Two Graves by Douglas J Preston
Two Graves

HasnulKarami, December 21, 2012

As soon As Preston & Child's new book, Two Graves, hit the stands, my sister got it for me and here I sit now wondering in what direction the next one will go. I could put the book down omly when duty called but I just wanted to lose myself in it.
Pendergast is back and Helen is for a few pages. But this book takes turns...we go back into the undergrand and we see things we never have before. We meet people we never have before and we see Pendergast facing emotional pain, fearing he won't be able to overcome. I recommend this book to anyone who loves a well written mystery but especially to all the other Pendergast lovers out there.

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
Ready Player One

HasnulKarami, December 21, 2012

By the halfway point I was giddy with all of the gamer fan trivia. How flipping crazy is this that ONE scene had references to D&D, MMO's, and the 80's game Joust? It's as if the heavens opened and decided to rain awesomeness.

We won't even go into all of the classic t.v. sitcoms, cartoons, movies, and technology which have been mentioned. Star Wars, Thundercats, War Games, and Atari, indeed. NERDGASM!

This book is a must read for fans of the 70's and 80's, as well as anyone who has ever played a console game, RPG, MUD, MMO, etc. How could anyone not love being immersed in the subculture of today's technology buffs?

ExTension: The 20-Minute-A-Day Yoga-Based Program to Relax, Release, and Rejuvenate the Average Stressed-Out Over-35-Year-Old Bod by Sam Dworkis
ExTension: The 20-Minute-A-Day Yoga-Based Program to Relax, Release, and Rejuvenate the Average Stressed-Out Over-35-Year-Old Bod

I read this book after delving into "home yoga" for about 3 months. As is probably common, I was doing many of the poses only semi-correctly. There is a lot of reading to be done here, but there is incredible detail to help anyone elicit the poses correctly. Dworkis also divides each pose for beginner, moderate, and advanced. After a particularly tough day of running and 5 sets of tennis, I followed the poses and felt refreshed, relaxed, and loose afterwards. The workout is also really only 20 minutes (after learning the poses) and fun to complete as well as challenging when striving for a more advanced level.

Blast: Spaceship Sketches and Renderings by Scott Robertson
Blast: Spaceship Sketches and Renderings

HasnulKarami, December 18, 2012

he 128-page book is filled with concept sketches and paintings. There are lots of aircrafts coming in all sorts of interesting shapes and designs. There are bulky ones, those that look like they have sails, vertically skewed ones, others, and one that I found the front to look like Iron Man. However, there are no gigantic deep space exploration crafts like those from Star Trek.
There is also an invited guest artist section featuring work from Harald Belker, Ian McQue, Thom Tenery, David Hobbins, Darren Bacon and Joon Ahn.It's a great book recommend to those who like sci-fi flying ships and art. It's an inspiring collection if you're looking for ideas.

The Imperial Infantryman's Handbook
The Imperial Infantryman's Handbook

HasnulKarami, December 18, 2012

For those of you who have the previous books in this serious, most famously the Imperial Infantryman's Uplifting Primer, you'll know that this isn't just a reference book, it's practically a prop! Indeed, our copies of Damocles Gulf editions are constantly being used when we play Dark Heresy. Not only are these books dripping with pure Imperial propaganda, they are also impressively mired in military style verbiage and bureaucracy. Indeed, the Primer was a literal extension of military red-tape that the guardsman is forced to carry with him at all times (or get a bullet in the head!). Did I mention that these books are also kinda of funny? Particularly the propaganda regarding how awesome the standard issue Lasgun is at killing everything!
