Just finished bret easton ellis`s lunar park, highly recommend. Also read a couple of Haruki Murakami books after getting recommended here, kafka on the shore and norwegian wood, thought kafka on the shore was good, just a couple of dud translations spoilled it. Currently half way through Brave New World, which is turning into a great book.

i liked that, but thought it was obvious who the killer was. as soon as the character came into the story, there was no real reason for them to be there so it was a bit of an anti-climax

currently flitting between this week's private eye and JG Ballard, Cocaine Nights, but I hate his prose, a real weighty and verbose prick in my opinion.

There was a documentary on that about a month or so ago. It was excellent. They cleaned the fuck up for sure.
