it is a very good read. Just need a foundation to work off of is all, and yes that would require but not be limited to knowing some Freud.

Currently reading Against Authority by John Twelve Hawks.
it's not a revelation, so far, but good to know others are thinking logically.
It is a free download, also.

Recently I discovered two old tomes online. One, Principles of Quantum Mechanics by Paul Dirac will keep me busy a very long time and the other by comparison a cool breeze is Piaget's -- A Child's Conception of the World -- . I'm finding both heady and beautiful.

Well, I enjoyed Against Authority and it was heartening to read at least one oher person concerned about freedom in the digital panopticon.
Moved on to the latest Harry Hole (Norwegian detective fiction) and Ghost In The Wires about Kevin Mitnik.

remeber iain m. banks?
of course you do.
it was the first time i was reading a certain new type of science fiction, and i was amazed, eyes and mouth agape.
not only the technical, but also the social, biological etc. largeness of vision.
then i realised there won't be any more iain m. banks books ... :-(

anyhow, Alastair Reynolds has filled that absence, literally.
currently reading: House of Suns.
Previously:
On the Steel Breeze
Revelation space
Blue remembered Earth
Terminal world

- and i can recommend all of them. Though you should start with revelation space, if you can.

While I do find it sad there won't be any more Iain M Banks I have to admit I never really "clickeda" with his Culture novels.
I think I'll my favourite of his is Transition -- which sort-of bridged his two styles and included the most "badass" "superheroine"/ mutant I think I've ever come across in the shape of Bisquitine.

Oh, talking of strong females after this:

I think it popped up in my Netflix recommendations because I liked Long Way Round or Long Way Down and, while sailing's not something I'd usually think about, it definately has a sense of adventure.
I have now started on the book about the "Maidentrip" One Girl One Dream.

Yeah, we're bringing this back from the dead!

I'm trying to read Agatha Christie's A Caribbean Mystery. It's my introduction to the author and the Jane Marple character. Besides my book falling apart, I really like it; I can't wait to read more.

I haven't read as much as I should of her (thank you for the reminder) but I've read a fair bit and enjoyed the Poirot television series broadcast here in the UK (I was oddly proud to visit one of the filming locations). Her use of language is effortless and I love her characters.
