This was a neat little book! I enjoyed following along with Martin Harris as he pieces his life back together after his accident and the chicanery as the story progresses makes for an interesting ride. My only complaint is that the book is quite shor ...more

I recently rediscovered the Star Wars universe, courtesy of my son, and decided I wanted to know more about the story that came before A New Hope (not the new prequels).

Oscar Wilde
“There was something terribly enthralling in the exercise of influence. No other activity was like it. To project one's soul into some gracious form, and let it tarry there for a moment; to hear one's own intellectual views echoed back to one with all the added music of passion and youth; to convey one's temperament into another as though it were a subtle fluid or a strange perfume: there was a real joy in that--perhaps the most satisfying joy left to us in an age so limited and vulgar as our own, an age grossly carnal in its pleasures, and grossly common in its aims....”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture Of Dorian Gray; A Moral Entertainment

Neal Stephenson
“Not that any of the sysadmin’s knowledge and skills were applicable here.

Neal Stephenson, Reamde
