Books! - Max - 02-14-2015

Place to talk about what you're reading, what you've read, what you plan to read, and everything else to do with that.


As I had £20 worth of book money I picked Halo, The Thursday War (sequel to Glasslands) and Metro 2033.
I have a lot of science to read too, however.

Nice one, I enjoyed both of them

Son of a Witch, by Gregory Maguire.

Kind of alternative Oz story, set around the time good ol' Dorothy melted the Witch. Only a few chapters in, but actually quite a good read. Never heard of it before, my sister lent it to me t'other day.

Flashman & the Tiger - George McDonald Fraser

2nd to last in the series, I'd highly recommend them to anyone with a interest in 19th Century history & a sense of humour! Basically, written as memoirs of Harry Flashman, Victorian Military Hero who infact, isn't much of a hero, rather a self-confessed paltroon whose only talents are 'languages & fornication' Wink

I can really see how Metro 2033 was so gamifiable. Artyom just picked up an optional but coincidentally useful sidequest, due to his special "condition" and successfully negotiated a reward for the completion of said quest. GG.
