I haven't read anything by him, but I do have "Seveneves" on my to be read list (don't remember why). Which of his books would you recommend most?Started the new Neal Stephenson novel, "Fall; or, Dodge In Hell" this weekend. As with much (most?) of his writing, it's amazingly on the money about how I feel about the current state of things.
Seveneves is really good, if you like disaster books and/or orbital mechanics.I haven't read anything by him, but I do have "Seveneves" on my to be read list (don't remember why). Which of his books would you recommend most?
Cool. Will read thru this shortly. I'm actually in the process of going thru all of Murakami's, Hemingway and Carlos Castenada's catalogues.
Have I pimped this here? One of my favourite books, actually need to buy myself a new copy, lent mine to an bird and never saw it again.
It's disturbing.I haven't heard of this one before, but it looks intriguing.
You have BM one. That’s all that matters.I'm working my way through Cormac McCarthy's catalogue. **** gets pretty dark though so I've been alternating McCarthy with Steinbeck. Pretty interesting contrast between the two. Steinbeck can say beautiful things in few words that anyone can understand. McCarthy can say beautiful/brutal things in ways that make you think "how the **** did someone come up with that??" Anyone else read anything from these guys recently?
So far my McCarthy rankings (haven't read The Orchard Keeper, Outer Dark, or Cities of the Plain yet) are
1. Blood Meridian
3. The Crossing
4. Child of God
5. No Country for Old Men
6. The Road
7. All the Pretty Horses
