Can you imagine crushing your leg then using an implant to turn the pain into pleasure while bleeding to death, lol. Just started reading the series again as last time i rushed it. Wink

How ironic, Morns grudge against her parents, who left Morn with grandparents for most of her youth should save Angus's bacon.

Don't feel too lonely, b'gate. Both you and Warmark are in the midst of reading Gap.

Just haven't had much to say in response to your posts, although I agree about the irony in Morn's character evolution.

So... am I the first to notice the parallels between the zone implant and the rukh? Or has this been mentioned a million times already?

I don't remember anyone mentioning that before. It's been so long since I read the Chronicles that I don't remember much about the rukh. What are the similarities?

I cannot understand why Morn would tell Mikka about her zone implant, very risky to say the least. Just landing on Enablement station, the plot thickens.

I think I need a re-read. I can't remember the details very well. Was Morn trying to develop trust with Mikka? It's all a bit hazy in my mind.

Finished FK and The real story. Very good read. I have bought both ADAHGA and Chaos and Order. Starting another read tonight. I was reading elsewhere in the forum a thread about these books being turned into screen plays or films. FK would make Alien look like Tom and Gerry. Anyone recommend any other science fiction works it would be nice to hear. Very Happy

Sheesh, tell me about it. The more time you want, the faster it goes. When you wished it would fly, it didn't. Time is therefore subjective. Very Happy

Good, innit? Personally I think it's his best writing. Better than the Chrons.

Seconded (or thirded)! Nothing has blown my mind like the Gap. Smile

Oddly enough, I've never reread it. Or maybe it's not that odd, since I read it during a certain time in my life and it has somehow merged with that period in my mind (nothing out of the ordinary, it was just that I'd moved quite far away from home, going to university.) And that's probably part of the reason why it moved me in the way it did.
