What are you currently reading?

Post  7N6Wolf on Sun Aug 19, 2012 10:07 pm

What is everyone around here reading at the moment (besides this thread Razz )?

I am currently reading The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany by William L. Shirer.

someone suggested I read my little dashie, but given the nature of fan fiction, i'm a bit scared to start.

A Canticle for Leibowizt? It is good. It is a post-apocalyptic story. It focuses on an order of monks dedicating themselves to preserving documents that detail the technology which existed before a nuclear war caused a global collapse of civilization. Whereas Fallout's Brotherhood of Steel is a romantic (one might even say juvenile) take on this kind of idea, what you have in this book is a fairly realistic treatment. For instance, the monks cannot do anything with the documents they copy because they don't even understand them. Who would undertake a task which will likely not bear any fruits within a lifetime or even a hundred, if not someone motivated by religious fervor?
