I intend reading those but I'm not sure when...I have a good excuse as I'm getting married next week then going on honeymoon until mid August :)

Helle I read this for university a couple of years ago. I think it's much better than its more famous movie adaptation.

I can't wait to read it but unfortunately won't have time until later in the month.

Charlotte Jones (ramblingsofanelfpire) I've just started reading this and am only 28 pages in but I am enjoying it. It's a slower read than I expected but so far the tone is quite similar to Nineteen Eighty-Four to me, which I loved =)

Charlotte Jones (ramblingsofanelfpire) I just finished Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and I really enjoyed it! I gave it a 4 star rating because I couldn't rate it higher than 1984 which I also really enjoyed.
I think these two are definitely similar in some ways but the world that is created in this one is slightly more believable in a way, though the pacing is a little slower.
I think there are a lot of themes in this book that I would love to discuss with others once they have read this book because there are just some interesting ideas about nature brought up in this story.
