Yep, IT is an amazing book! He is at his best when writing about day to day life from a children/teenagers perspective!

Think of the movie 'Stand by Me' which is an adaptation of his novella 'The Body'

Just finished A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. Immediately ordered the second book on Book Depository, it was a great read. Can't believe I didn't know about it until now.

Until that arrives, I am reading For the love of Physics by Walter Lewin. A great read for anyone interested in physics. I'd also recommend you check out his physics lectures on MIT Open course ware.

Ah that's a great book. You reading the Omnibus one with Fall of Hyperion included? I've read the first half of the follow up Endymion, it's really good too, still haven't gotten around to Rise of Endymion yet, might have to re-read Endymion first since it's been so long.

Currently about halfway through Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie. It's the second Rushdie book I bought (read The Satanic Verses last year) and I really like them both. Rushdie has a knack for excellent, if somewhat bizarre, storytelling.

Just finished A Clash of Kings mere moments ago, absolutely loved it, epic does not begin to describe this series.

I think I'll wait a while before I start on A Storm of Swords though, don't want to get through them too quickly and be faced with a horribly long wait for the next one after I finish A Dance with Dragons!

I'm currently reading Men of the Otherworld by Kelley Armstrong. It's the 9th book in her Otherworld series.

It's one of my favourite series of all time and I would highly recommend it. :)
