Talk about books that aren't really big enough to have their own topic.

That's exactly what happens to me in every English thing I do. A 3 page story turns out to be 7, and I cleverly disguise it in the world of Size 9 font... Yeah, very inconspicuous.

Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank. It's a story of what would happen if a nuclear holocaust occured. This book changed my life. The story takes a bit to get into, but it is frighteningly realistic that you seriously consider building yourself a bomb shelter. Anyways, if you get the chance, you should read it. A new edition was printed in 2005, so it shouldn't be hard to find if you're interested.

READ THIS. seriously.

that reminds me of a book i read once called The Goodness Gene

its about a futuristic world that is totally realistic and then you find out something that blows your mind completely
not only can this world happen and its frightening how realistic it is
you also see how freaking reminiscent it is of the past
and how evil things can really become @.@

awesome and scary, i sat in shock for a lil while at the twist

Anyone read any Kurt Vonnegut or Chuck Palahniuk?

Vonnegut is hilarious. Most people know of him for Slaughter-house Five, which contains one of my favorite quotes of alllll time:

"It's just an illusion we have here on Earth that one moment follows another."

it happens to be about aliens, but not really at the same time. My personal favorite of his is called Hocus Pocus...it's about a guy who happens to be a Vietnam veteran, who now teaches at a university that is currently being held under seige. At home, his wife and her mother are completely insane, and locked up inside the house. It can get a bit graphic when he talks about the war, but so much of the book is hilarious and ironic. Also some very good quotage from there.


and then there's Chuck Palahniuk. He's the guy that wrote Fight Club. It's depressing how many people don't realize that it was a really good book before it became a movie. He's on the graphic side too, everything is pretty violent, but he writes it as that's the reason for the downfall of our world. The characters are so much deeper in the book, and easier to understand. The movie becomes something else entirely once you've read the book. A lot of his short stories are good as well.

I DO NOT RECCOMEND THE BOOK HAUNTED. I couldn't even finish it, it's that disgusting. But other than that, he's pretty unique as an author.

i tried to read 'Lullaby' and couldnt do it
Fight Club is the only book of his i would probably read all the way through

but yeah
he had some interesting little bits in Lullaby
its about a lullaby song that kills people when you think it in their general direction
its a very cool idea
just the way it was written and the characters, i couldnt stomach it

but yeah - the interesting tidbits were well worth the read of the first couple of chapters
something about putting a hole in someones head and putting cleaner fluid in there to make them your own personal zombie (not gonna tell you what for)
and then something about a journalist simulation he went through about a baby dying by choking on an ornament and the morale of asking the parents what color it was (risking looking like an asshole or doing what you need to do to get the story done)

i can't even tell you about the first chapter of Haunted without feeling slightly nauseous. When he went on tour and read it to promote the book, men FAINTED at it. And I stress that it's MEN who fainted.

he's so gruesome, and yet I can't avert my eyes.

Looking for Alaska by John Green.

i thought he was funny when i saw that video on Scott's blog, and the book sounded interesting.
it was really cheap when i went to target today, so i bought it.


and i am only 20 pages into it, and already laughing like crazy.

it probably helps that one of the characters reminds me of me, but the book is ridiculously hilarious. i can't stop giggling.

Alaska reminded me of this girl i knew once named Morgan
the one from that Book of Sand fic i wrote
she was wild and crazy as well
and when i knew her i guess i was like the main character
quiet and shy
and after i met her i was wild and crazy as well
not as ya know...promiscous as her, or as dangerous with drugs and drinking and stuff - but she did break me out of my shell a little

it was cool having her around
and i miss her greatly
my dad is amazed that i still remember her
but i just tell him its impossible to forget

Clinical Chemistry.
Hmm. Lets try again then, shall we?

Okay..
Thirteen O'Clock by Enid Blyton.


Who doesn't love Enid Blyton!! We have at least 30 Blyton Books.
Hehehe, what can I say. We are fans of le Enid.

Anybody else like Enid Blyton?

Twilight's Edge...not enough of us have read it for it to have it's own thread yet, but I wanted to talk about it.

While this is not a favorite, I want to pimp it because
a) it was interesting
b) i liked it enough to be all WTF I NEED THE NEXT ONE
c) the author is on here, and that's cool.


