Cloud Atlas has been sitting on my shelves for a couple of years now, waiting to be read. Maybe I should try it soon.Meanwhile, having finished Asimov, I have been reading A Princess of Landover by Terry Brooks. It has been quite a few years since I read the original Landover books, but I still enjoyed it. I am currently reading Amerika by Kafka.
World War Z for the seventh time. Before that was Monster Island, and before that was Day by Day, and Armageddon: Origin to Exile....I'm a little obsessed with zombies.
Anybody have excellent sci-fi recommendations? I'm interested in something contemporary, but I wouldn't mind picking up a classic, either. My all-time favorites are Dune, Red Mars, and Blindsight.
I have a particular fondness for the Barsoom novels by Edgar Rice Burroughs, though truth be told, I've only read the first book, A Princess of Mars.
I recently read His Dark Materials at the urging of a friend. They were interesting, but to say I was let down by the ending would be an understatement. Talk about a suspenseful build up ending in... nothing exciting.As the series was his childhood favourite, I've been considering re-reading one of mine (the Dark Is Rising Sequence).
Talan said:Someone said I absolutely had to read El Rastro de tu Sangre en la Nieve, so I'm working my way through Strange Pilgrims by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I have the original text and an English translation, (along with the actually bilingual friend who demanded I read this), so it's interesting all around, both the work and the way I'm reading it.
Not heard of the middle two, but I thought Foucault's Madness and Civilization was quite interesting. Also, although it was some time ago now, I do remember enjoying reading Jane Eyre.So, potential hugs, but only for the middle two. :P
@orti An Abundance of Katherines has been on my maybe-to-read list for a while. Let me know how it goes? I'm slightly depressed to realize that I have apparently aged beyond appreciation of some YA.
