Found an article that lists the 10 science fiction books people pretend they read, but really need to read. Decided to check it out, ’cause, hey, sci-fi, anyways..
Here’s how I rank up… and no, I’m not ashamed. haha.
1.) Cryptonomicon – Won’t say I’ve read it, won’t say I will read it. Its apparently the mother of all info-dumps, and that’s not exactly fun for me.
2.) Dune – Ehm. This is more fantasy than sci-fi in my head, which is precisely why I’ve never developed a strong interest in reading it. I’m picky about my fantasy, dangit.
3.) Gravity’s Rainbow – To be honest, I’ve never heard of it. But…but… look at this awesome cover!
4.) Foundation by Isaac Asimov – This is on my TBR list, and I will get to it at some point. There’s just always something new and shiny to read first!
5.) Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell – They describe this book as fantasy repeatedly, so why is it in a Sci-fi list? WHY? They are NOT THE SAME!
6.) 1984 – Read it, didn’t like it.
7.) Last and First Men and Star Maker – Now officially on my TBR list.
8.) The Long Tomorrow – Now officially on my TBR list.
9.) Dhalgren – Ehm….nope.
10.) Infinite Jest – On my TBR list, but way, way, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down at the bottom of it.
