I've just read Survivors by Terry Nation. It laughably reads like a post-apocalyptic jolly for the middle and upper class nobs and snobs who live in the countryside of the Home Counties of England who were fortunate enough to have survived a plague that wiped out 99% of the worlds population.

I concluded after reading the book that the author has to either be a nob or snob of middle or upper class origin living in the countryside of one of the Home Counties who wishes a plague on everyone else on the planet who isn't like him. In other words, he's a wanker.

Ha, sorry. Seth Godin I do follow closely, no clue about the other guy.

So far this year I've read "The Wind Through the Keyhole" by Stephen King, and I'm currently reading "Robopocalypse" by Daniel H. Wilson. I don't read much science fiction even though I like the genre generally. The book's good so far, but nothing mind-blowing, even though some of the quotes in the book have compared him to early Michael Crichton.

i have tried to read that a bunch of times but in the end i just up & quit. it's probably because that's just too close to where i live (and what to get away from). ha! but no, seriously, it's supposed to be this great fucking book and i never get much past the religion thing at the beginning. "this here man has had congress with a goat" etc. it's funny but soon after i drift away into sleep, then forgetfulness.

Good choice, if you like the literary western check out Deadwood by Pete Dexter, even better than the series and really not at all related.

Me too!

We should start a book club.


It's rare for me to thoroughly dislike a book, so way to go Cormac.

i know it's a great book and i should just persevere. when i move out of the fucking american southwest and don't feel like the book is happening just outside my window i probably will. it will be "exotic," and all. right now it's just like hearing my neighbors speak, just with a better vocabulary ha ha ha. oh...

What did you so thoroughly dislike about it?

Thanks! I've been considering whether to read that. Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove is another good one and again far better than the TV series.

Blimey! Maybe your local authority should capitalise by opening a Blood Meridian theme park for all us Europeans to come and buy our souvenir scalps and have our photo taken with 'the Judge'.
