I just finished the second one! Surprisingly violent though. :O
We're discovering this stuff together. ;)
For any Neal Stephenson fans, I picked up Big U (his first published novel)
It's pretty raw but a great read if you've already read his other stuff. He pretty much has small side stories from several of his later books contained in here and they seem like funny inside jokes when reading it now. In general I'm not surprised the book itself wasn't a hit originally but considering when it was written there's several subplot satire lines that hold up remarkably well.
I got this book from bookbub, I think thats the name of it. It's a service that emails ebook deals to you. I learned that you really shouldn't pick a book solely on what you can get it for. Having said that, even though it took me a while to get really into it, the book turned out ok. Some decent twists and turns and a good concept. I was bummed that the book is the first eight parts to what I think is now 10 deep. 9 and 10 are sold as Kindle singles but i really don't think I'll invest any more time into this one.
Excellent account of the allied invasion of north africa.
Good series. Ended up reading the whole thing in a day.Quote:
Y: The Last Man is a dystopian science fiction comic book series by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra published by Vertigo beginning in 2002. The series is about the only man to survive the apparent simultaneous death of every male mammal (barring the same man's pet monkey) on Earth.
Btw, I've finished Scalped now and consider it to be one of the top 3 series I've ever read.
Finished like the whole Scalped series? :O
I read Y on a binge too, but it took me about a week. ;)
Always a Winner by Peter Navarro
It's a book about the business cycle and successfully forecasting/managing it.
Very informative. Great read.
I've read the first 4 books of Northlanders and loved the **** out of them. Still need to get caught up on the rest.
