really interested in King's books, but I started this based on some recommendation from here and a couple friend. So far I'm really enjoying it and would recommend it.

    I finished Path of the Exile: Warrior and went onto Path of the Farseer, now I'm on a book series (******* comes next) that is from a different author that has to do about the Dark Eldar with the same "Path of" style.

    I kind of prefer the 3 outlooks style that the other author had for this Warhammer series.
