The Brief Wonderous Life Of Oscar Wao
were there some little goldfish and some kind of old woman?
by the 80th generation of Buendias I wasn't getting a little weary.

If I were going to read it again id leave it til Easter :D
A very short book but brilliant.

If you don't like him however, it'll be fucking awful.
he also wrote the Princess Bride, amazingly.
is probably the best thing I've ever read. It'll break your heart 10 times over. Infinite Jest is also completely perfect in every way, like every Wallace did.

anyone got that Sergio De La Pava book everyone is pissing their pants about? think i'm gonna read it over the christmas break
Flicked through it, not sure about it. First few pages are pretty dense. It's not super high on my reading list.
I also like
The Savage Detectives
My Name Is Red
New York Trilogy
Oh, and any Vonnegut, obviously.
