Jack London, The Sea-Wolf.

Great book. I think I underestimated this author.

"Just Six Numbers" by Martin Rees. From BN because I am too lazy to think for myself this morning: "The genesis of the universe elegantly explained in a simple theory based on just six numbers by one of the world's most renowned astrophysicists."

Just finished Pattern Recognition by William Gibson. I've talked with people who claim his prose is a bit tiring for them, but I parse it like my native language. I wonder what type he is?

William Gibson is known as a science fiction writer and this both is and isn't science fiction. Usually science fiction takes a technology and kind of extrapolates a situation from it to explore its implications. William Gibson takes the current state of affairs and extrapolates a very science fictiony scenario from it. An internet forum is central to the plot and iNtuition is probably the main character here, so it's pretty damned TypoC relevant.

Just started reading Making Money by Terry Pratchett. It's actually my first encounter with Pratchett. How I've managed to evade him is astounding...well, knowing myself...not really. Haven't really formed an opinion on the book yet, I'm only in for a few pages.

Although, I like the main protagonist's name - Moist von Lipwig - it reminds me of Lipton tea bags. Used tea bags. I guess I have formed some kind of an image of him, a tea-baggy image (it makes sense in my head). So, I chuckled when I read a description of him in Wikipedia - "Human with no notable physical traits." Lipton tea bag it is. Used. Parading around in a golden suit. :laugh:

Now reading Flyboys by James Bradley

Probably one of the best books I've stumbled upon in recent months

Very objective, very philosophical analysis of war and human brutality. It apparently has a plot centered around 9 downed bomber crewmen (George H. W. Bush being one of them) in the Pacific island of Chichi-jima. I'm about 1/3rd through and so far it reads like a fantastic, concise, and compelling history lesson; the story hasn't even begun and I'm already completely enthralled.
