    Of course it isnt, it isnt meant to be a comedy.

    I did enjoy WWZ because:
    it was an easy read, none of the chapters were very long
    and it was interesting to see so many different approaches, not just following one person/group


    As for the movie, we'll see. They've been talking about it for years, im not going to get my hopes up until I see a trailer and release date

    Just finished the Heroin Diaries by Nikki Sixx. That dude was really effed up! Now I'm reading the Dirt by Motley Crue, one totally out of control band. Not really a big Crue fan but some of their stuff I dig, but they are interesting reads. I'm a child of the 80's so what can I say?

    The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes — and Why by Amanda Ripley

    Before current book, was reading Everyday Survival: Why Smart People Do Stupid Things by Laurence Gonzales (liked his first book Deep Survival). First half was good; last half not so good, to the point didn't finish reading. Disappointing.

    Marriage and the Sequela Christi by David Crawford. It's never good when you can't pronounce the name of your textbook.

    After a couple months of on-and-off reading, I finished The Stand a while back; recently picked up 98.6 Degrees: The Art of Keeping Your *** Alive by Cody Lundin of Dual Survivor fame.

    I just finished American Gods by Neil Gaiman, which I very much enjoyed. (Thank you Jinglish and KeyeEl.) I am about to start his spinoff Anansi Boys.

    I've just finished this.....over the course of two night shifts at work.....I loved it.

    I've started on William Gibson's 'Neuromancer'. I don't know how I never got round to reading this!!!

    Neuromancer is one of my favorites. After you finish Count Zero and Mona Lisa Overdrive, (The next two books in Gibson's Sprawl Trilogy), I would recommend Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson.

    excellent choices read and have them all
    a good new element in post cyberpunk is Simon Morden's "equations of life"

    I got bored of Neuromancer. I've got George Carlin on my iPod and reading 'God is Not Great' by Christopher Hitchens in iBooks. Just taking a break.

    I just started and am half way through Whitley Strieber The Key. First book I've read in a long time.
