Thread: What are you reading now?

    I am currently working my way through The Time Machine by H.G Wells. It's good - I am liking it.

  2. #2192
    John B. Keane - "Irish Stories."

  3. #2193
    I just finished The Picture of Dorian Gray and Fahrenheit 451 (I was teaching an English class and thought I better bone up on the books I made them read) and now I'm reading Stephen King's The Outsider.

    Love Bradbury. He and Poe were my first introduction to the macabre and short stories.

    Fahrenheit 451 always seems over-rated to me, a nice little idea, might make a good short story where holes like where is this wilderness they escape to so easily, but it can be overlooked and it doesn't matter that none of the characters really get developed, but it is not a very good book in my eyes. Still plenty of other people rate it so maybe it is just me.

    Yes! Me too fair fellow!

    I read, a little while ago, his collected stories (100 of them in there.) He was truly amazing. I think one of his quotes was, "I didn't go to university, I went to libraries."

    Just finished The Mad Scientists Daughter by Cassandra Rose Clarke. It's a book set in a semi-dystopian future where a lot of the population has died and robots are normality. A little girl falls in love with a human-like android and the story details the ups-and-downs of her life with him. It's well written, and I loved it.

    That was the first one, but it seems like the only one that focuses on AI romance. I believe her other works are fantasy. She also penned the 2017 Halo novel. It's a shame. I'd love to find some more grounded human/AI romance books.
