I'm reading Hard Times by Charles Dickens, and so far it's absolutely great. I think it's going to be my favorite novel of his--very fun, and it touches on a theme close to my heart.
I was trying to read Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami, but I stopped halfway through. I really didn't like it--too aimless and flat. I don't think I'll pick up anything else by him.[ Ni > Ti > Fe > Fi > Ne > Te > Si > Se ][ 4w5 sp/sx ][ RLOAI ][ IEI-Ni ]

I just finished the new Wheel of Time book. In some places, you can easily tell it's a different author but not in other places. It has a much more somber mood than any of the others too. The story is definitely coming to its end.
Now, Blink and some essays on the Financial Bailout.

The Spire by Richard North Patterson
Words like dark, haunting and disturbing are almost understatements when used to describe this psychological mystery/suspense thriller that Patterson is among the best at writing. There really isnít anything to pick about; itís narrative is very well-focused and well-edited. Everything ties in. The Spire has all the winning ingredients: depth, convincing characters and dialogue, tense drama, page-turning suspense. No need to go into what the Spire (a monument at the small town college where much of the novel is set) symbolizes, except to say that it becomes the twisted icon of the story.
