    Finished:

    I Am Legend by Richard Matheson

    Robert Neville was not black, a scientist, or in care of a dog. In fact, the creatures he faces are so far off from those on the big screen that it seems the one thing the book and the film shared in common was the name of the main character.

    This book stood on it's own two legs and does not need the film to merit a read-through. I thoroughly enjoyed the devolution of the main character. He struggles to stop the new world he lives in from swallowing him whole.

    I enjoyed this book very much and I found the narration to be dark and with the right tone for this story.

    The Godfather

    The novel is great (read it previously), the narration is aweful. Returned the book after one chapter and will select another.

    About 8 hours into Game of Thrones book 1. It's 30 hours long!

    I like it.

    I did all the game of Thrones books last year. Great listen.

    Just finished Into Thin Air, which is the source material for the new Everest movie. (I love any movie that's got Jake Gyllenhaal on a mountain.)

    Finishing up Heart of Darkness right now, which is the source material for Apocalypse Now.

    The Martian is next, which of course is the source material for the new Matt Damon movie. I wonder why anyone would even try to rescue Matt Damon off an alien planet. didn't those fuckers see Interstellar??

    Also listened to and would recommend The Long Walk, Cujo, Animal Farm, 1984, Watership Down, Ender's Game, The Stand, The Running Man, Fahrenheit 451, Needful Things, Cell and 11/22/63. (yeah, I like Stephen King.)

    I would HIGHLY recommend World War Z which has NOTHING to do with the movie. The voice actors include Simon Pegg, Mark Hammill
    Rob Reiner, Alan Alda and Henry Rollins. Motherfuckin' Battle of Yonkers was the shit!!!
