Shift by Hugh Howey

Shift Omnibus (Silo, #2) (Wool, #6-8) - Hugh Howey

Oh, I loved this book. I loved Wool for it's higher pace story-telling, but Shift I loved just as much for the ingenuity of the story development. So far the series is my favorite in the post-apocalyptic/dystopian genre.

P.S. I truly wish this series were made into a movie.

A Princess of Mars

A Princess of Mars - Edgar Rice Burroughs The most astonishing thing about this book remains the fact that it has been first published in 1912.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest: 50th Anniversary Edition

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest: 50th Anniversary Edition - Ken Kesey, Robert Faggen This was definitely a very complicated and heavy read. From the complexities of morality of the mental patient care to exploitation of one's authority/power, this book strolled right past all my expectations even though I have seen the movie before reading it. The movie, I realize now--although is nicely done--does not do this novel justice. The novel is so convoluted that upon conclusion of it my mind was racing from one idea to another trying to understand the characters and their actions. An honestly, the book was emotionally draining. Even though it was not particularly graphic, it was definitely narrated in a way that I emerged with a feeling of being being hollowed out of sound thought pattern. It is absolutely not your easy afternoon read.

If I Knew You Were Going To Be This Beautiful, I Never Would Have Let You Go

If I Knew You Were Going To Be This Beautiful, I Never Would Have Let You Go - Judy Chicurel For a person who was not brought up in the US let alone born in the 70's, some of the references were wasted, and I was quite skeptical of how genuine the references to their lives truly were (or if they were exaggerated). However, I was generally surprised that I liked this book as much as I did. "Sex, drugs, and (not so much) rock'n'roll" are the major part of the book, along with the glimpse into the lives of the young veterans coming back from Vietnam. It is an interesting take on the coming of age genre of books which, I think, is suitable for teen/young adult as well as adult readers.
I was, frankly, disappointed in the conclusion of the book. The occasional jumps into the future/past events just to give us perspective of the characters' lives ended up being a bit confusing.

Wool Omnibus (Silo, #1)

Wool Omnibus (Silo, #1) - Hugh Howey I loved this book.
It was, if not _the_ best dystopian books, one of the best modern dystopian books I have read. Full of action/adventures.
I wouldn't say that the idea is brand new, but the development of the idea is very well done.

Последнее желание (Ведьмак, #1)

Последнее желание (Ведьмак, #1) - Евгений Вайсброт, Andrzej Sapkowski One advice for anyone setting out to read this book!
There is no point in reading it unless you are planning to read the whole series. So be prepared.
