Awesome book. Suprised I never heard of it before.

Grendel is a 1971 parallel novel by American author John Gardner. It is a retelling of the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf from the perspective of the antagonist, Grendel. The novel deals with finding meaning in the world, the power of literature and myth, and the nature of good and evil.
We teach parts of that at my high school in conjunction with Beowulf. They used to teach the whole thing.

I'm on a "graphic novel" run:

Just finished Neil Gaiman's 10 Volume "The Sandman" series (along with Death/The High Price of Living, follow-up). Now I'm reading the quasi-spin offs "The Books of Magic". I've also started "V for Vendetta" and the first volume of "Constantine" trade volume.

Also recommend the "Y, the Last Man" series.

I'm currently on book three (Tripwire) of the Jack Reacher series. Started reading before I found out about the movie. The move looks like it may be good, but Tom Cruise is a bad choice for the lead role.

I'm also reading a the book The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor. It's a book about the war in Afghanistan. Not very interesting as other Mid East books...I'm almost done with it.

Just got the first novel by Law & Order creator Dick Wolf called The Intercept and it's a great page turner.The link below will take you to a full review if interested.

In an early scene, Osama bin Laden, not long before his death, is plotting a new assault on the United States. He tells his lieutenants that he wants “a strike that will break the soul of the Western demon.” Then it’s July 1, 2011, and we’re aboard a Swedish airliner headed for the United States. A young Muslim, armed with a knife and a fake bomb, tries to force his way into the cockpit but is overpowered by five passengers and a member of the flight crew. Among those who interrogate the hijacker is Detective Jeremy Fisk of the New York Police Department’s Intelligence Division; he’s Wolf’s hero for this novel and a projected series.

As news of the failed hijacking reaches the nation, the five passengers and the flight attendant — The Six, they are soon dubbed — are hailed as heroes who saved hundreds of lives by stopping the terrorist from crashing the airliner in Manhattan, his admitted target. But Fisk is not so sure. He thinks the man is not very smart, had little chance of seizing control of the plane and might be a diversion from a more serious assault planned by al-Qaeda.

The Falling Man by Don DeLillo. It's about the trauma of 9/11 from the vantage point of a corporate lawyer who was in the north tower, his estranged wife that he sort of reconciles with after leaving the wreckage, another woman whose briefcase he took in a fugue state and later forms a relationship with, and a hijacker on Flight 11 who is a protege of Mohamed Atta.

Johnathan Maberry?

If so I read that last year. Really good.

Right now I'm in the middle of the third book of Mira Grant's Newsflesh Trilogy, Blackout (the first two are Feed and Deadline). It's about an adopted brother and sister pair of bloggers after a zombie apocalypse, and it's really good. Not quite as dystopian as you'd expect from a zombie novel, the grid is still up and technology has kept on advancing, but most of the other conventions of the genre remain intact. Lots of zombie killing, lots of political intrigue, lots of conspiracy.

It's actually a text I chose for a contemporary lit class. Later in the semester we're going to read Choke, Neuromancer, and I'll teach The Wasp Factory for the third time, probably because it's in my top three novels

I have read more books in the past year than I have since college combined...and quite a few I never thought I would.

I just started "Blind Descent" by James M Tabor

It's about a race to the bottom of the deepest caves in the world.
It's a true story.

Might as well be Game of Thrones with all of the death and broken bones in the first few chapters. I've done a little time under ground and have enjoyed it, but this shit would not be for me.
