    Only in English. I don't read very well in Japanese (kanji nanbo yattemo wakarahen wa).

    I think my favorite one was Taiko about Toyotomi Hideyoshi. I liked his version of the Heike story, especially the parts set around what is now Kobe.

    Re: What are you reading currently?

    I just finished the Hunger Games trilogy about a month ago. It was an interesting series. Our students will read the first part this year, and a movie is being made. I wanted to be up to date.

    I am about to read "On the Road" again or something by Cormac McCarthy.

    I haven't read Hunger Games, but I think I saw that a former classmate/current fantasy football league member of mine was cast as a bad guy in the movie versions.

    That would be interesting. There isn't a bad guy per say other than the President Snow character. Do you know any more details? That's intriguing me now.

    texastina loves the hunger games series. i may read it next. she convinced me to read harry potter, which was good, but she also talked me into trying twilight, which was ... not so much... so i'm not sure what to think about this one.

    Seneca Crane apparently.

    This article doesn't say he is a bad guy, but I think the place that I first saw this implied it.

    Cool. You know Wes Bentley. My wife and I are fans of his. His part isn't that large in the book, but it is rather essential. I was happy with his casting. I actual like the casting of most of the parts thus far.

    I can recommend the first book without much hesitation. It is an easy read. I don't know if it was essential made for a younger audience, but it is rather good. The next two books in the series just don't flow as well. The pacing problems that book one has a little of are more evident and frequent in books 2 and 3. That's just my two cents. It is rather original and interesting though.
