There were also parts that even in the highly fictionalized world did not make..."

I forgot about the scene when Zach destroys all the equipment. It's like no one cared because he was the son of some famous military guy. I never really became attached to any of the characters. I thought his friends from earth were going to join him in space, but they didn't play a big role. Then the ones we do meet in space die. Then everyone goes off to have sex when they find out the world is going to end. All three couples. I thought that was odd.

After it was announced to the world that the aliens were coming everyone runs to local internet cafes and and gets on their iPads and all help out. I have issues with this. My parents are what I would consider non-gamers and there is no way they would do this. In fact... I really don't see people doing this unless they are gamers. Plus I was thinking about the fact that people were only told one hour in advance. Sometimes I am mowing my lawn, washing my car, blah blah and it takes a whole hour. I might not even turn on the news or check the internet that hour. So it's like how many people were busy that hour and didn't even have a chance to get the message the aliens were coming!

1865 Honestly, I too was really disappointed in this book. UGHHH. I just think this was trying too hard to add in pop culture references. The story went on and on about this upcoming battle... and then honestly the way it ended had me scratching my head. The fact that this came from the same author as Ready Player One really surprises me.

1865 I loved Ready Player One so much! So I was really looking forward to this book. So far it's good .. seems a little too detailed. But I'm just rolling with it right now.

1865 I felt like the season finale was more like a series finale. Did it seem like that to anyone else?

1865 I had no idea this was going to be a movie! This is great!

1865 I am so glad this show is back... even though there are hardly any shows this season. I did think it was kinda crazy that girl didn't have to go to jail or anything after swapping DNA!

1865 Thank you for the news on Eureka's return! I am also sick of these split seasons. So really to me it is two different seasons with 10 episodes each instead of the 20 episodes on one season that we are used to. Let's just call it what it is.

1865 I have a Mac-and no software glitches here! Love Mac! ; )
1865 Chris I had never heard of Legends... so this story isn't in any other King books?

1865 I recommend this book to everyone!

1865 Humm... I actually don't know about that. I would see if you can pre-order the Stand's hardcover and then you will know?
1865 I have all the graphic novels, Dark Tower and the Stand. The new stuff that is added to the stories are in the appendixes which are only in the comic book versions and not in the hard back collections.

1865 Anyone download the Halo Wars demo?
1865 What I found interesting was that none of the characters had super human powers except Dr. Manhattan. And to be honest I hadn't know that DC characters were the original characters for the book. So when I read it I wasn't really thinking about who that is supposed to be or who that it. It will be interesting to re-read it and think of that characters that way this time.

1865 I love reading it in one installment. I agree with Donna, I hate having to have to go to the comic book store constantly. So I like that some graphic novels compile several of the comics into one book so that I can read them all at once. Now some people might think this would take away profits from a comic book store, but recently Marvel is trying to kinda fix this by making the graphic novels available exclusively at the comic book stores. For example I am looking forward to the Stand Comics all in one book, but Marvel is not letting places like Barnes and Noble sell it you have to go to the comic book stores to get it. Which is fine with me either way.

1865 I agree with Beth... if people actually left the group over the emails that is pretty sad. As soon as I saw it in my inbox I knew it was a mistake. I simply read the first one and delete the rest as easy as that. Nick you are a great Mod for this group... Thanks for all the work you do!
