I just finished reading Jacqueline Susann's Valley of the Dolls . It got me so hooked that I finished it in just a few days, and it was almost 450 pages long! Now I'm reading The Land of Green Plums by Herta Muller, about a group of university friends living in a Communist world. It's not an easy read, but its poetic flow of words and emotional storyline make the book very powerful.

If I recall correctly that was his only novel to date. Maybe you're thinking of Timothy Ferris?

Hmm. I just looked up Timothy Ferris and I definitely wouldn't have read his books. Perhaps the name just sounded familiar.

I finally started "Breaking Dawn" last night. So far I've enjoyed the first book much more than the others, but I do want to see how it all ends.

I just finished Ken Follet's Pillars of the earth and world without end. Both are excellent. I am currently reading John Grisham's The appeal. and it is not very good...might not Finnish it. Not a lot of good coming out of the Grisham camp these days I'm afraid IMO.

I am a John Grishman fan but The Appeal was suppose to go back to his original writings, e.g., the Firm. I saw an interview with John Grisham on MSNBC on Thursday. Maybe story will pick up near the end. Thanks for the critique.

Currently reading this series with my 4 year old...such endearing characters in these books, especially the main one!

It's from 2005. It's not as juicy as maybe some people would want, but I think it's pretty informative. Not that there was really anything in there I didn't already know, it's still better hearing it from a band member than some other outside source.

It's David Gilmour. The problem was, Roger's ego was starting to eclipse the music. I don't know if you've seen The Wall (the tour, not the movie) but it was so overblown and starting with Animals on forward the other three members of the band were marginalized to the point where they weren't contributing to the music at all. Hell, Waters fired Rick Wright before The Wall tour even started. The Final Cut was basically a Roger Waters solo album.

I don't blame the others for being pissed off at him. Frankly, I'd rather see David Gilmour and his touring band than anything Roger Waters is doing, even if Waters did write all the songs.

I have heard David speak about the Wall tour and he said it just got to be ridiculous. Sounded to me like he and Roger had vastly different ideas on the direction of the band. Roger got into these conceptual albums and David wasn't really into it. I'm sure ego was also a huge part of their demise.
