Ready Player One

Ernest Cline

( 2011 ) ISBN: 9788876383441

Much like the 80s, the book started so so, had a great middle, and a rushed movie ending. The dystopian setting with the virtual reality escape made for a great back and forth. The social and economic commentary on corporations vs hackers was a bit too obvious. If you've played an MMPORPG, the virtual reality explanations will be a bit tacky, if not you'll be amazed by what the future holds. The ending felt a bit rushed, this would have made a better series, but it's an interesting and nostalgic read.

Best After

The Eighties

The Pleasure Of My Company

Steve Martin

Who knew Steve martin wrote books? Even better, who knew they were a pleasure to read. This book is light and feel good.

Rain Storm

Barry Eisler

When I read this it was the third and final book in the John Rain series, so there is a bit of a conclusion here.

Planet Of Adventure

Jack Vance

One of the best Sci-Fi adventure books you will ever read. Thoroughly immersive and enjoyable. Why isn't this book a movie yet?

The Illuminatus Trilogy

Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson

This book is difficult to describe since it has a dozen stories happening at the same time, all somehow connected. Basically take some classic conspiracy theories, mix in some philosophy, deep introspection on feminism, freedom, economics, reality, plus myth and you get this book.

Git Is Really Difficult To Use

Nov. 18, 2017

I'm coming to terms with the fact that git ( not Git Hub ) is very hard to use. At first I thought it was just hard for novice users. Then I I thought OK this isn't so bad, now I'm more convinced than ever that git is just hard to use.
