I usually read Sci-Fi but I did read The DaVinci Code and saw the movie. I was disappointed with the movie though. My imagination is always better that the directors.

Ewww, sorry there, IMAOZI, but I tried Dan Brown and didn't care for his writing style at all. Too academic, I thought. I didn't like the movie, The DaVinci Code either.

I am reading "Angels & Demons"

Awww....shucks!

@Travis: TSD sounds interesting, but is it too business/economics based -- or is it for the layperson.
Comment by A Former Member on April 13, 2009 at 8:38am
@Sydni: I've been meaning to write to you about it since you're the one who recommended it. I am enjoying it, though I do miss bits and pieces of it since I'm listening to it at work for the most part. His writing style is not real dynamic, and the man who reads it does just an okay job, but the info is what is really interesting. It is very informative, and I like how he dispells the myth that primitive cultures lived in harmony and balance with the world around them. Now we know they exploited their resources just as much as we do today. He is very impressive, and the lessons are very harrowing. How can one man know so much? Have you seen the GGS DVD yet?

I'm currently reading The Shock Doctrine (The Rise of Disaster Capitalism) By: Naomi Klein. This book is intense.

@Mack: I really like listening to books on tape, because I can do it at work. I'm listening to Jared Diamond's Collapse: How Societies Choose to Fail or Succeed right now.
Comment by Mack Fuller on April 12, 2009 at 2:00pm
The library at my University has all of Dawkins' work. Great stuff. I actually listened to The Audio Book of the God Delusion which was cool since it's was read by both Richard and his wife.
Comment by A Former Member on April 11, 2009 at 7:34pm
@Cheryl: Thanks for sharing that. I'm actually reading The God Delusion for the first time. Dawkins writes just like he speaks. I had my doubts about taking the time to read it, only because I need no convincing. But it is interesting and a good read, and I've enjoyed it this far.
