  1. The general consensus has always been that the books are better than their screen versions. I almost always agree. But I thought it would be interesting for those of us who love to read discuss where we feel the opposite. Two notable exceptions for me are The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones. I remember being in high school when LotR was out and taking the world by storm. I had a friend who loved to read, probably even more than myself and even she agreed that the books were a slog at times and you'd be better off just watching the movies. After making a halfhearted attempt the the first book, I took her advice. Maybe one day I'll give the books another go, but I haven't gotten there yet. Hell, even though I enjoyed the movies, I haven't seen them in years. My husband has never seen them and we keep saying we're going to sit down and watch the Extended Editions(which I do own on blu ray), but we haven't done it yet because they're so damn long. As for GoT, I did read the first three books in the series, but Martin is too long on descriptions and his books are a chore to read at times. I gave up on A Feast for Crows. And the man takes too long to write a book, so I've just stuck with the show. It's not perfect by any means, but it's overall provided me with some damn good entertainment. So what say you, fellow book lovers? Do you agree with me or not and do you have other books that have been outdone by the big or small screen?
  2. @CayceG Recently finished the audiobook. It was recommended by GayceG in the INF treaty thread. It acts as a commission report on a 2020 war between North Korea and the USA. In it North Korea nukes South Korea, Japan, New York, Jupiter Florida, and Northern Virgina. My only complaints are there isnt much info on Japan and South Korea. It was also really short audio book was about 6 hours and a half. Back to Mechanicum I go.
  3. Let's get this thread going again! I recently finished: The Vory: Russia's Super Mafia by Mark Galeotti and Master of War by David Gilman Just now starting Master of War: Defiant Unto Death and also started The Storm Before the Storm: The Beginning of the End of the Roman Empire by Mike Duncan @CastlevaniaNut18
  4. So I have a stack of credits to burn before I cancel my subscription... I have the Wheel of Time series to listen to so probably can avoid the Fantasy genre unless there is something I NEED to listen to. I would like a Science Fiction series to listen to but beyond that I'm open to all sorts of suggestions.

    @legend Have you heard of this guy? Watched a interview with Jeremy Bailenson on C-Span and he has some interesting ideas about VR like cutting down on travel for short meetings for example.
