CY: definitely still here! Have had no time for novels... been wrapped up in work and reading research papers, non-fic, etc.

Been thinking I need to re-read Murakami's After Dark. Got a weird feeling the other night that made me think of it.. Will have to sit down one evening and hammer it out.

Sputnik Sweetheart and The Wind-Up Bird are my two favourite Murakami novels. Think TWUB is probably the better book, but I loved SS a little more.

Be interesting to know what you think. Apart from being visually stunning, I did not really care for it (and I loved HOL). Too abstruse, and I didn't find it "readable" at all from a story or enjoyment point of view...

I recently finished
THE MARTIAN by Andy Weir (which I highly, highly recommend)

Also finished
2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY by Arthur C Clarke (which I thoroughly enjoyed)

Now reading
2010: ODYSSEY TWO (because I'm into it)

Next looking into reading:
ANATHEM - Neal Stephenson
HOMINIDS - Robert J Sawyer
THE DISPOSSESSED - Ursula K Le Guin

Any other sci-fi books you guys can recommend? For some reason I'm on a huge sci-fi kick and I'm loving it.
This year alone have read Contact, Childhood's End, The Martian Chronicles and others

Some of the more recent sci fi novels I recommend (of course that includes The Martian):
Dark Eden by Chris Beckett
the Silo series (Wool, Shift & Dust) by Hugh Howey

Of course there is always The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy!

And almost anything by Philip K. Dick
