Agreed, although the manga is better. Gory words cannot convey raw psychological effect as well as gory images.

Finished Halo: Silentium, was pretty good. Answered a lot and brought up more questions as well.

Now reading The Last Wish: Introducing the Witcher, too bad there's only 3 of the series in English, with the latest barely just coming out.

The Hydrogen Sonata by Iain M Bank. It make me sad than it's the last of ''the Culture'' series, some of the best SF book than I ever read.

BTW, waiting to reveal the full name of the Mistake Not... was a great move.

Interview with a vampire~

It was pretty good but, I'm not a fan of how anne rice portrayed vampires (She made them better than twilight did though imo)

Gonna start reading Blood song By cat adams.

So in honour of Tom Clancy's passing I recently re-read Red October

Additionally, since a Canadian went and won the latest nobel prize in literature .. how can I not go pick up the collected works of her short stories!?

Almost done with Berlin Diary, liked it so much that I purchase William Shirer's The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich his 1000+ page history on Nazi Germany.

Also bought Malala Yousafzai's autobiography I am Malala

I mainly read non fiction and autobiographies. There was a stage when I really enjoyed fiction, but I've since found new mediums for storytelling.

I'm currently in-between 3 books:
1) The Selfish Gene - Richard Dawkins
2) Man's Search for Meaning - Viktor Frankl
3) Surely You're Joking, Mr Feynman! - Richard Feynman

Just finished Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express. This might be my favorite Hercule Poirot novel that I have read so far.

However, out of all the Agatha Christie novels, And Then There Were None and The Man in the Brown Suit are my absolute favorites.

So far, I have read:
  • Murder on the Orient Express
  • After the Funeral
  • The Man in the Brown Suit
  • Poirot Investigates
  • Murder on the Links
  • The Mysterious Affair at Styles
  • The Big Four
  • And Then There Were None
  • Lord Edgware Dies
  • The ABC Murders
  • Third Girl

Recently read The Gun by C.J. Chivers, which is a fascinating look at the AK-47's history and the derp that was M16 procurement.

"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again."

Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. Mmmm! That was a great read. I had a lot of time yesterday, and I just planned to read a bit of the book, but... I became so obsessed I just read it all The atmosphere was built amazingly well. A haunting book, one that I am going to re-read at some point for sure.

Well, it's a light novel, not a book, but Log Horizon, Volume 1 to Volume 4.

That said, for more conventional works, I've been reading The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors, as well as Ark Royal by Christopher Nuttall.

On my "To-Read" list will be Partners in Command and Sua Sponte.

1984 - one of the books I enjoyed this year. I enjoyed it so much I finished it by the deadline. But yeah, the nice worldbuilding, the way the inventions and devices fit together, the way how Orwell masterfully executes it, and the decent romance scenes, won me over.
