The Child In Time - Ian McEwan. I'm a huge fan of his, and am deciding at the moment on the books I'm going to base my independent study on next year.

Is it that one book about a guy in a big colourful city? I remember reading a book with that name a long while ago. It began awesome, it was like a big metaphor, but the author couldn't develop it decently, so he started focusing in the main character and their story, and to me the book became a big stupid cliché full of wasted potential. (That's very inspiring to say to someone who needs to finish the book in a week, heh.) But the beggining of that book was awesome. And some parts of it are just scarily good. eek2 Still, overall, if it's the book I'm thinking about, I didn't like it.

The Bride of Dreams, Van Eeden's classic.

It's a brilliant book for any lucid dreamer.
Also rereading Lucid Dreaming, by Dr.Laberge.

L'Aleph - a collection of Stories by Jorge Luis Borges. Started reading it today for the second time. Read from it today:
*) Deutsches Requiem: a former Nazi officer who writes about his life and thoughts the night before his execution.
*) Averroes' Quest: Averroes, trying to write a commentary of the works of Aristotle, fails to grasp the meaning of two words: tragoedia and comoedia, but just then, a conversation with a traveller reveals it to him.

Investigations of a Dog by Franz Kafka. A dog writing about his life, the institution of dogdom and its laws, and how he doesn't quite belong in there.

"Rare Earth" by Peter D. Ward & Donald Brownlee

It's really cool, about how extremely low the chances are of finding an earth-like planet in the universe that can sustain intelligent life.

On the Road, Jack Kerouac (the guy in my avatar).

The newspaper published a pic of him, and commented about what a great writer and a role model for humankind he was. I was so shocked I couldn't help but read again everything I had from him, and now I couldn't resist buying On the Road (last time I read in Portuguese, borrowed from a friend).

Boy, he's even influencing my dreams! eek2 Reading his work is cathartical, refreshing, renewing.

The Dream Cycle of H P Lovecraft. Great stuff, at least some of it.

Yes! First post! ^^

I'm currently actually reading Clive Barker's Book Of Blood 2, but I can't seem to find the time now that school has started. I also have problems with enjoying dreams a lot in that time.
