1984 - George Orwell

Whoever hasn't read this book should go do so RIGHT NOW. I haven't even gotten really far yet and I already think it's immersing, chilling, and oh so awesome... not to mention eerily true in multiple places. ph34r.gif Truly incredible book.

Also...

Warrior Born - Justin Stebbins

Yes, I get to read it long before you do. tongue.gif I'm helping to go over the second draft, you know.

Hm. Well, I would tell you the Diadem series by John Peel, but they're actually more 'teen' books... pretty short, with rather large text. They're still great, but I don't think they're exactly your thing. I grew up reading the first six, then the publishing company he used died, but he actually published some new ones fairly recently. When I learned that, I had to finish 'em. tongue.gif So yeah, forget about that... they're hard to find, anyway, even if you would care about them...
Huh. They're all escaping me at the moment. I'll get back to you later. tongue.gif

Oh, and you've read the poem The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, right? You probably have... but if you haven't, DO SO RIGHT NOW, okay? tongue.gif Man, that poem is so awesome it still gives me goosebumps when I read it.
"Like one, that on a lonesome road
Doth walk in fear and dread,
And having once turned round walks on,
And turns no more his head ;
Because he knows, a frightful fiend
Doth close behind him tread."
So awesome...


Also, if ANYONE can find the book Nothing Lasts Forever (and the book 58 Minutes) for sale on any site, link me to it. I flippin' wanna read 'em, but I can't find them anywhere... rolleyes.gif

Hooray! Now I don't need to nag you about it anymore tongue.gif And she's right, 1984 is freaking amazing(I'm about halfway through right now). Orwell certainly knew his stuff....

BTW, if you're looking for a good Stephen King book, I thought that Heart's in Atlantis was pretty good.

Here's Nothing Lasts Forever.
If you don't mind a used paperback version of 58 Minutes, here it is.

It is, from what I've read of it. I still need to find my old copy in the family's endless bookshelves (we have a HUGE libray in the house. tongue.gif), and read it. wink.gif

Chapterhouse: Dune. Everything I've read by Frank Herbert seems to take an extremely long time to read. Anyway, the Dune series(s) seem to go on forever. They're all around 400-600 pages so... Yeah... Long... I know Frank Herbert wrote 6, but I have no Idea how many his son wrote. Judging by my random estimate, If you read Frank Herbert's Dune books you will have read approximately 3000 pages. Wow.

Any Tom Clancy you haven't read is a good idea. And Stephen King. And Michael Crichton. And, if you haven't gotten it, get G4M3, and support Scorp. wink.gif

I'm reading Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick (otherwise known as the loose inspiration for the movie Blade Runner).

After that I've got Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, Red Dragon and Hannibal by Thomas Harris (Silence of the Lambs is a really good book, there's a recommendation) and The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammet. Watching Veronica Mars to excess has left me with some serious Detective Noir cravings.

I read 1984 a few months ago, and I didn't really enjoy it. It's not that it isn't good, because it is, but it was the most depressing thing I've ever read. The overall message was, basically, no matter how bad you think things are, they always get worse.
