I'm reading Deeper, the 2nd book in the Tunnels series. Dang it's a huge book, over 600 pages and there's still like 4 more books in the series. Imagine how big the others must be.

Actually I just googled the other books. Deeper is the longest one it seems.

Or, if written by a normal person: "How Nintendo fixed an industry crashed by complacent Americans, happily took the money you threw at it, and created the great cultural icons of the 20th century"

In Russian this book is called "Game Over: How Nintendo conquered the world". Also in this edition there is an exclusive introduction by Alexey Pajitnov.

@R2D21999 Ooh, good choice. I must get around to reading the fourth one. "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine...."

I would recommend you (regardless of who "you" are) read the rather excellent Gone series by Michael Grant. It's like Lord of the Flies meets Stephen King .

just finished reading the divergent series was happy with it. I would read it again. Will not watch the movies because my head cannon most of the characters are like chicago a mix of races and people and I can see from the movie trailers they went with the they are all white thing.

Right now im reading Ready Player One By Ernest Cline.
Its based in the future about a VRMMO that becomes a second life to everyone. The main creator of the VRMMO, the OASIS, James Halliday dies and leaves a guest to win all of his money. Its really good with a lot of pop culture references. Recommend to EVERYONE!

Wolves of the Calla -Stephen King
The deeper I go into this series, the more I love it. You have all these things that seemingly aren't related, and suddenly there's significance to it. As well as that, Roland's ka-tet literally walks out of his world (because things are disintegrating, something's wrong with the Dark Tower) and into the world of The Stand, (and then out of it because there's huge holes) and a certain wizard makes a reappearance from Eye of the Dragon, and if I'm not mistaken I swear I clearly saw It hiding in there somewhere. Then there's something about the wizard of oz and you should all read this series because it's freaking amazing ok bye

I'm going to be reading Cold Comfort Farm, by Stella Gibbons. I've heard enough about it, that I wanted to try reading it, and see if it was any good. I'm also reading Murder on the Links, by Agatha Christie. It's a good short story, so far. I'm also reading a collection of H.P. Lovecraft stories. They are all pretty good.

I'm reading An Utterly Exasperated History of Modern Britain or 60 years of making the same stupid mistakes as always by John O'Farrell, the sequel to An Utterly Impartial History of Britain or 2000 years of upper-class idiots in charge.

Finished Deeper, a good read and great twist in the end.

Book I'm reading now is the last one to the Alex Rider series which is called Scorpia Rising. Should be good.

@R2D21999 Once you've finished that (Absolutely great book, by the way.), there's a Yassen Gregorovich prequel, Russian Roulette. Have you ever read any Charlie Higson books? I think you'd like them.

I'm planning on reading after this one, either that, Free Fall, or the Fall of Five... that is if the person that has it will return it.

Have you ever read any Charlie Higson books?


*googles* Are you talking about the Enemy series? Or the Young Bond series? I haven't read either.

Both are good, but The Enemy is probably better. Children Vs Zombie apocalypse scenario. I think I already mentioned Michael Grant's Gone series to you before, which are also excellent.

Kinda sounds like the Gate Keepers series. Hopefully it'll be just as good if not better.

I haven't read his Young Bond series, but the Enemy is definitely a worthwhile read. That entire series kept me occupied for days, which is a relatively long time for me. I suggest reading it in this order: The Dead, the Enemy, the Fear, and The Sacrifice. The first two are interchangeable, but The Dead came out first. If you don't like it I'll hit you in the face, R2 ^u^
