I've got to stop reading these war novels. I feel like I want to scream and cry after reading them.

I would just like to say, for those who said they were adding 'Matterhorn' to their list, that I feel that this was even more powerful. 'Matterhorn', for all of its qualities, does not possess the character development that 'Fields of Fire' does; in short, I didn't feel attachments to more than a few characters in 'Matterhorn', whereas in Webb's novel every character has a nickname, a story. Time is spent on who these guys are and why they do what they do. Their backgrounds. The supporting characters (Phony, Bagger, Cat Man, Baby Cakes, Cannonball), they all have their stories, and when shit hits the fan, it cuts you to the core to see what happens to these guys.

I'm 200 pages into Matterhorn right now and I really like it so far. I just ordered Fields of Fire and will read it next.

Blood Meridian is what I'm currently reading and its a masterpiece. I'm also in the middle of Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson and its nothing special.

Get on it, ZeN. I won't tell you what happens in it, but pretty much every chapter will make you almost unable to put the book down just so you can find out what's going to happen next.

The book has so much detail that I'm thinking whenever the next movie is released based off of Catching Fire, it'll be tame because they'll have to make the movie 3+ hours long just to capture every detail.

Nothing, i consider reading the biggest waste of time (its not as good of an experience as you would watch a good movie of that plot instead, in 1-2 hours accompanied with people/friends/GF instead of days with letters.. alone), unless its educational or something really interesting of a figure/thing you like (basketball, martial arts, gandhi, bruce lee, magic & bird, jordan, whatever)... but even then i would prefer image/sound

You'd rather slurp on LeBron's balls anyway, so it's no surprise.


Reading is a waste of time, yet trolling the NBA forum isn't? I see you're doing something productive with your life.
