Ready Player One (again), in anticipation of the paperback of Ready Player Two.
I just finished Ready Player Two and I didn’t foresee Cline killing off all of the characters at the end. Kidding. I found it started off a bit slow, but was a real page turner once it got going. If you liked the first book, you will enjoy the sequel.Ready Player One (again), in anticipation of the paperback of Ready Player Two.
Great film. I saw it at the Kennedy Center.Re-reading Napoleon: Abel Gance's Classic Film by Kevin Brownlow. The book documents Brownlow's life-long quest to piece together this forgotten silent film after seeing portions as a teen in 1954. I picked up a 1983 1st American edition of the book from AbeBooks, years ago. The BFI/Brownlow definitive Napoleon blu-ray was finally released in 2016. The 5.5 hour film version is still not available in the USA, and may never be due to rights issues. One needs to order it from the UK and have an all-region blu-ray player to play it.
I liked Schoolboy better than Tinker. Fantastic combination of action in the field and behind the scenes within the Circus.I've been on a John LeCarre' kick since his passing late last year. 2 years ago, I read "The Night Manager". After his passing, I decided to read The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, and then started the George Smiley "Karla Trilogy" with Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (finished yesterday) and just now starting The Honourable Schoolboy. Fantastic writing and very cerebral in the spy craft without all the technology of today's game.
