What book, or books, are you reading right now? What do you think about it? Would you recommend it to anyone else?

Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth


If you're a fan of the Uncharted series then you should enjoy it for the most part. It's a decent read, if not fairly slow, and it gives a much deeper look into Drake's mind set. You do get a good sense of what might be going through his mind in the games and that he really isn't as nice as you, and I, might have taken him for. If you play the games then I recommend it but if you don't then you probably shouldn't.

This series is all quick, fun, pulp.

Worth checking out if you're taking a plane or like to have something to read on the bus.

Great book series, I recommend it to anyone that likes fantasy, magic, or smartass heroes. The books can be quite lengthy, but they keep me reading through the entire book really getting too bored. Full of fantasy, humor and suspense, with a long plot that thickens with each book.

A collection of columns written about English TV in the early 2000s. The book is very sarcastic about EVERYTHING there is to be sarcastic about in television and often has really hilarious metaphors and roll on jokes. Charlie Brooker's anger at human beings as a whole has made me laugh out loud more then anything else I've ever seen, I suppose.

A short excerpt;

Spoiler:
“Whenever I tell people I'm a misanthrope they react as though that's a bad thing, the idiots. I live in London, for God's sake. Have you walked down Oxford Street recently? Misanthropy's the only thing that gets you through it. It's not a personality flaw, it's a skill.

It's nothing to do with sheer numbers. Move me to a remote cottage in the Hebrides and I'd learn to despise the postman, even if he only visited once a year. I can't abide other people, with their stink and their noise and their irritating ringtones. Bill Hicks called the human race 'a virus with shoes', and if you ask me he was being unduly hard on viruses; I'd consider a career in serial killing if the pay wasn't so bad.”

I haven't gotten very far into the book myself but so far it's been a pretty good book. It's by Chris Hardwick, a regular on Attack of the Show and a decent comedian. He makes a point to say that he is not a life coach early on and that he's just a guy that did some stuff that just happened to help him turn his life around. He relies on humor quite often and that can be a good and bad thing but overall it does give me the feeling that I can do something more then my current situation, which has to be a good sign.

As of right now, I'd recommend it to anyone that might be going through a rut or two in their life, such as yours truly, and is ready to do something about it. I honestly don't know if Hardwick actually wrote this himself or had someone write it and put his name on it, if the latter is the case then he got someone pretty good to write for him. I like it so far and you might as well.
