I've recently finished re-reading the books 'Felidae' and 'Felidae On The Road' by Akif Pirincci.

These are two titles I mentioned in another thread. The are dark adult fantasy novels about a cat detective called Francis who solves the mysteries surrounding the murders of cats. Told from the point of view of Francis, who is a bit of a culture snob, it provides some very amusing moments when you have to kind of wonder 'if my cat can really think then what must it think of me?'

Am currently re-reading Screenplay: By Sid Field.

Screenplay by Sid Field was one of the first screenwriting books I ever read, and it's definitely one of the better ones.

Felidae sounds interesting, I might just look it up.

I'm reading a collection of short stories by Franz Kafka that I picked up when I was in Prague. The stories are quite surreal, I can't decide whether I like them or not

I've never got around to reading any Kafka... I think my brother gave me one of his books but it's still on my rather large 'To Read' pile.

Kafka comes highly recommended. Very surreal, very original. Good stuff.

After a couple years of not reading it, I am finally finishing the Left Behind series. I actually have the whole series on my book shelf, and have had book 10 (where I left off) since shortly after it came out. The earlier books paint a really cool negative utopian world, which is probably what continues to hold my interest. The characters are well drawn and if you let yourself follow the "rules" of the world, it's a really good read.

Sure, it's a relation of one viewpoint of the Biblical book of Revelation, and it gets a little preachy in many places, but if you look past that point, it's actually quite good fiction.
