What books have you read lately?

14 replies 5 views Edited Dec 19, 2006
I read this incredible book, "The Sicilian" by Mario Puzo. Puzo also wrote such hits as The Godfather and Omerta.

The Sicilian is about a young man named Turi Guiliano and his friend Aspanu Pisciotta. On his sisters weeding day Turi, along with Aspanu, travel across the mountain to buy a cheese wheel. The cheese wheel is actually illegal though (This is post WW2 so there are still food limits) and on the way back the 2 are stopped by police. The local police put them under arrest, Turi's sisters wedding day will be runied. Turi is actually shot by the police, Aspanu runs into the woods to hide. Turi kills the Police Captain and the 2 other officers flee. They are now marked men, so they become bandits. In the novel they are the most famous bandits in Sicily.

Then Michael Corleone comes to Sicily, tries to help them, bla bla bla.....

I hate reading unless it hints a lot at my interest. And I mean, A LOT. Like the time My Dad's friends nephew won the Lottery .

That's the way - uh-huh, uh-huh

When I read a book, I want to read about something that could never happen in real life. I just can't get into books where the story could of really took place.

The last book I read just for kicks was like in April.  With all the "Da Vinci Code" hype running around I decided to read the book.  I liked it.  I saw the movie and I liked that too.  But the last book that I read was the text book for EMT training that I went through.  Yeah that wasn't exactly a fun read, interesting, but not a leisure book.
