    Sorry for double posting.

    I highly recommend people to read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. At first i thought that the story was going to be exactly like Battle Royale as the setting is sort of similar. But i was wrong. It was a very enjoyable read and i couldn't bring myself to put the book down.

    This book is SO good. It was one of first books in a number of years that I read from start to finish in one sitting. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a gamer and or likes popular culture stuff, or dystopian or science fiction.

    ^ to the books trailer, as that is a trending thing for authors to do now...

    There are a couple reviews by the author, but I dont know if they have spoilers on them or not.


    Another book I would recommend that I finished is Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami. A Japanese surrealism/magical realism author, his novels reside comfortably in the uncanny valley at times. Often referencing classical and modern literature in addition to theoretical concepts, he books are both compelling and challenging. He has published a number of books and, odds are, available at your local library I would imagine.

    Another book that is short, and fun, is The Drive-in by Joe Lansdale. Might be harder to come by.

    I've started re-reading the Kane Chronicles.
    I forgot the story, so I can't read the second book. Gotta read the first book again.

    I recently downloaded Grilled Ninjas With Cheese from the Kindle market..just because the title is awesome. I've read a little bit of it so far, and the section I'm on now is talking about someone making a grilled cheese with Virgin Mary's face on it that sold on ebay for $28,000. It's a satire. The guy relates how stupid people are from that situation to the fact that he keeps getting mysterious cuts on him. And as sarcasm, he calls it Ninjitis..a case where a ninja follows you around and cuts you when you're not looking.

    Started reading Young Bond. Not sure what to think of it at the moment.

    Kinda feels like Alex Rider. Hope it's more like Cherub.

    I recommend anything from Jasper Fforde for sure!

    Love Shades of Grey (not Fifty Shades), as it's something I have wanted to read in a long time, but I do like Thursday Next (his main series) and The Last Dragonslayer too.

    Since I've started working and it's a fair trek away (about an hour and a half on 2 buses) I've had chance to get through a couple of books that I've had on my backlog:

    Game of Thrones
    Yea it's great.

    Metro 2033
    Really interesting setting. The main character is a bit of an idiot though and not incredibly likable. The book is also really awkwardly translated which could make it hard to read at times.

    The Witcher: Blood of Elves
    Good, I think I enjoyed the short story collection more (The Last Wish) since it had more moments of Geralt just being a boss. At least the translation was good. Shame it's part of a series and the 2nd books English release date keeps getting pushed back.

    At the moment I've started Battle Royale which I've had for an age but never got around to reading. Haven't really been reading it much though, kinda end up just cocking around on my phone.

    I while ago I read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It was a nice book. I figured I'd read the sequels but I just haven't been able to find them in my library.

    I was thinking of watching the movies... but meh.
