    James Joyce: Ulysses

    Finished Ulysses, it took some time... 732 pages while long isn't exceptional, I've read longer novels not one like this though, this is a marathon it's just so dense. It's also deliberately confusing. For me it started off as a regular story then slowly it changed into something in between...

    William Golding: Lord Of The Flies

    That's how it starts man, you read a book because you want to instead of have to then before you know it you're in the woods hunting pig.

    A Man Without a Country - Kurt Vonnegut

    I read it in a couple of hours (I'm very slow) and it was a very good couple of hours in the company of this cheerful pessimist. He doesn't hold back, essentially we're all going down the toilet very fast and if you don't agree this book still has some hard truths for you.

    William Golding: Lord Of The Flies

    Golding I think was stripping away society from the boys to let us see what they/we actually are. It's also a comment on our civilisation as society is all about survival and power.

    The Master Algorithm by Pedro Domingos (Review)

    It is kind of weird we see ourselves as progenitors of AI, actively working to replace ourselves with machines as if we have some sort of role in the first place.

    Her, a love story between a man and his computer OS. Quite a thought provoking movie especially as AI is the current hot topic in science at the moment. If a genuinely sentient artificial intelligence is created will it wish to hang around its progenitors or will it be desperate to get out of...

    Looking for interesting book where the main character has a cool power/high Intelligence.
