    I picked up "And Another Thing..." by Eoin Colfer yesterday and started reading it last night. It is "part six of three" from "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" series. I haven't gotten far enough into it yet to really tell how good it is, but I will say that Eoin did a good job of maintaining Douglas Adams' word play.

    I've read so much greatness lately:
    Electra, Jean Giraudoux
    The World Inside, Robert Silverberg
    Letter from an Unknown Woman, Stefan Zweig
    Lost in Austen, Emma Campbell Webster (I recommend to all Austen fans, very funny)
    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, John le Carré (it was perfect! I'm currently reading the sequel The Honourable Schoolboy)
    ...

    I didn't like Under the Dome (King), not subtle enough for my taste, I prefer more the style of the The Wall (1963) by Marlen Haushofer.

    In the same way I didn't like A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (Twain), I had the impression that the protagonist just want to rebuilt a 2nd modern America, that he didn't even try to take advantage of the positive sides of the area is in. And for his inventions, it's just firework for the eyes, most of them were useless and none of them are explain, etc. The Mysterious Island (Jules Verne) did it better.

    Disappointed the series 1001 before you die (I've read the ones for the books and movies), way too much spoilers!

    The Honourable Schoolboy was a bit boring compare to Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.

    I recently read "A Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley. And am currently reading "Nineteen Eighty-Four" by George Orwell.

    I will read soon The Big Nowhere by James Ellroy, just so I could finally read LA Confidential.
    The Black Dahlia is one great roman noir by the way.

    I've been reading the "Barsoom" (aka "John Carter of Mars") series over the last couple of weeks. I've never read them before. I've gotten through "A Princess of Mars," "The Gods of Mars" and "Warlord of Mars" and am currently working on "Thuvia, Maid of Mars."

    I must say (and maybe this is a comment better for the trailer threads) after reading "A Princess of Mars" and then watching the trailers for "John Carter," I don't see a whole lot of resemblence in story, but maybe that is just me (or maybe that is intentional).
