I've just been given a copy of Hopscotch by Julio Cortázar. Although I already read that book, I think I'll give it a second look soon.
Cortázar is considered one of the most influential writers of Latin America after the II World War. The main character is Horacio Oliveira, an Argentinian living in Paris, whose thoughts and opinions are the very core of this brilliant book. Literary, philosophical and musical references entwine with the episodes running through Horacio's life.
I'd like to suggest both Hopscotch and Cronopios and Famas. The latter will make you think which of the two definitions sums you better.
For dreamers who won't publicly admit it.

The cover is extremely interesting  :-D
Haven't started as yet, I'll tell you more when I'm into the book. I'm currently reading a couple of very easy-going books my sister gave me. After that, I'll be back to my dark books. I have some Laymon to read, the one on witchcraft by Montague Summers, and about ten others waiting to get my attention :?

I was so bored after the first chapter that I left that book aside to pick up "Devils and Demons and the Return of the Nephilim" by John Klein and Adam Spears.

This post.

Let me rephrase it, my hissing and maddening one.
Which book/books are you currently reading or you are going to? No, I don't consider playboy issues and comics as books, so stick to the real, possibly dusty ones  :roll:

"American Gods" (everyone else seems to be finished..? Didn't you make pencil notes in the margin? Cross-reference sections? Etc?  :? )

"The Road To Eternal Life" (not an alchemical tract, a Christian book; the "eternal life" referred to is Salvation. "...Broad is the road that leads to destruction... and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it" Matthew 7:13-14)

"The Practical Christian" Gordon Keddie

As I don't want to make a record out of crap books with non-existing words (or books buyed when I could download them for free on the Internet - Feel like *hissing, snarling and biting*) so I'm taking my time to read Cortazar again while I'm waiting for the next shipping of crap books I happened to order online a few days ago.

Romeo and Juliet, when time permits

You like Shakespeare?  I do too.

If you want to watch what I consider the best version of this book, try the one by Franco Zefferelli.  It was released in the late 60's and stars Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting.  I believe it was the first time anyone used actors that were remotely close to the age of the teens in the book.

Each scene is composed with background and people as if it was a work of art.
