I have had quite a bit of time to read these past few days and got quite a bit of reading done. Last week I read through Free Food For Millionaires by Min Jin Lee.  It was at once an aggravating and fun read.  Definitely a strong breakout novel and I'm looking forward to future novels by her.  I also decided I would finally get around to finishing the Ender Saga, I read through the first two books this week and I don't think I could possibly read anymore.  I love Ender's Game, but Speaker didn't sit as well with me this time around as it did before and I find myself disliking Ender a whole lot more now.

Recently went back to my roots so to say.  I recently finished a book called Miguel Street by a Trinidadian author, V.S. Naipaul.  Excellent book, very funny and for me it was very insightful.  It definitely had the island feel and I could feel my childhood summer days return to me.  I will definitely try to read some more of his stuff.

Currently I'm tying up so loose ends and finishing books I nearly did.  I finished up Murakami's Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and I just started the second part of Kafka on the Shore.  I really liked the ending to Wind-Up Bird Chronicle.  It was conclusive, but at the same time not.  There is definitely some key items looming over the readers head, but there is enough closure to make it satisfying.  

I'm also looking for some good suggestions. I've been trying to read sttories related to my major, East Asian Studies, and also to my heritage, Carribean.  I've been pretty good as far as Japanese and somewhat with Korean, but if anyone knows any Chinese stories and authors that they'd suggest that would be great.  Also Carribean, mainly Haitian and Trinidadian.

I've been reading lot's of Asian Lit.  Particularly contemporary.  I am in an Asian Lit course but for the most part of branched from the books.  Murakami Haruki is fast becoming one of my favorite authors.  Thus far I've read Wind-up Bird Chronicle, Kafka on the Shore, After the Quake and The Elephant Vanishes by him.  I'm also starting Sputnik Sweetheart.  All are fantastic reads.  Especially if you can get into magical realism.  His books tend to add that element.  I've also recently read Our Twisted Hero by Yi Munyol.  Fantastic read and I'd suggest it but it is out of print and may be hard to track down.  Also read Yoshimoto Banana's Kitchen.  I can see what makes it so popular but I really didn't enjoy it all that much.  Well I guess I'm really torn on the book.  Then there is Soseki's Kokoro which is a wonderful book but oh so depressing.  I've also picked up 2 anthologies of Korean Short stories that I've begun to read.

I just finished Memoirs of a Geisha, which is fantastic, and I also watched the movie, which butchered the book completely.  So so so much is inconsistent between the two I can't believe that Golden allowed the movie to be made.

Luca Blight - Because he was absolutely insane and is possibly the only villian I can think of where if he was around I felt there was a justified sense of fear in the heroes.

Zidane - SHUT UP ALL OF YOU!!! I do like angsty heroes and such, but Zidane was just such a nice change of pace compared to Squall and it felt good playing as someone who liked to just fuck around.

Tidus - He was just a very well balanced main character and I never found myself ever really getting annoyed at him.

Geddoe - I dont know why I jsut thought he and his party were freakin cool...especially Jacques.

Solid Snake - Like this even needs an explanation

uh...The Duck Hunt Guy...and dog - Also self-explanatory
