Anyone reading anything good these days? I'm about halfway through China Mieville's
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embassytown) and it is great. The narrative is a little slow going the the concept about alien language is utterly fascinating. If anyone is reading or has read this book, I'd love to talk about it with you.
Other good books that I recently read:
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_Royale). It's a more interesting (and gruesome) precursor to
The Hunger Games
which is itself derived from
Lord of the Flies
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watership_down). I'd been meaning to read this for years and finally got around to it. Wow. I guess it is young adult fiction, but what a great story and great characters.
Koji Suzuki's Ring Series:
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loop_(novel)). I haven't seen enough of the movie
to tell, but the book is way, way different from what little I have to form a comparison.
Arthur Clarke's collection of short stories,
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Sentinel_(anthology)). I love hard science fiction, Clarke in particular.
So, what are your picks?
