Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

^Why does it have to be the "last" time you enjoy them? I mean, it's all equally unreal whether it's consistent with the movies or not, so why should consistency matter to whether you find it enjoyable to read the story? I mean, did people stop watching or reading 2001: A Space Odyssey after the real year 2001 arrived and contradicted the events of the movie/book? Did libraries throw out all their copies of 1984 once 1984 arrived? Is War of the Worlds impossible to enjoy now that we know there's no civilization on Mars? And those are things that are contradicted by reality. Who cares if one work of fiction is contradicted by another work of fiction? If it was a good story before, it'll still be a good story.
