Yeah I'm very lazy and also reading makes me very sleepy. Grapes of Wrath is a good book but I still like Of mice and men better because it related to be more.

Another reason I hate reading is my wife made me read Pride and Prejudice and that book is long and boring, She said I was just like Marcy Darcy and by the end of the book I wanted to cry because it wasted so much of my time.

The last book I started listening to was a brave new world but as soon as they brought the savage to the city I lost interest and stopped it. Is the ending of the book good?

The book on the whole is excellent. (To me). I like it more than 1984 actually. if you would say that the ending of the book is "good" as such I do not know., Depends. Do you like endings that make you sad and make you want to never be born? Nah, just kidding. it is good. Read it. Now.

Yeah the savage annoyed me so bad. I got to the part ware the hot girl puts the moves on the savage and he freaks out and pushes her down and locks her out of the room. After that I stopped because he was annoying me. But the first parts of the book were it explains the way life is in the future is one of the best futuristic descriptions of life I have witnessed.

Well, you might like the end in that case.

Sounds interesting. Is the title intentionally oxymoronic?

I don't believe it. You're not stupid. You're just intelligently-challenged.

Not really, seeing as I corrected myself and said I'd give them a try.

David Mitchell, anyone? Come on! One of you fools must have read one his excellent novels? Ghostwritten, Number 9 Dream, Cloud Atlas, Black Swan Green; they're all excellent.

This David Mitchell sounds interesting, looked his books up. So recommend a starter Floo.

Also need to read Foer's second book, enjoyed Everything Is Illuminated a lot. There was a stage play made from the book, wonder how that turned out...

Currently reading The Contortionist's Handbook by Craig Clevenger after a recommendation, and it's suppose to be fantastic.

Apparently it's getting made into a film soon, and his second book also, so have to get reading.

Mild, David Mitchell is a fantastic author, I'm sure you'll like him a lot. The characters in his stories over-lap and interlink, but he's not limited to this one trick. He writes great prose, and sustains interest.

I'd start with his first book, 'Ghostwritten'. I don't want to give too much away about it because I think it's best if you just experience it, but it introduces some of the themes he's interested in. This edition also has a beautifully evocative cover:
