I really liked NOS4A2 (a lot!) this guy shows promise - the next generation so to speak - I think he takes after his Dad. He's cute too! (Wow - now I sound like a pervert - I'm probably old enough to be his Mom!)
You are as boy crazy as me Neesy! They're all cute in one way or another!

I really liked HSB and Horns. I really really really want to read NOS4ATU!!! Just can't afford it. I also would like to read his short story collection, but its hard to find around here. Lock and Key seems cool, too.
I should have picked up the one I found at Goodwill for $1.99 and sent it to you. It scared me, just standing there reading the first couple of pages, so I didn't get it. And when I went back it was gone. The first scene of the book was disturbing.

...I really enjoyed Heart Shaped Box, but NOS4A2..is second
So would you recommend Heart Shaped Box then? NOS4A2 is the first and only book of his that I have read. I noticed they had a couple of his books at our local library recently in hardcover.

I have a huge crush on Joe (I've admitted this on the boards before). He's pretty darn cute! :wink2:
I thought there was a wee bit of resemblance to a young James Brolin with a beard (like in Amityville Horror) but not really a lot

And yeah, I did post this on the old board but what the heck! :glee:

I've read 20th Century Ghosts, and the three novels, plus a couple shorts on the Kindle, Thumbprint, Twittering from the Circus of the Dead, etc. And some of the stuff he's written w/ SK. Haven't read the Locke and Key yet, though I want them. I'd have to say that Heart-Shaped Box was actually my favorite of the novels, though I really liked the others as well. But I got attached to Jude ;)
I just finished Twittering from the Circus of the Dead (I thought it was creepy but hilarious!). One question about the title though: shouldn't it be "Tweeting" and not "Twittering"? I do neither so I'm not really in the know, but I thought "tweeting" was the correct term. No?

Much better than twerking that's for sure (and I don't tweet either) - I might have "tittered" as an adolescent, however :smile_002:

:drool: exposed knee cap, eh? :nrvs: Glad to see you back here :laugh:
It's good to be back here, too. But, it is difficult to actually get get signed in to the new version of the Board. I added it to my 'favorites' list on my computer so hopefully it will pull up the new version instead of the old one. If it pulls up the old one it takes me awhile to figure out how to get to the new version, which is a little frustrating.
