Reading Update

Here’s just a little update about how I’m doing with reading.

I’ve finished Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens comic. This was actually a lot of fun I thought. I’m just a proper sucker for anything Judge Dredd and am looking forward to exploring the comics a little more.

I’ve now moved onto the Deadpool and Cable Vol. 1.

I’m still about halfway through The Man In The High Castle, and it seems like we’re getting to the plot of the story. So far it feels like we’ve just been teased by a plot line in amongst the smaller storylines of the characters we’ve been following. Now it looks like we’re getting into the guts of the story. I really like how Phillip K. Dick has built up this story so far. I’m looking forward to seeing how it plays out.

Audiobook wise, I’m over halfway through The End Is Nigh, and I’m really enjoying it. Each story is just getting better and better and I really hope the next two collections are as strong.

The End Is Nigh

I’m about halfway the audiobook of The End Is Nigh. This is an anthology edited by John Josepth Adams and Hugh Howey about the events immediately before an apocalypse. 

So far I’m really impressed with the collection. There’s been one or two stories that I thought I wasn’t going to enjoy in the early stages of listening to them but as these ones have come to a close I’ve found I’ve liked them as much, maybe more in one case, than the stories I liked from the first few sentences. 

I’d love to say I’ll get this wrapped up by the time I leave work tomorrow, but I doubt I will. Regardless of whether I do or not I’m enjoying this collection, a lot. It’s reminded me that I need to think a little more about what I’m reading and what I want to be reading. So far each one of these stories has told me I need to be reading more in this genre. I’ve got a few books which I brought at DemonCon that I’ve got lined up but after I’ve gotten through them I think I’ll be getting into Wool By Hugh Howey.

The End Is Nigh is the first book of The Apocalypse Triptych, and focuses on stories before the apocalypse. The End Is Now obviously looks at life as an apocalypse is ongoing, and finally The End Has Come is all about after the apocalypse.
