    I heard that it has a lot of mistakes in it. Not too sure about that though.

    didn't expect that, to be honest.^^[/quote:3nzj7hwg]

    I know many Stephen King books, not only the popular ones like "Cujo" or "The Green Mile" or so. ;)

    Great choices, guys.
    I'm currently reading The Idiot by Fyodor Dostoevsky. I really like Dostoevsky, I love the depth of his characters and how he totally has the pulse of his society. I'm really liking this book except I'm not really in the groove of reading for some reason. I'm distracted.
    Last book I read was Naked Lunch.

    Currently "reading" 1940s: Decades of the 20th Century by Nick Yapp
    I have an awful weakness for art books, albums, etc. I like to "feed" my eyes with interesting photographs that in this case tell a story. Actually, I love these photographs so much I'm planning to get all the ten books ^^

    Everyone thinks he knows Nietzsche, few have really read him and even fewer can claim to understand even half of his writings. You should start with Der Antichrist or Also sprach Zarathustra but my favourite is Jenseits von Gut und Böse. The reasons are too complex too state in one or two sentences. Feel free to ask in social media though :)
    I thought about reading Also sprach Zarathustra but in Poland it's really tough to buy any book in English and I don't want to "spoil" it by reading in Polish, so I'll just wait till I visit NY on next holiday :)

    Since Nietzsche was a German and thus wrote everything in German it doesnt matter if you are "spoiled" by the English or the Polish translation.

    Well, yes. But I might enjoy the book more in English, since I think it's a beautiful language. It's just my silly, personal preference.

    Have you read Misery? That's an excellent book.
    Stephen King's best work is, in my opinion, the Dark Tower series. Epic.

    Nah not really. So far I spotted one tiny mistake, a voice sample that's used on My Monkey and he said it appeared on Wrapped In Plastic. Other than that it's pretty accurate. I like the fact it's not just about Manson or the band itself but also has lots of details on his influences and references.
