I realize not as many people read books, as people watch movies and listen to music but I still think it would interesting to see what kind of books our fellow metalheads read. So, I'd like you guys just to give me the name and author of the last book you read along with a brief description of the genre and topic.
I'll start:

Cockroach By Rawi Hage

I don't really know to which category this book belongs to but nevertheless this book perfectly depicts the life of an outsider from the perspective of said outsider. It follows the life of an exile, who migrated to Canada following some kind of middle eastern crisis ( I believe the Lebanese Civil War) , and is living a poor and desperate life, which is contrasted with that of a cockroach. This book depicts how he adapts and copes with the environment, there also is an intricate love story cleverly weaved into the whole debacle. Highly Recommended + The author's writing style is unique, he has very clever, hypocritical and satirical descriptions.

Also If you like something this deep and well written, you should check his other book Deniro's Game.

House of Leaves - Mark Z. Danielewski

One of most the bizarre books i have ever read. I like the claustrophobic atmosphere it gives, and the feeling of slowly loosing your mind.

Sex sin and zen by Brad Warner

His worst book I have read. Basically just his opinions on sex. And though the porn star interview was interesting, he pays way too much attention to it...like 3 or 4 chapters

McCarthy is a master of style. The story is somewhat unsatisfying and I think could have exhibited more originality, but his English is what carried the book.
