The only recent stuff I've read was for my Contemporary Lit class and I would recommend In Cold Blood, Zeitoun, and Slaughterhouse Five. Otherwise, I only read textbooks lol :(

Did you like In Cold Blood? I think this is one of the few books I absolutely hated. I had to read Dust Tracks on a Road and hated ICB more.

Anyone here like medicine books? Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracey Kidder changed my life a LOT. Also, I liked The Knife Man by Wendy Moore and The Discreet Pleasures of Rejection.

I actually loved In Cold Blood! LOL :X
I want to read some medicine books but I didn't know where to start, I think I might just start with your suggestions. You know, besides all the other shit I gotta read.

Hmm, this list looks remarkably like what I use when my sleeping meds run out.

Steinbeck, you just can't go wrong with his style and stories. Ayn Rand, she had attitude and a point to make, spend the time it might enlighten you. Kurt Vonnegut, his stuff is not the easiest read or better yet, to fully comprehend where the drugs were leading him but some good stuff all the same. For serious classics even Thomas Hardy has some hard hitting and interesting twists on what many see as "conventions of a proper society". Ray Bradbury for his insightful look into what we will be facing moving forward in a electronic age. Hell I love Stephen King, Graham Masterton, Robin Cook and so damn many more of the fun and mindless set. Man, so many good reads out there...

Edit: Hell! I forgot one of my all time favorites, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, Hunter S Thomson

Hahah Fasttrak. I read Fear and Loathing, then I watched the movie. Both were pretty trippy, the book was still better. Johnny Depp plays Hunter S. Thompson (Satan bless his immortally damned soul) very well.

The IP class is interested enough, cases are decent reads. Con Law and Evidence are as bad as they sound. Crim Law is awesome. Folks getting murdered, stabbed, raped, cannibalized on the high seas :)

There is actually a much earlier version of the movie with... damn was it John Belushi or Dan Akroyd.. damned memory going out early on me. It was losely based on the book with some directorial license tossed in and was a shit-load better then Depps anemic attempt. I think it was called, "Where the Buffalo Roam". Will see if I can track it down, pretty funny shit.
