In the past month (or less) I read all three books 'Millennium' series (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo ; The Girl Who Played With Fire ; The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest). The first one had bad translation issues, but the other two seemed okay. Anyway:

FANTASTIC books. They're not everyone's cup of tea. But I liked it because there was a strong heart and a story to them. As I sat there reading them, I was like, "Wow, I can totally see these books as films!" And, so now, my job is to find the DVD's and watch them.

Elisabeth Salander is a bad ass chick. I'm bummed the world won't get to read more of her, but I don't know how anything can top book 3. It was a nice ending to a story that had so much more undiscovered potential. RIP, dude.

I certainly hope this counts. There's an AMAZING article about the Paris Catacombs at gizmodo.com

And yes, they do mention The phantom of the opera Smile

Revisititing a novel called "Night Magic," by Charlotte Vale Allan.

Anyone heard of it?

It's a POTO based novel with a blend of Beauty and the Beast?

Read it years ago; didn't really care for it, unfortunately. Neutral

Just finished rereading Susan Kay's Phantom. Now I'm rereading a Twilight parody called Nighlight. I forgot how bizarre the ending of this book was, but it's still funny. Not exactly the best book to read in public, though. I got quite a few strange looks today.

I read half of that book last year in a bookshop, but I didn't quite like it enough to buy it. Can you recommend it?

Just fininshed reading the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I agree the translation was bad, and apparently not a lot of proofreading as far as I am concerned, however it was a knock down great story, (I had already seen all three of the movies,) Lisbeth was a strong willed and cool, I would highly recommend it, very dark but a good story, I am looking forward to reading the Girl Who Played with Fire next.

The last two books are my favorite. The third is awesome. :') Overall, enjoyed the series so much. The movies, not really. But Noomi is perfection as Lisabeth. Hope you enjoy the last two!

Right now I'm reading Don Quixote and Monster Hunter Vendetta. Yes, I usually read two books at a time.

Just finished off the Lovely Bones, I saw the movie last year and just got round to reading it, it was moving, funny in places, sad and nothing like I have ever read before.

it used to be I would read the books before the movies or mini-series on tv came out. now I am quite the opposite, but I would like to be getting back to reading more.

Patti Lupone a memoir

Post  ladygodiva on Thu Sep 13, 2012 11:23 pm

I did not read the book, but I got the audio recording at the library, read by the author herself Patti Lupone, it was very interesting, not as much mud as she could have slung at Andrew Lloyd Webber, it was funny,moving, interesting and she has most of all a passion for her craft.,

another good book was Sex Doctors in the Attic, a funny short book by Molly Jong-Fast, (Her mother, Erica Jong wrote some really smutty books.)

Ah, I'm re-reading Les Miserables myself. Such a great story, but Victor Hugo does love his tangents...

Lady C I want to read Les Mis too!

Currently I have a few I'm going through because I read one book on my kindle while traveling, one book I keep at work...or try to and one book at home.

Reading International Harvester by Matt Erickson (a new and local author for me) on my kindle, it's alright, the story is an interesting concept but the story gets boring and slightly cheesy sometimes.

Reading coffin dancer by Jeffrey Deaver at work but I'm taking it home because I'm going on a two week vacation after tomorrow.

Reading fifty shames of earl grey (a fifty shades of grey parody) at home.

The Century of the Surgeon by Jurgen Thorwald .
A book on the milestones of surgery. It has a chapter devoted to noseless people in India. It appears that cutting someone's nose off was a typical form of punishment in that country. That's why they had to develop procedures to provide people with false noses.
If I'm not much mistaken, Erik has been to India at some point ?

Maybe that's what got him started on the idea for the mask to make him look like everyone else!
