I finished up Breakfast of Champions and moved on to Cat's Cradle last night. I haven't read this book since high school (almost 25 years ago). It's a good read and a good walk down memory lane for me.

Mona Lisa Overdrive by William Gibson. I've had it for a long time and now picked it up to read.

Gibson's Sprawl trilogy is very tough to get through.

I don't find that to be true at all. I breezed through them because they were so ridiculously awesome.

I miss awesome cyberpunk gibson.

Totally awesome yes, but still hard for me to get through b/c of all the technobabble. IIRC, Gibson would give long stupid corporate names to his little tech devices, but never ever gave descriptions of them.

"Molly pulled out her Hitachi Sony Kawasaki and ordered a pizza"

Still tho, much props to Gibson for predating The Matrix and Ghost in the Shell by a mile.

God, I have to re-read Tropic Of Cancer again. Read it several times but this reminds me what a good read it is.

Jules Vernes' 20,000 leagues under the sea. So incredibly and unintentionally homoerotic!
