I've had a couple books like that. Once I start reading it I have to finish it or I feel like I've wasted my time and it's a pain to get through.

Alice Cooper -- Golf Monster: A Rock 'n' Roller's 12 Steps to Becoming a Golf Addict

I've been an Alice Cooper fan for nearly forty years and when I saw that he had come out with this book I had absolutely no desire to read it. A friend of mine had a copy and suggested I read it so I did and I was pleasantly surprised.

A couple of classics:

Who Goes There? - John W. Campbell, Jr. - 8/10

The House of the Seven Gables - Nathaniel Hawthorne - I always thought it was some period romance piece. What a surprise it was more of a gothic horror story in which the romance part is barely visible. - 7/10

Just finished this. Excellent book, as good as the movie. Though it's interesting how much was changed in the film, yet it always ultimately came back to central storyline of the book. Almost like two people had the same story outline and filled in their own interpretations. Admittedly, had they not made many of those changes, I don't know if the book would have been filmable.

One thing I liked much better in the film than the novel was that they didn't over-explain the history behind the story. I felt the novel dragged out the exposition too much near the end, whereas in the film they gave you just enough info to get the gist of what happened while allowing you to infer for yourself the full story behind the tale.

Yeah except for when the teacher explained what would happen to them they didn't really spell it out. I plan on reading more of Ishiguro's books in the future.
