• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

    What are you reading? II

    Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut at the moment. I hope to scratch off a few more before I go back to college, maybe The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro or A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James.

    I blazed through Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, Revolver by Marcus Sedgwick, No Country For Old Men by Cormac McCarthy, The Book of Evidence by John Banville and the first 200 pages of The Little Friend by Donna Tartt but it's taken me three and a half weeks to read the subsequent 150...

    What are you reading? II

    I've been having a hard time getting back into reading, so I decided to bridge non-reading and reading with "reading a comic book", which was Grant Morrison's Arkham Asylum. Having finished that trainwreck, I'm about to start Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe.

    Since catching up on A Song of Ice and Fire, I've read The Visible World by Mark Slouka, Everything But You by Yilmaz Odabaşi, The Light Fantastic and Soul Music by Terry Pratchett and The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway, all of which were wonderful. I've also read Oroonoko by Aphra...

    Really, they surprise me the least. It's always someone the protagonists thought was on their side.

    I'm blazing a trail through A Song of Ice and Fire because I'm sick of fucking spoilers on Game of Thrones.

    I actually started it last night. Lawl.

    I'm starting The Bell Jar tonight because my friend went through great ordeals to deliver it to me (not really).

    Only half-way through it, but I just wanted to say that One Hundred Years of Solitude is amaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing.

    What are you reading? II

    I'm just about to start One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez, then I'm going to try and eat Life of Pi and The Great Gatsby, and re-eat The Hobbit, before I watch their respective movies.

    Finished The Butcher Boy and The Sun Also Rises and have since chewed my way through Animal Farm, A Scanner Darkly, The Quiet American, Maus and some other things I can't think of, my brain is too fried. Currently rereading Frankenstein, thinking of starting a dystopia binge once I'm done...

    Finally finished The Inferno, The Colour Out of Space, The Handmaid's Tale, gave up on The Republic, just finished The Ten-Cent Plague and am working my way through The Butcher Boy and The Sun Also Rises.

    You can add The Handmaid's Tale and The Butcher Boy to my English reading and Descartes' Meditations on First Philosophy to my philosophy reading and I still haven't finished Dante.

    What are you reading? II

    I'm trying (read: failing) to finish the translation of The Inferno by Dante that I was given as a present by my secondary school English teacher so I can work on reading Watchmen before I have to return it to the library and Jane Eyre for my English course. Then I need to hammer away at The...

    Since Saturday, I've read Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, Darke by Angie Sage, Artemis Fowl and the Last Guardian by Eoin Colfer and The Spook's Blood by Joseph Delaney. Now I'm working on The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

    What are you reading? II

    Read Catch-22, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, Superman: Red Son, Batman: Year One, Batman: The Long Halloween and Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Just started Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson. I'm hopeful because Anathem by the same author is my favourite book of all time.

    Have started Catch-22, finding it pretty hilarious. My aunt is buying me one hundred euro worth of books from Amazon for my eighteenth birthday, so I'm getting some pretty sweet titles soon enough, including Maus and The God Delusion.

    I tried to read Paolini's Inheritance but considering I've read the likes of Anathem and The Stand since I read Brisingr, my tolerance for literary stupidity has plummeted too far to tolerate it. I gave up on Sophie's World because the translation was really childish and uninteresting...
