Nymphadora,

I used to read Steven King. I especially loved The Stand, Cujo, Pet Sematary and some others of his earlier efforts. I tried to read Insomnia but found that it just went on and on endlessly about details. For instance, at one point he was searching through a closet for something and it went on for 5 pages describing the things he came across as he searched. And that's what I have against his newer books. Can you tell me anything about Everythings Eventual? I would like to get back into Steven King if his writing has changed back to the way it was earlier in his career. Thanks, KerryO

***** All of you should read The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. God, I'm obsessed! I've been obsessed with it for years. They're all huge books. Great read! And there's alot to talk about. *sigh* there are excerpts. I read it occasionally because each book takes 2.5 years to complete! And so many people are raving mad! There are fan lists, discussions boards just for the books. And sites dedicated to it.

official site: http://www.cco.caltech.edu/~gatti/g...n/gabaldon.html
excerpts: http://www.cco.caltech.edu/~gatti/g...s/excerpts.html


I'm getting mad! THer next book is ALMOST out but no publication date and I have to wait a few more months after that before it gets to the library!!! argh!

Nicolas Sparks is my absolute favorite. I still haven't read
"Three Weeks With My Brother" but I understand it is really good. Have you read "The Guardian"? I loved that one and of course "Message In A Bottle". As my husband calls it "the total chick flick." The only one I didn't like was the one with "Walk" in the tital. A girl had leukemia. That one was just a little sappy.

Three Weeks is an amazing book. Only Nicholas Sparks could write a memoir- instead of a novel- and still get me so emotionally wrapped up in it that I cry. I did love The Guardian and Message, however I didn't like the movie to Message at all. I suppose if I would have watched the movie before I read the book, it would have been alright, but... no. Heh. Didn't like the movie at all. I did like the Walk To Remember and The Notebook movies though, although of course, the books were better. But isn't that how it always is?

I stayed up all night reading "Inside the Kingdom" by Carmen
Bin Laden. I'm sure everyone knows she is Osama's sister-in-law. He really isn't mentioned too often in the book. What is discussed is the complete domination of women by men in Saudi Arabia. It would be a truly horrible existence. It seems the
domination there of women is more severe than it was in Afghanistan by the Talaban. Carmen Bin Laden is the kind of woman they don't like in Saudi Arabia.......liberated, educated,
creative, free thinking and unafraid. Actually, she was afraid for her 3 daughters. She didn't want them to be stunted in their intelletual growth, but she didn't want them to be too liberal in their thinking either. Women are legally murdered in Saudi Arabia for the crime of having their own thoughts. Enlightening book. I highly recommend it. Prepare to get pissed off.
