I just finished reading Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and it was really good. But for a book which has been stereotyped as horror, nothing horrific really happens (i mean, 2 ppl die, but not in detail, more ppl die every one week of Alias!). The only 'horrific' thing is the personification of "evil" in Mr Hyde.

lol yes the olive was very funny! ^_^ another scene that made me laugh was when she had that bright yellow strip on her hair and then when she flipped her hair like in movies, it fell off!!! :LOL: these type of books are just for fun though- they aren't considered like "great books" you know... ones that are just last forever and make you really think.

Bridget Jones...that has to be the funniest book I've ever read!
definitely!! :LOL:

i don't think the movie did it justice though. :mad: which is funny because andrew davies (the screenwriter for pride & prejudice) and helen fielding co-wrote the screenplay and colin firth co-starred in it! still though... there was just so much missing (like the whole julio storyline), that the movie was very disappointing. grrr... :mad:

anyway, enough about that! the book and its sequel were great!! helen fielding should come out with another one!! :D

I just read The da Vinci Code and it was so good! I think y'all would like it, because it's a lot like Rambaldi. It's sort of a mystery about these clues that da Vinci left in his paintings. You should all read it!
