    What books did you read in 2019?

    6. Everything Under by Daisy Johnson. I was really enthusiastic about this as it sounded right up my street. Sadly, despite many positive aspects - including being clearly brilliantly written - the story failed to move me, and I really struggled to bond with the first half especially. The opening third is also pretty confusing, though I think that's deliberate and serves the narrative on reflection. I certainly wouldn't want to dissuade others from reading it, but I personally ended up a little disappointed. Now on to Roadside Picnic as I haven't touched any sci-fi for a while. Still also working my way through The Stand on Audible - halfway through, and it remains excellent. Previously:
  2. Home Fire is today's deal of the day. I thought it was great (but read it; haven't listed to this version).

    OMG!!!!! Infinity Engine RPGs are coming to consoles..

    Very similar to the few criticisms I posted in the GOG thread back in 2011:

    I last played it in 2011 and was blown away all over again. It hadn't dated at all.

    Yeah, the splitting stacks issue sounds very familiar - but not a huge deal. Thanks; unless they announce a Switch date very soon then I'll probably crack on with the iPad.

    Yeah, me too - I played both BG games to completion on iPad, but it was ages back and I can't remember a thing now.

    Having finished Zelda I'm now itching for an RPG to fill the void. With no date on the Switch versions, I'm tempted to get Torment on the iPad instead. It's eight years since I last played it, and I've just about forgotten it all, so it's probably time to go again. Has anyone here played the iPad version?

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    Finished (for now).

    Yep, time to buy Planescape yet again. I bought the EE a while back but haven't started it yet - if the Switch version is good then that's preferable to me. It's still perhaps my favourite ever game - certainly top three.

    The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    The sensor helped me find a load of mushrooms and fish for armour upgrades - it's fiddly, but definitely saved me time with some rare items.

    Steady on there. It's good but it's no Rise of the Robots.

    5. - Little Fires Everywhere. Having not liked this much at first, I ended up really enjoying it. There were a couple of plot contrivances which stretched believability, but I was willing to forgive it that. Now on to Everything Under. Previously:

    Football Thread 2018/19

    In these worrying times of great national and indeed international disunity, it feels important that we can at least come together to share in Dinobot's sadness. Even the most ardent of Rllmuk's Liverpool fans can surely appreciate that a greater good has been served here this evening.
