Over the last few weeks I've been reading tons at work. Mostly stuff I've read before but wanted to appreciate again. Here's what I remember. Interspersed throughout were a few really awful pulp horror novels some coworker left at my desk, a collection of essays, and one of those godawful Left Behind books for entertainment value.
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea - Jules Verne
I have loved this book ever since I was very small and reread it at least once a year.
Neuromancer - William Gibson
Gibson back before he had the tendency to be too Gibson.
Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? / Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said / Now Wait for Last Year - Philip K. Dick
I sometimes think I'm the only PKD fan who actually hated A Scanner Darkly and never even finished it. I'd be hard pressed to pick a favourite from these three, though.
Rumble Fish - S.E. Hinton
A great character story that impressed me a lot more than I thought it would.
Stardust - Neil Gaiman
Really not a Gaiman fan, but I found this pretty cute. It's a quick read. Should probably see the movie someday.
Shōgun - James Clavell
This should be required reading for anyone wanting to play a noble/merchant character in Armageddon.
Currently, I'm begrudgingly reading The Gunslinger and I must say I rather like it, despite having little to no appreciation for almost anything else King has ever written. ARE YOU HAPPY NOW, MEGAN? I'll probably be done with it by the time I get off work, so I might update this post later!
