Good reviews, She-Wolf :ok:

So you like Haruki Murakami, me too. I'm finishing his 1Q84 and probably will start the Rat Trilogy soon after.

Thanks musku :ok:

As far as I know the first two novels in the Rat trilogy have no English translation outside of Japan but, as HM considers those novels as weak, he's not too worried about there not being an international Engish edition for them.

Anyway, as far as I know, they're 3 separate stories and only the characters are the same (the unnamed narrator and his friend the Rat).

Next I'll take Norwegian Wood, as soon as I finish this technical book on Computer Networks.

Last book I loved and would recommend is Henri Poincaré's "Science and Hypothesis". I admire Poincaré since my student years. Although it has a rather general title the book is specified in mostly physics and mathematical theories and ideas.

Not a book, actually, but a short story.

Reminds me of the Worldwar series by Harry Turtledove. Funny stuff.

I need reading, can someone recommend a recent novel that is neither too light nor too heavy themed and that I can download from the net?

No love themes, please. Thank you in advance.

check out Donna Tartt's "The Goldfinch"
I'm only about halfway through, but can't put the book down. It's beautifully written and the story tightens up with every page. As it was published recently I'm sure you won't have troubles finding it online.

Sure, I love reading about art. This novel reminds me of the time I read Jonathan Harr's The Lost Painting, about the recent discovery of Caravaggio's masterpiece The Taking of Christ.
Besides, I had a goldfinch when I was a kid, my parents brought him home when I was 9 and he was still a juvenile. He stayed with us for 10 years and, although only a small bird, he's one of the references in my life.

I'll write a review in my blog when I'm done reading the novel :)
