So Mr. Basehart, did you read any books recommended to you yet?

Yup.  I bought about 4 so far, but I've only read Storm Front (seeing as that one was the most recommended) - and I didn't enjoy it as much I'd hoped.  When I've finished with The Fabric of the Cosmos, I'll probaby give The Winter King a go.  I also have Factotum and an Edgar Allen Poe collection.

Oh here's a fantastic series to keep you busy: the Patrick O'Brien books, which I think start with Master and Commander but don't quote me on that. They're fantastic.

On a similar vein have I suggested the Flashman books?

Starting with Flashman and ending with Flashman on the March, splendid stuff.

A Stranger in a Strange Land


i thought it was interesting, though i read it a while ago....

oh and, baseheart, if you were the one to mention altered carbon and bring it to my attention, go you! great book

as tripe mentioned somewhere else, octavia butler is another good author.  anything by her would prob be good, though i've only read the parable of the sower and am reading blood child and other short stories...

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Again, Basehart, read any more of the recommended books?

I've read The Road.  :) 

And I'm too busy working on my movies to read right now.  Stop with the pressure!  ;D

Actually, I would prefer to lock this thread - if I had the ability to - because I now have way too many books and to read.  Mods? Tripe?
