Fleishman Is in Trouble is a really incredible novel about marriage, divorce, and getting older these days. Top 10 out of the last 100 books I've read.

I'm fascinated when the movie is better than the book. Because it's incredibly rare and also because, typically, the movies are much worse than the books.

This example is a little different because the movie is a loose adaptation, but Apocalypse Now is pretty rough ridin' incredible and Heart of Darkness is pretty rough ridin' shitty.

I miss mr bread   :Crybaby:

I just finished another fantastic fantasy.  Joe Abercrombie's new book, "A Little Hatred."  It picks up where his original series left off.  If you liked The Blade Itself and that series, then you'll love this book.  I loved it.

First fiction I’ve read in ages

Fast read wish it got more into the nuts and bolts of the theories on alternate realities etc.

Not bad

I just finished Ed Snowden's book. Quick, troubling non-fiction and I learned a lot about what he did, how he did it, and what he discovered.

Also read the last of the Neapolitan Novels. Lila Cerullo is one of the best literary characters of all time.

I know this is the wrong thread but have you watched Citizenfour? It's a very good documentary.

I should watch it. He mentioned it in the book. Also I'm glad his girlfriend moved to Moscow
