              Finished Earth by David Brin and i would thoroughly recommend it to anyone here.
              Makes some deft wee predictions in it about the current world economy situation which are interesting.

                Ha! You'll have to let us know what you think of that one,tf; in particular, I wonder how well it will have dated...

                Just cracked "A Hat Full of Sky" by Terry Pratchett.

                  About half way through McN,and it is pretty unputdownable!
                  Its dated quite well i think for a book that was written in 1972.
                  Could imagine one of those sects popping up anywhere today i suppose.

                    Finished Tides of War, the second book by the Gates of Fire writer. Also a great book, although not as good as Gates of Fire. (I REALLY recommend you to read Gates of Fire if you haven't)

                      I read it not so long ago, and had to force myself to finish it. I couldn't connect with any of the characters, and thought the story long drawn out and boring. In fact, I would have been happy if they all died at the end. Wouldn't read it again if I was paid.
                      You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

                        • Currently reading "The Drunkards' Walk" - how randomness affects our lives.

                          Interesting read and very accessible for the layman.

                            • I am currently consuming "The Eyre Affair" by Jasper Fforde.

                              I'm not hugely impressed, really, but it's not particularly off-putting and I feel the need to be diplomatic when discussing it with my sister who recommended it.

                              • Finished the Haggard, and decided to read something else before reading 'Ayesha: the Return of She'. (Bit difficult to see how She managed it, too.)

                                The something else I'm reading is 'Elric: The Sleeping Sorceress'. Got it for Christmas and put off reading it until now.
