    Recently I read Shadow Country by Peter Matthiessen, Roadside Picnic by Arkady Strugatsky, Boris Strugatsky and Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick.

    Right now I'm reading Boneshaker by Cherie Priest it's my first taste of the steampunk genre good so far.

    I read The Giver when I was in middle school - about 9 years ago.. Damn that's a while. It was a good book too if I remember correctly.

    Right now I am reading Incendiary by Chris Cleave and Alive's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll, both for school. On my own, I am reading The Sun Also Rises, by Ernest Hemingway.

    Well, reading and reading... I'm planning to read and finish the Metro book, only read ten pages so far. But I'm not very fond of reading. I used to be, once upon a time, but I just can't bring myself to sit down and read, especially not when I can read and write here instead :p

    The mind of a leader by Benjamin Holk Christiansen and Fredrik Lassenius.
    It's fairly interesting because they interview modern leaders, and compare their answers with what Macchiavelly wrote in "the Prince" 500 years ago. So far there has been quite a lot of incidents where "the Prince" is far from obsolete, and I regrettingly agree with a lot of Machiavelly's more cynical views, though I do see more friendly ways of deploying scapegoats only to have them publicly executed.

    Most of them are good:D
    Only one book("the marble paradise") isn't good Imo because the maincharakter has magic powers and doesn't fit in the Metro universe.

    Piter and Towards the Light are brilliant, but those are the only two I've read from the series. I already own Into the Darkness, but I still have to find a good moment to start reading it.

    Enemy at the Gates: The Battle for Stalingrad by William Craig. I didn't find out about this novel until after I saw the movie. This has already happened to me on several occasions even with Metro 2033. I played the game and shortley after finishing it, I learned it was based on the book and decided to read it.
