I would describe myself as an obsessive reader from an early age. I’m looking for some new material to read, and I’m sure others are too. Would you mind sharing some things you have read recently, or some thoughts on them? All genres welcome, technical stuff as well… especially implant related.
I recently read Kallocain by Karin Boye. Brilliant book.
I’m currently gnawing throught The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus. I find it a relatively challenging read, not for reading after 8 hours of work even though it has just 120 pages…
And @Pilgrimsmaster, I’m not sure if this is the right place to post this. Not really implant related
The Chants of Maldoror by Lautreamont (might be Maldoror’s Chants as well, dunno the english title…) - great and strange and f*ed up book, I just love it.
Anything by Clive Barker or Lovecraft, for entertainment
So I really loved those Chanur books because it has a collection of alien species that have MUCH different philosiphies and origins than each other. All the characters follow the precepts of their own species, they’re not just aliens whith human motives, and the detail is incredible, especially after the first one.
The second set of scifi you might like is the Troy Rising series, but all aliens have essentially human motives. Still, a good series.
Live Free or Die.
The Hot Gate.
@anon7067117, you’ll probably understand this better than most. I have to actually limit what I read, cause once I start, I can’t won’t shan’t put it down till the last page is turned. I never start a book on a workday / night. Sucks when you finish just in time to watch the sun come up, shower and head for the daily grind with 0 rest.
Yeah, I completely understand. I always laugh when people say that ‘I should just read something before bed to fall asleep’
I have currently strictly limited consumption of (thick) fantasy/scifi books - if I pick one up, it becomes my complete focus for like 3 days and destroys my life a little
