This was another good bathroom reader, but World War Z kept me much more entertained throughout the reading.

I just finished re-reading The Dresden Files and that Night Angel trilogy looks pretty interesting. Think I'll pick it up and see what happens.

Ha, yeah, that's pretty much the same reaction I had. The book made me so upset and I spent the rest of the day cursing the author, but it affected/touched me so deeply that I couldn't help but love it. And, wow, I didn't even know there WAS a movie - I'm pretty excited.

I too have been devouring the Scott Sigler collection

Earthcore
Rookie
Infected
Contagious

And I grab new ancestor episodes as soon as I can.

all great.

As for the last non-audio book I read it was the Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, easily the best book I have ever read and right now I reading Atlas Shurgged, its good and even though its such a big and popular book and considered her masterpiece I like it but it just beats its message over your head too much where in the fountainhead the message was more natural and far far less dividing and controversial.

Yeah it sat around on my shelf for about a year too...it's one of those books that when you see it at the store, you go "Oh man, I'll love reading this" then you never do, then some day you're like...fuck it, and when you do, you smile.

In a stunningly typical of myself move, I have started a book none of you have graciously suggested. It's called Neuromancer by William Gibson...anyone heard of it? I promise some of your suggestions are next for me (Never Let Me Go is next -- that looks great, thank you to GossipTGirl for that one.) I'm not really sure how I feel about Neuromancer yet. Some of the scenes he sets are incredible and his view of the future/internet is very bleak which I like (it was written in the 80s.) But the writing is dense, almost too dense for me. And I don't particularly like Case, the main character. I dunno. If you've read it, your thoughts?

It's one of maybe 3 or 4 sci fi books I read, and I read it a while ago, but I liked it. Some of the stuff is hard to follow/visualize, especially the later cyberspace scenes with I believe Wintermute.

I meant to read the other 2 books in the trilogy, but never got around to them.

If they ever made it into a high-budget movie, it'd be The Matrix times babillion, sans the bullshit religious references.


Oh, and that reminded me of another fiction book I read:



It's so gloriously twisted, and might appeal to the fetishist freaks on the forums. From Wiki: one publisher's reader returned the verdict "This author is beyond psychiatric help. Do Not Publish!" which is what prompted me to read it. The movie is also great (the 1996 one, not the bullshit unrelated 2004 crap)

I do get a very Matrix-y vibe from it. And holy fuck that book looks awesome.