I was a tad bit lost at first because a lot of stuff gets thrown at you, but once you have a grip on all of the characters, it makes it a lot more interesting. There were some interesting things about vampires and slayers that I liked a lot, and there's just enough mystery left to leave you wanting to read the next one. And for the most part, the ending is satisfactory because some of the vampires you really hate bite the dust (pun intended, heh heh).

I like Raven, she's sarcastic and she rolls with it, but I really love Janet and Kendra. They have a fun dynamic, and I think Kendra is hilarious.

my only real complaint is that the scene at the end with her sister...not long enough. i wanted more of that.

and i promise to behave myself, and not make said author tell me anything. Shocked promise.

but you guys should definitely pick it up. once the story gets going it becomes eyeball glue.

Said-author peeking in to say that I'm glad you liked the book. Twilight's Edge went through some crazy editing. People who've read early versions of the second book say that it has a different feel than the first, but in a good way, so I hope you'll find it just as interesting.

I forgot to add one of my favorite books on here!

A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb

it's about a spirit...and she falls in love, but it's more complicated than that. it's sad and beautiful, and i read through most of my classes to finish it. I love it even more because it's named after a poem by Emily Dickinson, which sort of relates to the plot.

But I highly reccommend this, if you get the chance.

Never heard of it!

But it sounds fantastic. If it is named after Dickinson, it must be good.
We studied her last year, and some of the poems I had never come across before. They were beautiful!

Tattoo by Jennifer Lynn Barnes was pretty good. It's about four friends who get temporary tattoos that end up giving them powers, and ultimately the responsibility to save the world. The characters really grow on you.

Oh my God! Captain Planet was this crazy awesome cartoon when we were somewhere between the ages of about 4 and 8ish...it was I think about 5 kids that were given rings that controlled an element (earth air wind fire heart (whatever that means)) and when they used them all together it would call Captain Planet who would stop pollution and stuff. it was totally ridiculous.

i have no idea how i remember that. and it had a totally sweet theme song.

*watches it every night at 8 on pay tv.* *ahem*

Yep. It is SWEET AS!
I LOVE IT!

I have my very own ring and Wheeler doll!!!

Kwame = Earth (Africa)
Wheeler = Fire (North America--i like to think he is Canadian, even though he is American.)
Linka = Wind (Eastern Europe)
Gi = Water (Asia)
Ma-Ti (or something) = Heart (South America--lamest talent, but he has an awesome-making monkey!)

Yep. So one day, Gaia (the spirit of earth) is awoken from a long sleep by human activity destroying the planet. Realizing that the damage is extensive, Gaia creates five magic rings, each with the power to control an element of nature and one controlling the extra element, heart. Gaia sends the rings to five chosen youths across the globe: Kwame, Wheeler, Linka, Gi, and Ma-Ti.

These five are dubbed the Planeteers and given the task of defending the Earth in the case of the greatest of disasters and doing their part to keep others from happening. Gaia uses her Planet Vision to discover where the most devastating destruction is occurring and sends the planeteers to help solve the problem.

In situations that the Planeteers cannot handle on their own, they can combine and magnify their powers to summon Captain Planet, who possesses all of their powers magnified, symbolizing that the combined efforts of a team are stronger than its individual parts. Captain Planet only appears in his Captain Planet garb. These are not clothes but elements of the Earth that are integral to his composition. He is able to rearrange his molecular structure to transform himself into the various powers and elements of nature.



Those three paragraphs i found on wiki CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO
i can't remember all that myself... haha.

And the theme song is AWESOME! Best theme song EVER!

*sighs*

I LOVE that show.

Well, the protagonist is Elizabeth Clarry. It's hard to describe her, but she's basically a character that you just love for her wacky side. She's a believable character and you'd be likely to find teenagers out there like her. But Elizabeth is even more fawesome.

Her only real friend is Celia Buckley. They’ve been friends since they were little kids. Celia and Elizabeth are really different: Elizabeth's the independent and strong one, while Celia is a sort of dreamer. Celia runs away from home to join the circus and become a tightrope walker, leaving Elizabeth behind.

Elizabeth's English teacher has started this penpal program with people from a public high school nearby and it's through here that she gets to know Christina. Here, another entire girl is shown. Christina is more outgoing than Celia but she’s also very attentive and giving. Most of the book is a series of letters, notes and postcards. But this is done in a very clever, nice way. Christina helps Elizabeth to come to terms with the changes in her friendship with Celia. The book is really good, though. There’s a lot to it and I think that most people would generally like it.

It should be. The book came out in 2000, but there's other books as old as that in Borders.
