What are you reading? (The thread about what you are reading)
« on: Fri, 04 January 2019, 13:49:02 »
Since 461 days have passed since this thread (https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=80900.0) was updated, I figured I'd start a new topic.

Last summer, I read the F@gles (GH won't let me spell his name without censoring....) translations of both The Iliad and The Odyssey by Homer. Out of curiosity, I am currently reading the Wishbone adaptation of The Odyssey by Joanne Mattern since it is the version I read as a kid. It is a very simplified take on the story, and it leaves out a lot of details. It is an easy read, and it's ok for a recap of the story. I've been reading it before bed as a way to increase my sleep hygiene (instead of going to bed right after being on the computer or watching TV).

I've liked The Odyssey since I was a kid because of this book (and the Wishbone episode and videogame based on it) though I never appreciated it fully until I read an actual translation.

The Iliad was harder to understand and not as interesting. It had a good moral, but it took more analysis to grasp it, and the story relies more on other stories in Greek literature than does The Odyssey in my opinion.

I have a bunch of other Wishbone books that I never read, so I'm wondering if I should bother reading them now or just read the actual classics they are based on at this point in my life.
Maybe they're waiting for gasmasks and latex to get sexy again.

The world has become a weird place.

only thing i read before was mangas while going to work and back. Last few years i started reading Chinese web novels, Wuxia novels. It's like love at first sight. I love reading them and very much enjoy whole world and concept. Been reading them on Wuxiaworld and i very much recommend you all if you even want to start reading chinesee fantasy stuff you can start there. Most novels are translated on daily bases and list of novels is long and for everyone's tastes.

One of the most frightening books that I have ever encountered.

Superb and must-reading for anybody who cares about the future of America.

I read mostly sci-fi and fantasy, which I buy mostly at flea markets .. and I buy everything that I can find. (except odd books in the middle of series)
The advantages of that is part the price, but also that I get a lot of things that I wouldn't have sought out otherwise.

Right now, I am in the middle of Anne Rice's "Pandora". A 2000-year old vampire tells her origin story: about how she had grown up and become a vampire during the Roman Empire.

Almost done with Sandworms of Dune--there are some seriously ****ed up scenes in the books that follow Dune Messiah (just a friendly warning).

The language is not the same (I guess that's normal for 2K+ years and different authors), though it is neat to get some Butlerian Jihan backstory along with a continuation of Leto II's Golden Path.

Recently I've been obsessed with the Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss, I'm reading the second book now and really digging the series. Hopefully the next book is in the horizons.

I've got Cixin Liu's Remembrance of Earth's Past trilogy's second and third book, first three books of John Scalzi's Old Man's War, Forever War by Joe Haldeman and some Brandon Sanderson on order.

Tons of stuff to read but I'm hoping to get started on Sanderson's "magnus opus" I suppose, The Stormlight Archive series when the next book drops.

I just picked up House of Leaves. Yes I am late to the show but a YouTuber I like called Night Mind is doing a whole thing on it and I want to know what is going on.

After that, I intend on diving into "The WoW Diary", a book I backed about how World of Warcraft came to be through development by a programmer at the time.

The massive library that is "The Expanse" novel series (the very same one the show is based on) is gathering dust but on my list to finish before Summer...

I'm set! I hope.

I read that when it came out and was very moved by it.

I should consider a re-read now to see how it aged through multiple decades.

It's surprising how much Gibson got right, even 30 years ago. It's also refreshing to see the origins of the cyberpunk aesthetic as we know it -- so many shows/movies today are just copying (Altered Carbon for one).

I'm moving onto Count Zero now and trying to finish the full Sprawl series soon-ish (tm)

I'm halfway through The Lies of Locke Lamora. So far I've been really enjoying it, although somehow from the synopsis I expected a different, less gruesome story.

I really like how the book has been written, the back and forth between flashbacks and current events has been done many times but I thought it was really well executed. For example, if I were to compare it to Mark Lawrence's Red Sister, that I read recently, it's implemented in a much better and more fluid manner. I'm not much of a book critic but the dialogue in the book jumps as something that really tickles my fancy.

I've been reading China Marine, which is the sequel of sorts to With The Old Breed. It's not quite as interesting as the first book, but it's an easy read and it's interesting to read about a time in history not often mentioned, the occupation of China immediately after WWII.

East of Eden. I learned alot about people and why they are motivated to do the crazy things they do.

I also learned that there are people who are just straight up rotten. Can't be fixed. I think it's chapter 3 where he describes Kate as a monster, comparing that some people are missing an arm or a leg. Kate it missing something in her mind which makes her evil.

I'm only reading it because my English class is making us do a book project and my school library didn't have anything interesting to me (I'm really not into books) but I wanted to look more into The Elder Scrolls lore, so I picked up The Elder Scrolls: The Infernal City by Greg Keyes. It's pretty interesting so far. Not anything that's completely blown me away but it's definitely a very good read if you just want to get more immersed in the universe of The Elder Scrolls like I did.

(I'm really not into books)


This is a sad, but all too common, commentary on the modern world.

I guess? I've just never really cared, though I haven't read many books either. Maybe I just haven't read the right ones? I did enjoy reading The Great Gatsby a few years ago for school. I thought the details and stuff were awesome and it wasn't super corny and cliché like the other books they usually make us read.

Of course less people are reading these days, but I don't really see it as a negative. Maybe I'm just biased because I'm young and wasn't around when reading was more of a popular thing.
