Dracula's awesome, why would you read the Odyssey if you weren't required?
But the Odyssey isn't exactly history.
I realize I'm putting this here for you to read... but please, don't talk about it.
About 100 or so pages into Black House.
I know its a callaboration(sp) but if it didn't say Stephen King on the cover, I never would've believed the first 80 pages or so had any input from him whatsoever.
I could hardly read it, and normally I'm the exact opposite with his books.
Thankfully, the last few chapters have felt more like him, and now the book is getting going.

Sun-Tzu - The Art of Beef
All three at once. I'm a slow, slow reader, too.
Palahniuk is unreal. The intro 7 pages are worth checking out if you would like any inkling into how this guy gets his ideas. All true stories. Very interesting stuff.
Really in depth book that I'll probably not get through before owing the library enough to go out and buy it. I like biographies thought this is more of an interview-style one.
Just unreal what the men before us went through. Unreal.
MotorCityJoe- Since 2007: You talking to me?
When King and the other guy wrote that, they tried to write in each other's styles so that the readers couldn't guess who was writing what part.
The first part of that book is all set up and background stuff. Which isn't really unusual with King's works. Ever read insomnia? The first half of that book is basically slow, boring nonsense that doesn't have much to do with the actual action of the book.
