Me too, but the rest of my book club adored it.

I loved TGWTDT, but I did find that you have to concentrate really hard to get into it, and keeping all the characters straight is a challenge!

Mansfield Park by Jane Austen.

I too started TGWTDT and found it hard to read... I saw the movie today and it was brilliant!!! I really enjoyed it, and im looking forward to the next installments coming out at the cinema.  rolleyes.gif I will try again to read the book now after seeing the movie, i think I will find the characters a bit easier to follow after seeing the movie. It was fantastic!

I started to read The Road but didnt like it and after reading another thread here i dont think I will bother with it... NMS.

Great I am glad I am not alone. I am trying to power through it as I want to go and see the movie too. Is it subtitles?

I'm on the final millenium book The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest. For those reading the 1st the following books are far more engaging and quick to read so do perservere.

Yes, it's a Swedish film. They also use white writing on white background so can be hard to read every now and again. It's an excellent film.

Just finished April Fool's Day (Bryce Courtenay) - finished it on April Fool's Day.  Can't believe I'd never read it before now!

I started The Lovely Bones (Alice Sebold) yesterday.

I loved these. Now I'm hanging out for the last book.
They were much better than the Twilight series.

You really have to persevere with "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo". I had trouble with it too but am so glad that I soldiered on with it. I have read all 3 books in the series and enjoyed all of them. I am now reading a Patricia Cornwell one which I am not really enjoying, usually I like her books. It's called "Scarpetta".

I have finished Vampire Academy and really enjoyed it.  I am now onto one by Laura Bloom called "In the Mood" - dont know anything about it or the author, so we will see what it is like.

Off to the library website now to order the next vampire book.

Oh, I also just bought the graphic novel of Twilight blush.gif

The Coroner (investigating sudden death) by Derrick Hand and Janet Fyfe-Yeomans.  Derrick Hand was the NSW State Coroner for 5 years.  It's very interesting and doesn't delve heavily into the cases.
