    I don't usually like weeb comics but I've been reading "Uzumaki" recently. Pretty spooky and lots of nice body horror. The copy I have is a really nice hardcover too, so I like that :)

    The Shining is a good book...among the very best of SK. And hailed as one of the greatest horror novels ever, appears in a lot of "Best of" lists

    The film is a mixed bag...the first half is one of the best horror movies ever, with instant classics as the bloody elevator, the twins etc... the second half becomes Friday the 13th and it's pretty boring and unoriginal

    Btw, I like Joe Hill's (SK's son) work...loved Heart-Shaped Box, NOS4A2 and above all, Locke & Key (comic book)

    Book in an optimistic sense...more like novella, being under 100 pages

    From Kafka's full books, I think my favourite is The Castle, hands down

    We disagree on both the book and the film but fair enough :)
    I think I just have a problem with King's writing style whilst the Kubrick movie has the perfect rhythm and atmosphere to please me, that's why I got such a hard on for it.
    I'm guessing by comparing it to Fryday the 13th you're mainly referring to the scene in the skeletons ? Its the goofiest part I can think of and wasn't in the European cut, else it probably would have left a bad impression on me as well.
    Beyond that I still think the movie in its entirety still holds up pretty well

    No, I'm referring to the "laughable-overthetop-maniac-with-axe-pursues-retarded-scream-queen" part. You know, the entire last half of the movie...

    Reading the Strain by del Toro, picked it up by random. It's a first part of a trilogy and a fairly fresh take on vampires, which in this case procreate by spreading parasitic worms with their long sharp tongue. It starts off with an out of contact jet airliner arriving in NY. Later on it seems to be developing into some conspiracy, because a human helped in transporting a slumbering OG bloodsucker into the plane. It was supposed to be a movie and there's a comic of it too.

    I impulsively got myself an ereader, and loaded the thing with a ton of books that I'll probably never read. I'm hoping it'll help me get back into reading somehow... Also I got so many books that I don't even know what to start with now

    Mainly science fiction. I was thinking about Hyperion or Red Mars, since they're both books I loved back when I was reading a lot, but I think I probably should start with something easier since I find it very hard to focus on a book now.

    I have something nice for you, read this (preferably without looking at it in the net, and when you finish, look at the publication date, for maximum laughs)

    Short and sweet, and among the best 5 ever, imho

    I'm about a quarter the way through this. The opening three chapters on stock and commodity bubbles were hugely influential in the modern development of economics and investing. It was published in 1841 so it's free in ebook form. It's nonfiction and verbose.

    There are some lulzy stories like the 15th century alchemist Le Marechal de Rays who killed over a hundred children from the Breton towns he ruled and used their body parts in satanic rituals to turn slate into gold.

    Hardy.

    Nothing beats Hardy. Especially when it comes to selling your wife and child when pissed.

    Also, the poetry of Dylan Thomas

    American Gods by Neil Gaiman. It's pretty neat.

    Actually liked the sequel better, Anansi's boys. But still a good one.
    If you're a fan of pratchett check out the one they did together, "Good Omens." Its one of my top 20 favorites.
