"All I Need is Love" was the last book I've read - an autobiography by Klaus Kinski. I loved it, it's dashing and beautiful.
That could be interesting. Was it as mad as he was?

I wouldn't know, I've never met him. :786

Klaus Kinski has always seemed to me to be one of those good old fashioned artist/lunatics, like Van Gogh. His on set outbursts were legendary:

He was an utterly brilliant actor, but I'd have hated to be on set with him :879

I wouldn't take the whole Herzog/Kinski thing too seriously. They both were well aware of the advertising effects those set conflicts often have. The poor guy in the clip wasn't, though... :D

I am a fan of Dan Brown too Delphina, his reads are quick and fun.  Nothing wrong with that!

Just finished reading "The Giver" by Lois Lowry and "Animal Farm" by George Orwell. I really want to read "The Time Traveler's Wife" by Audrey Niffeneggar but every copy in the library system is either out, lost, or billed. D:! So now, I'm getting ready to read either "Dune" by Frank Herbert or "1632" by Eric Flint. If I can get my hands on it, I'm going to try and read "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" by Douglas Adams. :3

Lately, I've been wanting to read a lot of science fiction, particularly stuff with time-travel. If anyone knows any good sci-fi novels, lemme know :D!

Moonseed by Stephen Baxter - Something unknowingly brought back during the moon landings finally gets out of quarantine and goes a little crazy. Much of it is based in the university department I went to for three years in Edinburgh, so I'm a bit bias, especially as all the chaos in it is their fault  :909

Thanks Stuart! :D! I read a couple summaries on it (I like to know what I'm getting into from different perspectives :p) and it looks like an awesome book! :D I put it on hold and it looks pretty available so I should be reading it within the week! :D!

I'm not really reading any book now but some books that I have really enjoyed is ' My sisters keeper '  and ' The plain Truth ' both written
by Jodi Picoult. When you start reading these books you won't be able to stop...they are intense and keep you asking questions up to the
end...after reading ' my sister's keeper ' the insight of the book stayed with me for a long time, wondering what I would've done in
the same situation. Jodi keeps you on the tip of the chair the whole time!

Hello Delphina,

I found the English text somewhat hard to understand. It looks like you have been using an automatic translation which isn't always a good idea - but, then again, I am sorry to say I do not understand French, so the original text would not have been very helpful, either.

Nevertheless, you are obviously reading the play "Cyrano de Bergerac" by Edmond Rostand. I must admit that I have never read it myself, but I vaguely remember talking about it at school.

Now, as I am the first to reply, have I won something?

Bien à toi,

Jan.

I've just finished Nineteen Eighty-Four by G.Orwell. Now I'm about to begin with Dickens' Bleak House.
