Hey Justin! I’m the author of Cyberfreak Debt and am looking to raise some more interest in the book (it’s already doing well on amazon). Please shelve it (or better yet purchase a copy!), or come along to the discussion linked below. The book is linked below also. Feel free to message me any time! Stu-man :-) ... @wonderboywriter on twitter
I just finished reading it the other day actually. It was really good especially since it goes more into the science of vampires. I was actually amazed at how different the book was to the movie, but I have to say the book is better. Did the version you read have all the short stories after I Am Legend?
Well Coach Jones, I like it a lot and since you like science fiction I think you'll like it too. Hubbard is not the best writer, but the story is entertaining and very interesting. The only thing that I can complain about it is that it starts to slow down a little bit when you get through 500 pages of it. But it picks back up later on. If you are in the mood for a good sci-fi story, than I would recommend reading it.
If you like listening, I'll loan you my Angela's Ashes on audio. I have read and listened to the book, and I think listening is better because Frank McCourt reads it himself.
Pathfinder is Orson Scott Card's brand new young adult novel. It came out about three weeks ago.
I really do need to talk with you - I'm realizing as I review your bookshelf that there are many books that I could "pick your brain" about, but I never get time during the day. For example, I started reading Snow Crash and I felt like the stupidest person alive. I got so lost within the first ten pages. I think it is one of those books I need to be taught. I have American Gods and Anansi Boys on my shelf to read, but I'm afraid they too will be over my head.
Didn't you like Teacher Man? I thought it was really good. I wonder if you listened to the one I gave Dennis? I think he had the abridged version, and it's not nearly as good as the unabridged. Have you read Angela's Ashes? I thought that was really wonderful. I have a question for you. But a quick digression - I just finished Orson Scott Card's Pathfinder. I thought it was good, actually I liked it a lot, but it dragged toward the end. Maybe I just didn't have the time to commit. Back to my question - I saw Piers Anthony on your shelf. Did you like his books? I have the first two on my "next to read" shelf in my room, and I'd love some feedback.
Perfect timing for me to check my notes! I don't use it "in class," but I use it with my students. They post reviews of the books they have read and communicate with eachother. My students LOVE it! How in the world did you get 676 books on your shelf already!!!! Watch out - your students will get on your case if you are missing a review of one...I've had students (not my own) send me notes asking me to post reviews of the books on my bookshelf so they can decide if they want to read them or not!
