Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon

What a delightful story from start to finish. Sure I find the characterisation of Asriel to be questionable, flip flopping on occasion, but the cast as a whole is absolutely wonderful. Really deep and rich in its storytelling, its easy to lose hours to this phenom of a book.

Brilliant read although profoundly odd.

The Fall | Albert Camus
Mehso-so

There is some wonderful stuff in here that really cuts through to the easence of human existence, but there is also a pretention around some of the later pages that made it a bit of a battle to keep reading after he loses his vices and debauchery. Maybe that says a lot about me...

Fantastically woven short stories into the main narrative. Basically chaucer with a hawking drive in space man. Its wonderful. Will pick up fall of hyperion after a break.

Perhaps if you know you are insane, then you are not insane.

Sometimes the appropriate response to reality is to go insane.

It pays to be obvious. Especially if you have a reputation for subtlety.

First delve into the world of cyberpunk and what a ride! The characters are perhaps never quite developed much beyond the scope of their immediate surroundings but they work in unison for a plot which sweeps you through networks and worlds seamlessly. Full of tricks and mystery, id highly recommend this book to anyone.
