Post Rate the last book you read

In honor of the movies/tv forum name change, here is the first official thread on the subject of "books." Talk about the last book you read and rate it using any type of rating system you feel would be best suited for your purposes.

I'm in favor of having "Lit" added to the title of the forum, since we can discuss novels/comic books/etc. in here and it's not really movies/tv

Triple A granted the forum Name Change Request I made in Casual. I thought about "Lit" but I thought that could sound pretentious. I also didn't want people to think it was a forum about the band Lit.

Yea I could see how people would find it pretentious. I tend to just use it as a blanket term, but that's probably because I was an english major. If you asked me a few years ago I probably would have scoffed at it

Also, if Triple A made a typo and forgot the "L" in "Lit", people may have thought it was the It forum, and their confusion would be further fueled by the first book rating in this threads.
A plethora of Pennywise related threads and posts would probably begin to pop up, and Zeeboe would run wild

I have a feeling this thread will be dominated by a handful of posters. Perhaps it could evolve into the first ever TPWW Book Club

Divine Comedy: Inferno - 10/10 - I had the Penguin Classics edition and it was helpful because it tells you who all of the guys Dante meets are and draws your attention to connections between Cantos as well as between the Inferno and the later books.

This isn't the version I read, but here is one if you want to look at it:

I am going to tackle The Dark Tower series this week. I've been reading Stephen King books for a couple months now. I will probably take a long break from them after I read the DT series.

I want to get around to reading a bunch of classics that I only read, or was supposed to read, in high school.
Most of them I either skimmed or cleverly got around reading, and I think I would enjoy going back and actually giving them my time.
Animal Farm, 1984, Catch 22, Faranheit 451.

Also, The Hobbit.

I read JPod and Microserfs back to back. They are fairly similar and I think I have merged their plots together in my head. I think I ended up thinking JPod was the better book, but I think it's because I read it first.

I haven't read that, but I have read Hey Nostradamus! which was good. More serious than the other ones I have read by D. Coupland.

Unfortunately, I do not have time to read books for personal reasons anymore. The last book I read was a monograph on Medieval brewers for a seminar. Not a bad read if you are interested in the history of beer.

The World Without Us -Alan Weisman - N/A -10

I didn't finish this book. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't exactly what I anticipated. It takes a few divergences that were not fitting with what I was promised by the book jacket. I would have finished it, it wasn't unreadable, but I'm in the middle of another book that I would rather read.

Never Let Me Go - Kazuo Ishiguro 9/10

Really liked that the science fiction elements of the story were left in the background and that some of the specifics were left unexplained. Hard novel to talk about without revealing the "plot" but I highly recommend it.
