What He's Reading Now: Kyle Lukoff Explores Mockingjay

Posted on September 29, 2010 at 5:30am 0 Comments

Kyle Lukoff delves into the dystopian world of Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games.

I used to work in the kid’s section of Barnes and Noble, and borrowed a copy of Suzanne Collins’ the Hunger Games right after it first came out. It looked pretty good—post-apocalyptic future America, governmental oppression, and a girl who saves the day.

I got home and cracked it open, expecting to read a… Continue

I am reading more poetry and non-fiction than ever before. My favorite authors take too long to write books. Elizabeth George is always worth the wait.

My bedside table is heaving, as always. I read a couple of books over the December holidays - The Cat's Table by Michael Ondaatje - an enchanting story of a boy on an ocean liner and the ramifications of the people he meets on his life. The Sense of an Ending - one of the most beautifully written books, with a frustrating, intriguing ending. A Visit From The Goon Squad - wonderful, intricate, writing, like a ride on a rollercoaster, moving from character to character. The Fear Index by Robert Harris - intelligent thriller. And so many others to come ...

I've just started Before Night Falls, a memoir by Reinaldo Arenas.  I've just begun planning a trip to Cuba and for some reason as I wrestle with writing and understanding everything I need to grasp to write the 2nd draft of memoir, I have this innate knowledge that it all comes to an end in Cuba, that somehow she, an island with such beauty and a tumultuous history is kindred with me and my own.  I am also looking for inspiration after taking a break from such a emotionally draining project.  So far, his writing is direct, simple and matter of fact. I look forward to getting deeper into his narrative.

I don't usually do a trilogy but I am finishing up the series by Larsson (The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest). I have on my other e-reader The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. I am half way. My nephew keeps talking about the Illuminata so I thought I would read this book and find out what it means... A good movie book so far. I've downloaded Lisa Gardner's latest and John Patterson's.

Thanks for the welcome! I'm still learning how to navigate the site, but what I've stumbled upon so far I really enjoy reading.

I just finished reading Pat Barker's The Ghost Road, which won the Booker Prize a few years back. Because my novel-in-progress is set during WWI, I hesitated reading it until I was well into revision. The Ghost Road is better than her more recent Life Class, and is based on real people, like poet Wilfred Owen, which I didn't realize until I'd finished.

I'll also give a nod to two friends with marvelous books: Leslie Pietrzyk, whose novel A Year and a Day is a must read for those of us who grew up in the Midwest in the 70s, and Cathy Day, whose linked story collection The Circus in Winter has been adapted as a musical by students at Ball State.
