What book are you reading?
« on: June 28, 2019, 08:59:47 pm »
You know, most people think gamers are people in their 20's who live in their parents basement drinking Mountain with anger issues. What most people don't know is that most gamers are actually well read individuals. Also most of us gamers have switched to Diet Mountain Dew like adults! (Kudos to anyone who gets that reference.)

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep
by Phillip. K. Dick
The inspiration for the hit movie Blade Runner, I felt this was quite a good read! I will say some of the more adult content was rather unneeded, even as it somewhat served it's purpose for character development. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a good summer sci-fi read.

Video games can bring people together or keep them from society. Your choice but trust me, it's better to hang with other people who share your values and interests then to become an introvert. Never let a game with fake prophecy fake killing, and fake weapons become more than a game of pretend. Never let them influence your real life actions. Real killing is wrong but a video game is just that if you keep it that way.
Keep Calm and Game On!

The Executioner #117: Vendetta in Venice, ghostwritten by Peter Leslie. I don't have much of an opinion on it yet since I just started it, but a bad guy used a Colt Cobra revolver so that was cool I guess. My previous read was The Executioner #33: Wednesday's Wrath, which was okay, nothing special.

Gamers are also the most oppressed people on the planet. I'm a gamer myself and am constantly under attack by Gamergate, Encyclopedia Dramatica, Kiwi Farms, the hacker known as 4chan, my bill collectors and John Madden. Also that bit*h Veronica won't f**k me even though I'm such a nice guy. Gamers, rise up!

I agree and relate there! Additionally many video games have interesting dialogue/lore in the gameplay too. Glad you liked the book.

I finished Goldfinger by Ian Fleming earlier this evening. It's a real, real slow burn and oh my god that golf game would cure anyone's insomnia. The second half was much better and overall I enjoyed the book.

Haven't started it yet, but I finally got The Executioner #1: War Against the Mafia, as well as some books in Edgar Rice Burroughs' Pellucidar series.

After watching the popular Netflix series You, I decided to read a few of the books mentioned. I started reading Crime and Punishment by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky. To be completely honest, I expected it to be extremely boring when I first started reading. After reading a few chapters, I was hooked. I learned how interesting the book really was and why so many people reccomended it. Crime and Punishment discusses the moral dilemmas the main character faces before he kills a pawnbroker for her money, as well as the guilt and fear he has to deal with after killing her. He has to fight his internal feelings of horror as well as societal pressures. The book is a deep analysis of society and our class system. Crime and Punishment was written to highlight the desperate measures people are forced to take due to poverty. I would definitely recommend Crime and Punishment to anyone interested in learning about moral judgment and the human condition.

I am reading hare kon manga at mangazuki and This is my favorite manga.
