V for Vendetta is truly remarkable. This is the work of Alan Moore that I value the most.

Books :
Brecht - Writings on Theatre; essential for it's view on the artist involvment in society
Blaise Cendrars - Complete Poems; the guy rocks, period.

Comics :
Kid Koala - Nufonia Must Fall; a whole lotta comix fun from the world's best turnablist
Enki Bilal - Le Sommeil du Monstre & 32 Décembre; graphic storytelling at his best. Can't wait for the trilogy's final chapter to come out (in about five years )

I recently picked up The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells from my school library. This one looks like it'll be a good read.

Eldest, part two of Paolini's Inheritance thingy. Good book, so far, although Nintendogs distracted me for a couple of weeks.

"Chinese Whispers" by Peter May. It's really good, but don't be scared by the first couple of pages (which sort of are softporno-like). It's about a Policeman who lives with an american woman and is the father of her child. And he is going to be the "Police hero" on the news. But, at the moment, there's someone on the streets, imitating Jack the Ripper... in Beijing. Things get worse when Li Yan (the policeman) finds out that the "Beijing Ripper" seems to hold a grudge against the "police hero".

I just finished reading Faulkner's "The Bear"

Soon, I"ll be starting Shakespeare's "The Tempest"

I also picked up this novel called "Deathworld" Sounds intruging although I haven't had the time to read it yet.

"The Once and Future King" by T.H. White. Amazing interpretation of life. I've been meaning to read this for a long time, and am glad I have the chance.

"Do Androids dream of electric sheep" by Philip K. Dick. A book, set after World War Terminus, telling us the story of a Blade Runner called Rick Deckard, who has to "retire" androids loose on a dying earth. The only problem is, that the Voigt-Kampff scale, the only way to identify androids, is not effective on androids with a Nexus-6 brain.

Now, six of those Nexus-6 are loose...

Atlantis by Stephen King. It is set in the 1960s and deals with problems of several persons, wich are shown in the single chapter. Each chapter is made up differently, but there are several cross reference for all chapters have dealings with the others.

These days, I'm reading "A clockwork orange" by Anthony Burgess. It's all about a quite intelligent young guy called Alex, living in some not-too-distant future, leading a small gang and eventually getting caught. He gets this special treatment that keeps him from doing "evil" things.

The book mainly deals with the question if man should have the choice to be good or evil, or if he must be good. Very interesting, I'd say.
