Probably the weakest Discworld book I've read... not to say it's bad though.

I have this Kaku book lying around, forgot which one.

Will start reading it soon, that guy really blows my mind...the scope with which he thinks is amazing. There was a clip of his on youtube that was quite phenomenal in showing how self-important the human race is. Great stuff.

Awesome book. 2001 was a lot to live up to, but Clarke put out some pretty savage sequels.


Bored the shit out of me. I'm debating whether or not I'm going to finish the series.

I'm not sure how you take something like this seriously. Not trying to be a dick or anything, just wondering what's convincing about these sort of arguments.

Just finished Hitch-hikers guide... was pretty enjoyable. I just wish they had some sort of
'all in one' anthology of the series so you wouldn't have to go out and get all five books.

Now I'm either going to get started on Dune, or Hyperion. Which one, fellers?

That's what I'm trying to ask him, whether he likes it for the subject matter/writing style or if he actually buys into it.

That's right. It was all part of my plan from the start to indoctrinate you with subliminal messages in Svankmajer films, hence my incessant plugging. And I would have gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling conspiracy theory readers.

There is. It's called 'The Ultimate Hitchhikers Guide'.

That sounds retarded. I think I remember Roger Penrose bashing this in "The Road to Reality".

I honestly feel reading some of Dostoyevsky's work as a kid changed my life. Cathartic, vital and intense.
