March 28, 2008, Square Haven has ceased updates indefinitely. Don't despair, however; the work started here more than ten years ago continues at Videogam.in.

the Da Vinci Code is essentially Final Fantasy X in book form. So if you bash the one and like the other, you're a dirty hypocrite -- shut the fuck up. If you hate both, then great, you aren't easily bowled over by airport-novella storylines around fantastical organisations hell-bent on preserving power throughout the ages. If you like both, well, then you're apparently into reading between the lines and finding the less-obvious tones of a story.

It's a good read, but not that great of a book.

the Da Vinci code is entertaining, people take things too seriously I think. I suppose someone studying history or something would get pissed off because of inaccuracies. but what the hell do I know?! right! so I found it good.

Can we talk about a different book yet? How about Franz Kafka's "The Penal Colony"? Anybody read it? Enjoy it? LOVE IT?

Too much Colony, not enough Penal.

Ahaha, no, and I still have Inferno to go through. I've so many good books on my shelves, just not enough time to enjoy them in. Which, by the way, I re-read through Cinderella - no, they weren't raped. They both had PARTS of their feet cut off (great toe on one and the heel on the other) and both had their eyes pecked out. Nothing happened to the mother at all, which kind of sucked, too.

Rachel meant to say "too much colony, not enough penis", methinks.

hmm. mostly anything by Michael Crichton is a bestseller. I've read three of his books and their pretty damn good. Also try reading anything by Mitch Albom. The Five People You Meet In Heaven and Tuesdays With Morrie are really good books by him. really sad though. The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky is a kickass book. short but awesome. Good luck with choosing btw. ahah :D
