What are you reading?
« on: 09 September 2004, 16:30:51 »

I'm reading now a so-called gothic novel by Ann Radcliffe" The Mysteries of Udolpho" . Since I'm only in the very beginning I can't tell it's quite intriquing so far.
Otherwise my usual readings are connected with Norse mythology, Icelandic sagas, Wlliam Blake's prophetic works...
What do u like reading?

I read "Am Abgrund" from Wolfgang Hohlbein. It's a vampire chronic and that is the first book. The first 100 pages wasn't very exiting but now the story starts to be interessting. *g*
My next book will be "Interview with a vamire" or "Qeen of damed" from Anne Rice. In the moment I'm in vampire fever o___O
normally I also like to read about nature,animals. so biology and science stuff

It's a pity :(
Is it the trivial vampire stuff or something more intriquing?

Hm...I'm learning Norwegian, a very pretty language and I read norwegian books.
And I'm learning also Icelandic and old Icelandic...but it's very hard to get products of these languages.

I haven't read that one yet , but a colleque of mine did . She got totally obssessed with John Fowles. In fact ,I've read The French Lieutenant's Woman and I liked it a lot. It's weird, but profound at the same time. I remember we even made some comparison between Miss Havisham (from Dickens's 'Great Expectations') and the woman at whose house Sarah is working(sorry, I forgot her name :unsure: ,but that's too many details)
I intend to read The Collector and I expect some recommendations from you when you finish it Deadlocked  ;)

There's just one recommendation.... read it!... :)

One of the best Austrian bands - Vanitas - used this book as inspiration for a very (positive) strange song called Sammelleidenschaft (collect-passion?)  :)
www.vanitas.at - with sound samples, their whole demo for downloading... but the lyrics are all German... what is a pity for you... because they're really great...

Oh....ok... probably you like this band... but the demo is a little different of their new album.... which is very various... with female vocals... classic instruments and so on... but if you listen to the samples you'll recognize it... :)

Haven't listened to them, I just wanted to make a note that it won't be so difficult to understand the lyrics  ;)
