Cool! Let me know what you think of the Murakami
Thanks for the comment. I found Proust a real challenge to read at first, mainly because I was used to reading more modern (post 1950's) writers. I needs a lot of concentration to really get into it. But once you're in, you just get lost in this weird hypnagogic state.

Virginia Woolf is definitely not to everyone's taste, but To The Lighthouse is probably a good place to start. Or at least its a better place than her more experimental works like The Waves.

Also check out Orlando. It's probably her most popular novel and really entertaining - a fake biography of a gender-swapping immortal aristocrat!

Saw you liked Trainspotting, and I was wondering if you'd be interested in reading my new novel and posting your comments here (as well as on a few other book-related sites). Thought you might like my novel since it's also about a group of disturbed kids and a bit dark. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:
