man i've have 2666 on my shelf for like 5 years and i just can't begin. it's a mastodont piece. had a period of reading thicker books, with the first part of the man without qualities being the culmination. after that it's most often been 3-400 pages maximum with a couple of exceptions
regarding deus ex, it's MD. never played any of the other ones so i can't really compare. but am having fun nonetheless :)
how's the southern reach trilogy? wanted to read annihilation after having seen the movie, but decided not to. can't remember why though.
2666 is worth the time imo. pretty harrowing to get through around the middle but it's a fkn beautiful novel in the end.
ah wicked, I thought the art in MD was pretty amazing at times and Ed Harrison's work on the soundtrack is absolutely stunning. felt like the story was pretty weak in the end but i did still have fun. HR was pretty fantastic so def recommend it if you enjoy MD.
really loved the annihilation book! I was also a bit sceptical going into it for some reason, but it was a really rewarding read after watching the film.
I honestly had never read anything like it before, even just the descriptions of the world around the character's was really interesting haha. The second book is meant to be a bit of a drag to get through, but I'm enjoying it so far.
