Re: What Are You Reading Right Now?

I'm currently reading Shadow of the Wind from Carlos Ruiz Zafón, after pretty much everyone I know (who is reading books on a regular basis) read it already. It's written in a brilliant way and now that I'm halfway through I'm actually sad that it's going to end soon. This is the book I'm reading at home on my cosy sofa with a cup of tea, during travels I currently read The Immoralist by André Gide.

Last couple of books I was reading were:
Lord of the Flies (William Golding) which I liked but was expecting a bit more. The Wasp Factory (Iain Banks) which I found brilliant, Brave New World (Aldous Huxley) which I liked very much indeed and the quite interesting book "Die Glut" by Sándor Márai. I don't know if the last one got translated into English, the original (Hungarian) title is "A gyertyák csonkig égnek".

Next books will be "Bekenntnisse eines Bürgers" by Sándor Márai (again, I have no idea how this book got translated into English if it got translated in the first place) and Evolution by Stephen Baxter.
