I'm one of the only people I know who enjoys Hemingway.  Yes, you have to almost literally chew through it, but I do enjoy his stories.  The Old Man and the Sea was a great read.

I didn't care for the Sword of Truth series.  I got really bored reading it, and it seemed like a rip-off of a lot of Jordan's concepts and ideas.

Finally read "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?"
It was very different from the Blade Runner movie, which I now must re-watch because I haven't seen it in ages!

The truth is much more awesome than that. You can almost never see the real Moon, and its appearance is death to humans. You can only see the Moon when it's reflected in things. And the things it reflects in, like water or glass, can all be broken, right? Since the moon you see in the sky is just being reflected in the heavens, if you tear open the heavens it's easy to break it~"
