Do you push infinite jest in every book thread? lol. It's good to see someone keeping up the fight for good literature. I recommend this book, also.

What are you looking for?

Brave new world, 1982, Of mice and men are all social books

Fooled by randomness, the black swan, and winning the losers game are all great financial reads

Bourne conspiracy, the hunger games, novels by ken follet, etc

The Godfather is my all time favorite

The only jest is the one David Foster Wallace is able to pull on readers after drudging through his thousand page superciliousness.

good call Mr. Breeze! Loved Texas

Lords of Discipline (story about The Citadel sans the black guy part) is awesome! So is The Great Santini and Beach Music by Pat Conroy who was a Citadel grad.

I recently picked up my JACK LONDON. stories and re read Cruise of the Dazzler and other short stories - I can't wait for my so to be old enough to read London, Harry Potter be damned!

Puzo's book is no where near as good as the movie, very rare that one can say that.

"My Losing Season" and "The Great Santini" are two more Conroy books that I'd recommend.

Boo this man!

In seriousness, the novel definitely isn't for everyone, but I got a good bit of entertainment and enrichment from his work. I think it is brilliant.

I thought Beach Music was horrible. He cannibilzed parts of previous books to make it.

I'll grant you that he is brilliant, but I personally wouldn't say say that his work is.
