Finished Reading:

Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell. I've gotta say, this book would have done a lot more for me if I remembered more of what I learned about the political situation that Orwell wrote about here and in Animal Farm than I do. His style of writing is very easy for me to read, but on my lunch breaks at work my mind isn't really willing to contemplate the gymnastics of metaphysics and questions of existence, power and control. I was disappointed in the ending. I figured that it was going to end the way that it did, but I kept hoping that it would all work out in the end... What can I say? I like fairy tales. Let me clarify that: I like modern fairy tales.

Currently Reading:

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. I've always thought about reading it. It's in the RUC library. I might as well knock another one off of the list!

I used to recommend Catch-22 to people, because when I first read it (way back in early high school) I remember thinking it was a great book (quite funny too). When I reread it one summer in University, though, I was really disappointed that it wasn't as good as I remembered, so I'm interested in hearing what you thought of it...
