I just finished Ready Player One yesterday. It was a great read, a real page turner. Had a great William Gibson kind of vibe to it. Lots of 80's references, which was right up my alley. Can't wait for the movie to come out!

Gamer with Gerard Buttler.  I remember in the intro it says something like "from the book, Ready Player One"

No, there's a Spielberg movie coming out next year. Gamer came out in '09, and Ready Player One was published in '11.


My mistake.  Wonder how that false memory got in there :embarrassed:   If Spielberg is making it, it'll probably be a decent representation.

The Assassin's Blade Series is the one i'm currently reading. Not thrilled about it to be honest.

The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger. I really dig the pacing of the book so far and it does take you to a different dimension of an apocolyptic world.
One is glad to be of service.

A Grave for a Dolphin by Alberto Denti di Pirajno: A collection of  short narratives of his experiences as a doctor and administrator in colonial Eritrea  and Somalia fashioned mostly out of tales told to him by local people.  Much of  it has an air of  magical realism about it so how much is true and how much fanciful is for the reader to decide.  The writer was half English and the book is very well written and a compelling read - medical men who can write well are very good observers of humanity.  The title story is the most intriguing - about a young Italian surveyor and his relationship with a local Danakil girl - and a dolphin.   I won't say more so as not to  be a "spoiler".   I also found out  that the book was one of David Bowie's  top 100 reads and he was offered the chance to play the  young Italian in a film adaptation which he turned down as he thought it was impossible to film which is probably true though it would have made a fascinating project.

That is a good one.  I liked the whole series for the most part.  Really get the impression that King is familiar with Mescaline  :happy

Best buy I got from Barnes and Nobel was the complete Sir Arthur Conan Doyle works.
