What I’m reading

What is so interesting that I can’t seem to be bothered to make new painting/modelling posts every single day? I’ll tell you. 

 

Some of the litterature I have to keep up with

That’s right, it is exam time, which means I’m doing a lot of reading. And, as you can tell from the picture, it’s MOSTLY curriculum litterature. But I also spend some time on the dayly paper, the monthly car magazine and, more relevant to this blog, Warhammer 40K-litterature. Currently Dan Abnett’s The Lost omnibus. Those novels are simply addictive to me; some time ago I decided to take a break from 40k-reading, and started to read this other series. I made it through three books before I had to jump back, and now I’m busy re-learning all the names of those under Colonel-Commissar Gaunt’s command. If you have ANY interest at all in the Warhammer 40, 000-universe, I’m just telling you: The Gaunt’s Ghosts-series. Seriously.

This other Warhammer 40K-series I’m reading is The Horus Heresy. The “40K-break” I had has made me unable to keep up the pace, and so I haven’t read the two latest additions; Nemesis and The First Heretic.  When I’m done with the first of four novels in The Lost, I will most certainly switch over, that I might get back on track in the 31st milennium. For those of you that don’t know: The Horus Heresy-series is about the catastrofic events that broke The Emperor’s great crusade, and plunged the galaxy into a 10, 000 years long war that rages more fiercely than ever in the 41st milennium (the present date of Warhammer 40, 000, hence the name). Epic reading, I can assure you; both dark tragedy and magnificent triumph awaits the reader of this fantastic collaborative series.

Don’t worry though, I’m in the process of assembling a Land Raider Crusader, details will be coming soon.

Comments in both English and Norwegian are appreciated!

    Great picture, and thanks for the Horus Heresy recomendation, I’m going to read it next, I’m currently reading the Ciaphas Cain series, and I find it OK, but not great.

      I’m glad you found it useful! I’ve been wondering about what series to turn to when I’m finished with Gaunt’s Ghosts, and Ciaphas Cain is one of my alternatives. All I know is that it’s supposed to have a stronger element of comedy than most 40K-litterature.

      Maybe you can eventually compare it to the Horus Heresy and tell me what you think, or write a post about it on your blog? Anyway, thanks for the comment!
