I recently finished "L.A Confidential". James Ellroy is probably my favourite author but I had been postponing reading this since I already had a pretty good idea of its story and characters from the (also excellent) movie. Turns out the book is an altogether different beast, deeper, darker and larger in scope, although I kept visualizing most characters with the respective actors in mind.
Now I got into the latest Umberto Eco, "The Prague Cemetery". I like it so far, it gives off a certain Baudolino vibe with some elements of Queen Loana thrown in (the only Eco I never finished) but with a darker twist.
When this is over, Pratchett's "Maskerade" is up next. I believe it will be my 11th Discworld novel and so far they were all pretty good (some even great).
