    Hi, Jekan. I don't know why have you chosen me to read your story. While flattered, I am afraid you're mistaken, I am not a fan of a sci-fi genre and I am not acquainted enough with it to be a good...

    Saba, thank you for the recommendations. Right now I don't have the time to watch the films, but I will see them as soon as I can. The thing is I need more energy and concentration to watch them so...

    Sounds familiar. I can handle the numbers, but when it comes to doing something with them I am quite bad :D

    9th of February is fine. But more time wouldn't be bad. Either way works for me.

    Yes, I liked it, too. They've change the story and the accents here and there, but I could feel the atmosphere of the book quite clearly. It wasn't what I expected, but I wasn't disappointed either.

    Count me in, too. I'd like discussing the book, since the last time I tried reading Faulkner it turned out to be a rather difficult task. I read "The Sound and the Fury" but I wasn't good enough...

    That's quite interesting indeed. But this isn't the only strange thing we've seen when it comes to the problem with authorship. These mysteries turned out rather difficult to solve and I start to...

    Yes, this contrast of environment is definitely good idea. But I wonder if this doesn't somehow change the end of the experience. Being a isolated in the city and in the woods makes the whole thing...

    Yes, I want to do the same. When I finished the trilogy the first time I read it I started reading Thoreau, now I am starting with Withman (well, I wanted to read his poems since I read Cunningham's...

    I've seen parts from Match Point. I caught the last ten minutes of it while they were broadcasting it on TV. They made me want to watch the whole film, but it will have to wait. Same with Cassandra's...

    As I said in my previous post, in my opinion the Don Quixote's authorship problem could be a hint how to solve this one. What if the person who actually find the manuscript is Quinn himself? I...

    Great idea, Lupe. I loved the movie. It seems this reading is going to turn into some kind of big experiment. I can't wait to see how all this will end :p

    I was rather surprised by that. Probably because I don't like "Siddharta" :D I was for "Steppenwolf".
    Also, I regret seeing Cunningham didn't make it. Maybe the next time :)

    I, on the other hand, will switch the places of "The Portrait of the Artists as a Young Man" and "Dubliners". Although the second one is a book of short stories it confused me more than the novel....
