Summer book list update

July 29, 2010 § 1 Comment

So, earlier this year I posted about the great summer plans I had for reading all the books that I had wanted to read but couldn’t because law school sucks the life out of you.
  • Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter, by Seth Grahame-Smith — Not gonna lie… wasn’t nearly as good as I was hoping. The concept was pretty cool at first, but by the end, it just got to be dumb.
  • The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, by Stieg Larsson — Was sad when this one was over. Not because the book was that great (it wasn’t) but because it was the last thing by Larsson before he died. This book wasn’t as good as I had hoped, but was still entertaining.
  • Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime, by John Heileman and Mark Halperin. — This was good. I never know how much to believe when I read books like this (the “unofficial true story” type book), but when it came out, I remember that it seemed to irk both sides equally, which means it was probably pretty true all around. Good read.
  • This Present Darkness, by Frank Peretti. Almost too dumb to justify commenting on. I stopped reading, because it was way too hokey and just not good.

And that’s all I’ve made it through on my list. I’m now reading a new addition to the list, Code 2.0 by Larry Lessig. It’s about the internet, regulation, and (at least a little bit) the Constitution. I guess I can’t pretend I’m not a law student all the time.

Anything else I should try to add to the list? Anything good you read this summer?

Where Am I?
