came across a book saga recently that i haven't read since out of primary school °_°
David feintuch, the Nick Seafort Saga
Haven't read it for about 8 years, although i still find the story compelling. Its based around Nick Seafort, and how an Alien race appear, attracted to the engines of the Navys capital ships. These Fish resembling Aliens can survive in vacuum, and attack a few of the vast Capital ships of mankind.
gonna read it through a second time ^^

A clokwork orange, by Anthony Burgess.

It seems that I hitted a desire to read all-time classics... first farenheit 451, then 1984 and now a clokwork orange... still, they're all great books, if you like the black side of human nature :P

anyway, going back to the book: It was a great read, although a bit uneasy at times as the author wrote many words in a "slang" he founded, Nadsat. But you get used to it in some time. It's basically about the life of a young sociopath who finds great enjoyment in producing pain to others. There's, of course, a turning point, but that's the crucial part of this novel, so I'm not gonna spoil it for you. Anyway, if you decide to read, make sure you the version with 21 chapters, as in some the last one has been stripped (specially in the US, hence the different ending in the movie than in the book, if you seen the movie and then read the book or the other way round)

Do you think the book is better or worse with the last ending?

I think it's worse, dtd. The twenty chapter (US) version is perfect. I read the 21 chapter one, saw the movie, thought that was a heaps better ending, then read about the two versions and ****, and yeah... The 21st chapter is kinda lame.

1984 By George Orwell

an all-time classic novel that somehow had evaded my grasp up until now. I mistake I quickly mended. Well... I'm speechless. It's an awesome book, that for ones doesn't end happily. It's about the struggle of a man to evade a system that is all-controlling, even the thoughts of thier individuales. But for how long could he evade the thought police?
Well, an excellent read, highly recommended.
