I'm switching between a few books, actually. They are:
-Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment
This is pretty good so far, it being his first young adult novel. James Patterson's the name, I think. :o He gets a bit odd when it comes to describing things, but all in all, a good book. I'm about 300 pages through out of 400-something. :D Sometimes his grammar gets a little weird too. That, or I don't know much about grammar. ^^
I've only read two books by John Grisham, if I recall correctly, but I very much enjoy his writing style. And his characters' backstories are esquisite. (sp?) :) I reccommend The Innocent Man and A Time To Kill by him, as well. Great books. A Time To Kill was an award-winning movie, too, if I remember right.
-Johhny Got His Gun
Without a love for Metallica, I dunno how much I'd enjoy this. :P This is the book the song 'One' is based off of. True story, actually. Guy steps on a land-mine and loses his senses. One lyric desribes it well: 'I'm a prisoner inside my own body.' It's some ant-war literature though, so that might change my perspective just a bit. >____>
