    The way of Shadow - Night Angel Trilogy are rather good. I recommended the first book to a friend of mine and he was rather chuffed with the story.

    Oblivion: Stories by David Foster Wallace

    Nothing to do with the video game. "With the exception of Don DeLillo, no writer better depicts the crushing effect of the information age on the soul."

    If you liked Shantaram, do NOT do a GIS for the author.

    Ruins it.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I was going to give some advice then I saw you are about to give up on Snow Crash...

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Over half way through The Shining and about to give up, way too dark for my current mindset. Not the horror aspects but the psychology of Jack is just oppressive to read at times.

    Any upbeat/fun/sci fi book recommendations? Love Philip K Dick, Joe Haldemen, Haruki Murukami, that sort of thing.

    I'm papercaves on the Twitter. This is mah Tumblr and I'm ulysseys31 on PSN :D
