I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison

Big Sam Was My Friend
Eyes of Dust
World of the Myth

Post Captain by Patrick O'Brian
Chapter 1
The 2003 film Master and Commander was based on the Aubrey–Maturin series by Patrick O'Brian, of which this is the second instalment. I greatly enjoyed the film when I finally saw it in 2012 (over 7 years ago! Jeez), so the idea of reading the novels has always been at the back of my mind. Normally I'd start with the first, but this one was available to me, so I thought I'd read a chapter or two and see how I got on. Well, they're quite long chapters (just 14 across this 470-something page book), and the first was enough to convince me that, actually, I don't really get on with it. Oh well.
