  • A.Merkison

    Re-reading Battle Royale for the 4th or 5th time now(though it's been several years since I last read it).
  • PitchGrim

    I'm reading the Dragon Factory. It's the second in a series of three.

    ooh that looks intriguing, i need a new book, hows the first in the series?
  • PitchGrim

    Patient Zero is the first. I read it a few years ago and it's probably one of the best books I've read. The Dragon Factory might be better but I haven't completed it just yet.



    Book description:
    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there's either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills... and there's nothing wrong with Joe Ledger's skills. And that's both a good, and a bad thing. It's good because he's a Baltimore detective that has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new taskforce created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can't handle. This rapid response group is called the Department of Military Sciences or the DMS for short. It's bad because his first mission is to help stop a group of terrorists from releasing a dreadful bio-weapon that can turn ordinary people into zombies. The fate of the world hangs in the balance....

    Haha its not.

    just started the "The Legend of Bagger Vance" by Steven Pressfield.

    I read Pressfield's "War of Art," which is an outstanding book on creativity, being a professional, and overcoming resistance.

    There is a movie coming out. Real B flick, called OSAMBIE sounds just like this book. The movie looks ridiculous but the book sounds good.

    Currently reading this. I mainly was interested in it because I grew up in Southern Indiana. The funny thing is I found out about it from a GQ must read list. It's pretty cool because its a bunch of really gruesome fictional short stories.
  • 8-bit ZOMBIE

    I listen to audio books while I work. Does that count?

    Currently:



    Stephen King + Time Travel = Happy Ross

    Probably my fav new book from him since the Dark Tower ended.

    Ross, I put off reading 11/22/63 for no reason other than it had the letters JFK on the cover :(

  • DrewGliever

    I've been reading a few pages of Dracula every week for the past couple months, but I blew through and finished The Hobbit in a few weeks, and now I'm working on the LOTR series.

    The copy of Dracula I have is awesome, every chapter has an illustration by Ben Templesmith (30 Days of Night).

    I loved Rant. I just finished Diary by Palaniuk. Not as good as Fight Club, but still great.
  • PitchGrim

    By the way Patient Zero is not about zombies. Its about a terrorist attack that uses a bio weapon that basically turns people into canibals. They're not the dead reborn or walking rotted flesh.

    Its Die Hard+Dawn of the Dead+Hellboy

    It's a very interesting read. Some of the torture techniques these guys use are amazingly disturbing but creative. I recommend it.

    I dunno, I felt like it was going to be a lame book if it had anything to do with John F. Kennedy. I'm weird.
  • 8-bit ZOMBIE

    Ahh, gotcha. Yeah, I wasn't overly excited with the plot synopsis when it came out. But I gave it a chance because I needed a new book to listen to during work and I'm glad I did. I wasn't super into some of his other newer books (Duma Key, Under The Dome, Full Dark, No Stars, etc) but this one has been great. Plus I'm a sucker for a good time travel tale.
