    That's like 300 years old. Reminds me of Japamese cinema. Never a happy ending.

    Oh I absolutely plan to watch the show. I purposely avoided knowing anything about it while reading the book.

    Just watched the first episode. The actors are perfectly cast in their roles. Kovacs is just how I imagined him, and the whole feel of the environment is exactly how I expected. It captures the style of the book very well. Looking forward to watching more.

    @psionandy Is the book as strange as the movie? The movie reminded me of reading Kurt Vonnegut's stuff.

    Most of it is strange in a different way to the movie .. but if you take Vonnegut, throw in some kakfa and season with a sprinkling of M*A*S*H then your not far off....

    I often think books should have a rating, like movies. The one I'm reading currently is most certainly not for kids. But how would you know that it contained such graphic content before reading it?

    Finished The Sculpted Ship by K. M .O'Brien. Pretty good, will read the sequel. My biggest problem is that there seemed to be missing words throughout the digital edition. I don't know if the file was somehow corrupted, or it was badly scanned, but yeah, kind of annoying.

    Now reading Don't Tell My Parents I Have a Nemesis by Richard Roberts.

    Anna Karenina. Started it a while ago, but have mainly read it when travelling (reading other things inbetween), so have now made the decision to finish it rather than let spill over into 2019.
