I just finished Club Dumas by Arturo Pérez-Reverte and I really enjoyed it.

This book served as the foundation for the Polanski / Depp movie The Ninth Gate.

The book reminded me of Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum, if any of you enjoyed that one.

Ok guys, there may be a new place for you to get your fix in the next six months or so. I just started the process to get a small business government grant and with a little luck, I'll be opening a used book store Broomfield. Discounts/perks to OrangeMane members, of course.

So, you need a job?

Seriously though, it's something I've been looking into for over a year and a half now. Recent events at work have inspired me to get serious about it.

MT, I finally for around to "Angels and Demons." Tough call between that one and "The Da Vinci Code," though I have to give the nod to Da Vinci, barely. It's probably just because of the order I read them, they were both great reads. I'm absolutely chomping at the bit to get "The Solomon Key." It's another Robert Langdon novel.

Glad you enjoyed them, Ben. I read 'Angels and Demons' first, so maybe that's why I gave it the nod. I hadn't heard about a new one! Put me on the list that's excited to read it.

Congrats on your book store! Best of luck.

Can somebody tell me what Siddhartha and Steppenwolf are all about?

I was looking through a suggested reading list and they were on it and I know several people here have read it before.

Wow that's cool.

Congratulations Ben.

Unfortunately I live in OKC but if I make it up to Denver I'll have to come by your store.

I read these years ago, and I'm afraid neither one of them left much of an impression on me. They both deal generally with a search for enlightenment. Steppenwolf involves a bunch of weird dream fantasies. I remember even less about Siddhartha. I think some people have seen the books as very heavy on the Jungian "hero's journey" sort of thing.

Haven't read Steppenwolf. Siddhartha is a (in my opinion) ficitonal cousin of the tale of Buddha's real enlightenment. Very readable and enjoyable. It relays the substance of Buddhism without much of the dogma. I give it a big thumbs up.

If you want to try some other Hesse, try to hunt up "Journey to the East". May be hard to find as it is out of print. But it is an interesting tale about servant leadership with a dollup of mysticism thrown in.

Soon as you get an address, I'll probably swing by and check out your stock.

Ok, I hit a couple winners at the library. "The Onion Girl" by Charles de Lint and "Metaplanetary" by Tony Daniel. "The Onion Girl," while still fantasy, is outside my usual fare. I don't usually like the 'fantasy crosses over to reality' type of fantasy novels, but this one was great. "Metaplanetary" is a distant future sci-fi interplanetary civil war type. Another very good read

I also hit a real loser. "Otherland" by Tad Williams. Great premise, but after more than 250 pages, the story simply didn't seem to be going anywhere. The guy has good characterization and setting, but the story simply never engaged.

Currently reading "Digital Fortress." It's the last Dan Brown book until "The Soloman Key" comes out.

I've got a couple Larry Niven books in the queue.

Right on, I saw The Onion Girl at Barnes & Noble last weekend and it piqued my interest, I'll definitely check it out now. Thanks!

Just finished Valley of Bones by Michael Grubner. He always has some interesting twist on the religious aspects of his stories. One premise got a little far fetched but other than that I enjoyed it.

I've waited for a year for the new Preston and Child book and I just finished it. ( Book of the Dead )

It was great like the rest, left me hanging AGAIN! Grrr.

Any Koontz fans here? I know there were some. The third book in the Frankenstein series was slated to come out this summer and I cannot find any info on it at all. I'm waiting on pins and needles for this one!

If anyone knows, let me in on it, would ya?!

I keep watching for it. I'm such a freak I have one and two on the shelf. Won't read them until three is out. I can't stand waiting in between.

I guess you could call me a Koontz fan. I got kinda burned out until a friend loaned me "Fear Nothing" and "Sieze the Night." I've been meaning to check out the Frnkenstein books, but there are so many books and so little time.
