Dax Posted August 28, 2017 Share Posted August 28, 2017 Hey my last post was on the last page. Things have changed since then, I read a lot more often now, though still not a ridiculous amount. I finished Tripwire, it was pretty neat-o, and I read another of his books, which was Die Trying, I think? I've got A Wanted Man on the bookshelf ready to go, but I've been delving into other things. I enjoy Jack Reacher books, for however simple they are. Since then, however, I've also reeeeeead: Both The Last Wish and Sword of Destiny, the Witcher books. Brilliant short story collections, which is good for someone with a low attention span. Some really, really fantastic short stories which also gave me a greater appreciation for the games. Intending to get the actual novels when they're cheap and I'm willing to burn some cash.Both 1984 and Animal Farm. Understanding a million 1984 references now, I'd seen the movie years ago, but forgotten near all of it. Really gripping story, and actually caught me off guard in regards to the ending (I assumed it as a possibility, but never thought how it'd go down). I read through Animal Farm in a morning, just a solid, short hit of goodness.Read Matthew Reilly's Scarecrow. I think he's an Aussie author. I wasn't fond of it. It all seemed a little silly. Something over the top led into something ridiculous and over the top which led into something even more ridiculous and over the top. Too much action, not enough actual story for my liking.Read James Patterson's Toys. Also great for short attention spans, each chapter is like three pages. Smashed through it really quick because of that. Only problem was the ending, which defeated the entire purpose of the story, or so I thought, or maybe that's what James was aiming for.And the Hobbit. I've yet to see the second/third movie, but I have no idea how they stretched it into three. Great story, though. Love that the narrator (Is it Bilbo? Or Gandalf? I wasn't sure) just sorta talks to you at points, telling you that they're gonna go back and give gold to the eagles after they win the battle. Reading Girl with the Dragon Tattoo now. I've seen the movies (Both US and Swedish), but I can't for the life of me remember how it all goes down, which is fantastic. #KERR2016/17/18/19/20/21. #rpgformod Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
