“Right now I’m re-reading ‘Babbitt,’ by Sinclair Lewis. It’s about a man who is dissatisfied with his life as a town booster and has dreams about the fairy child that eventually leads him to break out of his mold for a while.”

“I finished ‘Nights of Rain and Stars,’ by Maeve Binchy for my English class. I thought the characters were too predictable and overreacted to everything.”

“I just finished ‘X-Rated Bloodsuckers,’ by Mario Acevedo. It’s about a soldier who goes to Iraq and becomes a vampire, then upon his return sets up a detective agency. It’s kind of got a film noir feeling with a good sense of humor.”

My French Whore by Gene Wilder (yes the actor). It was wonderful, short but still... It's about a WW I soldier who becomes a spy on the opposite side by accident actually and falls in love with a french woman who happens to be a prostitue by fault. There's more to it but I don't want to spoil it for anyone.
