Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished the first Slings an Arrows book, which was somewhat disappointing.

Now I'm reading The Body Electric.

Just finished the first book in the Han Solo trilogy, The Paradise Snare. Today I'll be starting Book 2, The Hutt Gambit. Up on deck is Book 3, Rebel Dawn. Reminds me why I enjoyed Ann Crispin's books so much!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Leaving on a trip the day after Christmas so I picked up something short and sweet: Terrance Dicks' novelization, Doctor Who And The Abominable Snowmen. If I don't finish before I leave, I'll take it and Doctor Who And The Enemy of The World with me.

I finished Star Trek: Vanguard: In Tempest's Wake last night. I'm now reading Star Trek: The Next Generation: Immortal Coil.

The third book in the series, Judgment of Tears, is good, too.

At first I thought I was missing one, but over here, it looks like it's called Dracula Cha Cha Cha. I think I prefer the US title though. It's on the list of books to read

Yep, they're the same book. I probably should've listed the British title as well.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished 11.22.63 - mostly King's best book in years, more a candidate for "the great American novel" than anything else he's done, but it loses a point or two from what would have been an 11/10 for the utterly predictable obligatory "the present is now Hill Valley in BTTF Part II" sequence.

I think if I'd been editor, I'd have strongly recommended ending at Little Rock, maybe in the bus station, on Jake having a big decision to make about where he goes from there.

But, then, King's a rich legend and I'm a nobody whom no-one will work with twice, so probably best to ignore that opinion as it's probably wrong, and I'm the only one who can't see it.

Oh, one other thing I found odd was the number of apparent Britishisms used by the 1958-63 characters - fag for cigarette, for example - and I wonder if that's changes for the UK edition, or if they were actually common in the US back then
