>I’ve also grown weary of reading about clouds in a book. Doesn’t this piss you off? You’re reading a nice story, and suddenly the writer has to stop and describe the clouds. Who cares?.......I’m not interested. Skip the clouds and get to the fucking. The only story I know of where clouds are important was Noah’s Ark!
I found the whole writing style very fast-paced. You just get a snapshot of what the character is going through as he finds himself whisked into... Fame? Fortune?
I for one was entertained.
Read through the thread. Nobody.
Obviously nobody who posted after me is going to assume it's real...
Still, entertaining read, thought it was clever the way email and tweet graphics were used throughout.
Too often Sci-Fi books go down this path as well, taking what could be an otherwise compelling story and turning it into ... this. (Daemon by Daniel Suarez is the first thing that comes to mind)
I should make it a point that frank discussions of sex and human sexuality don't bother me in the least, but drugged-up-sex-power-struggle-bullshit? Mer.
To some degree, yeah, but I think your self-loathing is showing.
...but not on the Kindle due to some creative typography.
Two of my favorites:
Starving to death on 200 Million (The Industry Standard)
August (A film based on Globe.com)
Also, SoreGoggles actually sounds like a fun idea for an app.
The fake tweets about vomiting all over the stage were definitely entertaining.
It didn't seem to be the money nor the vision, ¿what do you think?
It is really annoying and frustrating.
What decade was this fictional start-up created in? 1870?
Because you can use it on your desktop/laptop/tablet AND phone (even on your Kindle I hear).
Because it's also an open standard.
