NO

Do not do that.

ADWD goes beyond the timeline of AFFC and starts to continue the stories of those characters also about halfway through, and I think you could potentially spoil stuff for yourself. I just wouodn't recommend it.

And I think I know what you mean by :bawling:... ;)

Ahh, I just thought that I could read both and finish Feast before its POV chapters pick up in ADwD... ? But it might be less confusing if I just read Feast straight through first. Idk.

Oh god, yes. I am so sad because even though it's been like 5 years since I first read ASoS, I know what's gonna happen to everyone and FUUUUUU. :( I'd go into detail, but I don't want to spoil it for the people here still on the earlier books.

Well, I mean, you could try and read them simultaneously. I'm still not caught up in ADWD yet, I think, but I know that there will be POV's from certain characters in ADWD that show up later that take place after AFWC (aka, Arya's and Samwell's storylines as well as some others will be continued). Your own funeral if you spoil something for yourself.

AND I think it would be a little confusing to have to keep track of like, 8 POV characters at once.

starting "Just After Sunset", a stephen King short story collection. which makes it more like candy if you just read them one after the other.

Recently completed:
The Psychology of Superheroes (on kindle)
the last 3 volumes of Stephen King's, "The Dark Tower" (hardcopy) (just to finish the set) (and back to back to boot)

Finished Death in the Afternoon. By the time I get back to school I'd like to get through:

Retromania: Pop Culture's Addiction to Its Own Past by Simon Reynolds
Watching the English: The Hidden Rules of English Behaviour by Kate Fox
Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly by Anthony Bourdain
I'm A Stranger Here Myself: Notes on Returning to America After Twenty Years Away by Bill Bryson
Ulysses by James Joyce
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

I'm also passionately thumbing through a Stockholm travel guide in planning for my next big trip and a tome called The Beer Book, that is far headier than its title suggests.

I'm not a reader, by any means whatsoever, but because Borders is closing I decided to pick up the I Am Ozzy autobio. Started reading it earlier tonight and I haven't put it down, almost half way finished with it now. Very interesting read, I think, learning about the early days of Sabbath and all the crazy shit they did and had to deal with.

Dude! SAME! I just finished ADWD yesterday! Holy living shit, I have so many theories that I want to discuss but can't since nobody I know has yet finished it. And I do have lots of problems with it. The entire book was seriously just a journey for characters, and none of them ended up where they were supposed to go. Very goddamn unsatisfying in my mind.

And The Road is fucking awesome. People who hate it either have weak stomachs or don't like good literature.

I'm neither and I don't like it? He basically spent an entire book doing what most good authors could pull off in 1/3 of a book.

Also the writing style managed to be dry while altogether trying too hard. I liked what he was going for with the book, but disliked how he clearly missed the mark. Overrated as fuck. Maybe most people that like it haven't read enough 'good literature' to realize it's nothing great. ;)

I dunno, I heard a lot of bad things so I was prepared to dislike it, and while I was annoyed by some things (apostrophes in some contractions, not in others? "autistic dark"?) eventually I got too sucked into the story to care. Glad I read it.

After that I really need to complete an historic book about Flemish SS-men and a book about Brussels, I had already started those lol.

Then, it's time to finally buy everything from Stephen King & some Barker, even though I've stopped reading fiction a few years ago.

Oh and in between I'll add some comic books to my collection, I desperately need to have everything of "The Killer" (De Killer in Dutch).

Still working on Dune. I've got the whole original series, which I plan on reading all the way through. I'm debating getting the expanded Dune books, because they are so cheap online (2 bucks each used) but I know I'll never get to them. I still have to re-read all my favorite Redwall books that I bought last year.

I'm probably going to start Lords of Chaos when I get to school...now that I actually know something about black metal (and listen to it). I'm also going to pick up some graphic novels tomorrow. Should keep me plenty busy.

All books about sportsmen who are still playing, and even more so are still in their 20s, are pointless. No exceptions. Especially if it's not autobiographical.

Dude, I know! I re-read Redwall in the spring, and once I picked up Mattimeo, I couldn't put it down. There are 6-8 new ones that have come out since I quit reading the series. If my schedule allows, I want to read them. For being such long books, they're a pretty quick read.

I'd also like to finish the Dune series. Had to take some time off after Dune Messiah; that really isn't leisure reading, when you have to put the book down to cross reference things and soak in all the mythology and politics. Iron Heel by Jack London is also on my shelf.

Right. His most interesting work was the essay he wrote sometime in the 1980's. I think that's when he described his accidental ingestion of LSD... and announced his divergence from traditional scientific doctrines by basically denouncing the idea of an objective observer, and saying "no objective reality exists separate from us."

Yeah, I love his work. I want to read his new one, 77 Shadow Street, but the reviews have been shitty. Also a little hesitant after reading one of his most recent, What The Night Knows. Overal, a pretty decent novel, but it could have been so much better. Beginning towards middle was great, then the end was pretty blah.

I just finished the Star Wars novel 'Red Harvest'. It was decent enough, it didn't have the creepy feeling that it's predecessor 'Death Troopers' had or any of the scenerios that actually had shivers running up my spine (any parts in Death Troopers that involved the wookiee child were really well done). It was also a little short, less than 250 pages, and featured no characters in any other Star Wars work so there wasn't much room for backstories. If anything there were to many characters in this novel, most of which were pointless. And since 95% of the characters (victims) are sith, you really can't feel bad for them.

On the plus side I always enjoy Star Wars material that exists outside the classic characters everyone knows. I always find it's better when the author can use the technology and lore of the Star Wars universe but not be tied down to a core group of characters and keeping in line with their already established personalities. This novel, being set some 3500 years before the movies, fits into that catagory. The descriptions of the mutilated corpses and zombies was a lot more graphic than Death Troopers.

Overall, a really good read. If you haven't read Death Troopers I'd suggest you read that before this one.

Just knocked out 'The Perfect Murder' by Peter James last night. It's one of those short stories published as part of a programme called "Quick Reads" aimed at getting people to actually bother reading.

They're cheap, and profits go to the programme in order to continue it, so all good. I just grabbed the ones by authors I actually like.

Sadly, this one sucked :( Childishly written, pretty dull story with annoying characters, and the twist was obvious from about half way through.

It was just a quick break from the excellent 'Shut Your Eyes Tight' by John Verdon though. Wanted to prolong it :)

Reading Cannery Row by John Steinbeck. Having never read Steinbeck before this is not exactly what I expected but I'm loving it.

I never particularly liked the RE games, but I loved that book series.

Trying Dune for the first time since I was a young teen. I couldn't get through the book when I was younger but now that I'm older it is time to try again.
