Thread: What are you reading

  1. Default What are you reading

    I looked for one but didn't see a thread on this. I figured there would be since there seems to be a bunch of avid readers here.

    Anyways I just picked up these two books which I've heard good things about. The first is non fiction the second is fiction.

    Ghost, by Fred Burton.

    World War Z: An Oral History of the Zombie War, by Max Brooks.

    World War Z is excellent. Apparently a movie is going to be made from it.

    Right now I'm reading Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett on the recommendation of my mother. I'm only about 100 pages in, and it's pretty slow so far, but I've liked what I've read.

    I recently finished Pastwatch: The Redemption of Christopher Columbus by Orson Scott Card. It's an alternate history book about Columbus and America and how things may have been different if a few things were changed. Very enjoyable, though definitely rushed at the end.

    The Mallorean series by David Eddings.
    LadyXXXXXXX: I guess I just like swallowing.
    LadyXXXXXXX: OMG that thing is HUGE

    Tyrillian [General]: "Do you worship V'tull?"
    You [General]: "V'tull worships me."

    Speaking of the Wheel of Time, they're splitting the last book into three books.

    Dude's dead and they're still finding ways to squeeze cash out of it.

    Just end the fucking thing already, I've been reading the series since junior high.

    Alas, Babylon by Pat Frank. Pretty good so far.

    Ahem.

    Roger Zelazney, Creatures of Light and Darkness.

    A passage...

    Anibus raises both hands about his head and lowers them to his sides.
    “Resume dancing!” he commands the dead.
    They move to the music once more.
    The body-cutting machine rolls into the hall, and the prosthetic replacement machine follows it.
    Wakim looks away from them, but they draw up beside him and stop.
    The first machine extrudes retainers and holds him.
    “Human arms are weak,” says Anibus. “Let these be removed.”
    The man screams as the saw blades hum. Then he passes out. The dead continue their dance.
    When Wakim awakens, two seamless silver arms hang at his sides, cold and insensitive. He flexes the fingers.

    Just finished Atlas Shrugged. Pissed me off smart rightly. I will probably try the fountainhead in a month or so and see how that treats me.
