Dune Messiah right now, then moving onto The latest Terry Brooks Shannara series and/or William Gibsons CyberPunk books. I only just read Neuromancer even though I played CyberPunk 2020 for years, just never seemed to get around to it before
Have you read the Mars Trilogy? Great books, hard reading at times though because of all the geography talk.
Just finished The End of the World Running Club. (Fairly quick read. Though I read quickly. Chewed through it in around 3 and a half hours)
Don’t want to say too much about it, but I enjoyed the journey.
Oh,if any wants an excellent mix of psychotic mythology and comedy I really recommend Good Omens by Neil Gaimen and Terry Pratchett
Just finished Iain M. Banks’s Use of Weapons. Dang, ohmigarsh! I’ll be pondering that one and sorting backward from page 500 to page 1 for a while. I started reading the Culture novels from a later one, then started reading from the order they were written. Every one has been great, but Use of Weapons (No. 3 in the order) is the best and most intense of the group I’ve seen, so far. What a writer, what patience in telling many stories while all along telling a tale.
Just finished the “The Tower of Swallows” by Andrzej Sapkowski (Witcher)
I don’t know how the Witcher is translated to “Vaják”, horrible…
I was juggling the remaining 4 books in the OP and got bored. But to gain momentum, I did something counter-intuitive and searched for which classic books are the shortest and started reading Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. It helped me read faster because I’ve read 65% of it in one sitting.
Have you played the games too? Are they true to the books?
I actually playing with the Witcher 3 GotY and there are many references to the books, something needed to be changed tho…
Finished reading Fahrenheit 451. It was a great,short read.
The story in game was not written by Sapkowski. Sapkowski only sold the rights. Didnt even took the percentage of gains option because he never thought about game becoming a success.
Of course the stories and world in Sapkowski’s books was so rich, it was a good base to make a game that takes place there.
Hilarious book, I really enjoyed it. Might actually re-read it here soon as I have once again run out of books
They’re doing a series of it! Michael Sheen as Aziraphael and David Tennant as Crowley. Inspired casting I think
The Once and Future King By T.H. White
I’m currently re-reading TEA and Templar One, along with these forums every now and then.
The Black Tide Rising series.
Zombies! And Boats!
Seveneves by Neal Stephenson, I’m a big fan of his and Snow Crash and Anathem are two of my favourite novels but I’m not blown away by Seveneves. I’m 4/5ths of the way through the book and it’s a 3/5 so far.
Just finishing Evan Currie’s Hayden War series awesome fun read, Next I might reread my Hammers’s Slammers by David Drake.
