That book was actually written by a guy named Lloyd Johnson.









Just kidding.

I finished Zoo Quest for a Dragon by David Attenborough which tells of his travels to Indonesia back in the 1950s in search of the Komodo Dragon.

I have started The Martian by Andy Weir. Good so far.

Re: What are you reading?

Finished the third Colossus novel last night.

This one, at least, had some comments on the frequent use of alcohol in the trilogy.

BTW: Should you ever want to read Colossus; don't bother with the second and third novel.

Re: What are you reading?

War of the Worlds
I bought the War of the worlds: Goliath DVD (it came out last week. Not bad at all. If you like anime and steampunk, you should watch it) and became curious about the original story. Not an easy read - many words I never heard before - but quite thrilling
