I'm reading Paradísarheimt (translated as Paradise Reclaimed) by Icelandic Nobel Prize winner Halldór Laxness. It's very good.

I'm reading the 1st book of Cerebus by Dave Sim. A wieldly popular comic book series about a barbarian Ardvark named Cerebus who has a strong distrust for humans. It's sort of a cross between Conan the barbarian and Howard the Duck.

Currently reading Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time. The first volume. I only read the prologue so far, but I think it's pretty cool.

huh. that's a coincidence. I'm playing a little game called prey. and by little i mean about n+12 levels, where n is the number of levels i can count up to before i start to drool.

I commend your choice. I'm slowly making my way through the complete Chronicles of Amber.

I'm now almost finished with "Hunters of Dune" by Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson. I'm impressed with the way these two have kept the story original and interesting and have lived up to the legacy of the original Herbert's literary genius. It's my 'bathroom' read so I only read it 5-10 minutes at a time, but I suggest it to anyone who likes Dune and also science fiction.

What's on deck:

Recently finished Gaiman's Smoke and Mirrors, a rather amazing if not interesting collection of short stories (some of which are out there, but still enjoyable). Very Happy

Currently working on Forever Midnight (Pred novel) and Laurell K. Hamilton's Burnt Offerings (Anita Blake book 7) which I'm loving both so far. Need to purchase Furuba 15 and Genju no Seiza 2.

Ah, so much to read, so little time to read for fun. Rolling Eyes

...stupid spam bot...

anywho,

I'm currently reading my share of Star Trek novels (what a suprise!)

Vulcan's Forge
and
Prime Directive

Vulcan's Forge is about Captain Spock and the events that follow the untimely death of Captain Kirk. Spock is recalled to Vulcan, his home planet, a large desert with a thin atmosphere, to discover someone is stealing supplies. That's about as far as I am right now.

Prime Directive, I'm not sure what it's about, but the Prime Directive in Star Trek is the law that no one can interfere with the natural development of a primitive species (one that doesn't travel space or have contact with other races), not even if it means saving their lives from destruction (apparantly, this rule did not exist to Captain Kirk, Captain Picard was the loser who followed this rule Razz)

Oh man, the directive. So noble a goal, so blatantly flawed on so many levels, and no one in any of the series actually gave a damn when it was violated.

Over Christmas I read The Godfather, Catch-22, The Last Templar, and I'm now reading The Three Musketeers.

Catch-22: Awesome book. It was moving and eye-opening on so many fronts. It amused me, it shocked me, it dazzled me. So many truths told through supposedly ludicrous events. The style was absolutely spectacular, it kept me engaged for hours upon hours on end. The characters are all memorable, especially the protagonist Yossarian. The comedy is the best bit of the whole book, beginning to end was a laughter-coaster. I think the two situations with the man in white rank among the top five moments of entertainment history genius. Five stars.

Last Templar: A Davinci Code wannabe that actually succeeds on many levels. The actually facts seem to be more or less consistent with history, contrary to Davinci, as well as the obligatory big secrets were actually fundamentally more important and yet more believable. But enough about comparisons, on its own, the book hold swell. Great cinematic style, good pacing, believable characters. But it just didn't have the essential brilliance the former two had. Three and a half stars.

The Godfather: Of all the books I read, this must be the single best of all time. Words cannot describe just how grand a masterpiece Mario Puzo made. I simply could not put down the book for any length of time. Five stars and a heif.

Dhampir, Thief of Lives, Sister of the Dead, Traitor to the Blood, and now Elder Fay are out. All wonderful, I can't get enough of Barb and J.C. Hendee. Chane is possibly the coolest character to date in any book... sucks he doesn't make any appearances till Thief of Lives.

Currently reading Master of Wolves, Awaken Me Darkly, and Traveler. I'd really like to start The Historian...but it's so long and there is homework and actual work to be done.

Master of Wolves-supernatural novel involving, you guessed it, werewolves. Nothing more need be said.

Awaken Me Darkly-novel involving an alien hunter who is trying to solve a murder case, and the only one who can help her happens to be one of the most dangerous species to visit Earth.

Traveler-novel telling the story of the Civil War through the eyes of Robert E. Lee's war horse, Traveler. I loved Watership Down, and I'm loving this one, too. Smile

The Historian-novel involving the history of Dracula tied in with a 21st century mystery. I could go on, but it's a long summary.

"Catch-22" You know, for some reason I didn't like this book (or the movie), except for Major Major Major Major. I do like Joseph Heller and would highly recommend his book "Something Happened". If you pick up Something Happened, don't be dismayed by the chapter titles *L*

I'm currently reading two books on billiards. One is sorta like a textbook and the other is the BSA official rules book. ESPN recently ran a marathon of Jeanette Lee aka The Black Widow. All I can say is, "DAMN!"

I finished Vulcan's Forge and Prime Directive. The culprit was kinda obvious towards the middle/end when they find out in Vulcan's Forge. As for Prime Directive, it was....interesting.

Right now I'm reading Star Trek Titan: Taking Wing. It's kinda good, but so far it's been a drag, I'm in the middle of the book, and not much has happened. Although, Spock makes a few appearances in this book (yay!), where he's still doing the Unification thing, trying to make the Romulans accept their Vulcan brothers.

Comparison:

Vulcan

and

Romulan


The only difference is the forhead ridge is more defined in the Romulans.

I read all of the Halo books. I'm actually impressed with their turn out. Too bad characters like Mckay died. They were kick ass.

I just finished Ghosts of Onyx, and I thought the ending was just too anti-spartan, so many of them died... but whatsisname almost managed to take two hunters with his bare fists...

Finally got round to reading Ken Follett's 'Pillars of the Earth' after being told how good it was for years. It really is...

I think Pillars was definately his best; however, Eye of the Needle is also up there.
