60. “World War Z,” Max Brooks

September 15, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

This audiobook had a full cast reading it, which was really awesome for an oral history. It also had some creepy atmospheric music (like “The Haunting of Hill House,” which expired before I could finish it, so this may be its only mention). My favorite of the histories was the pilot whose plane crashed in the bayou. I usually listen to the book while I’m waiting to fall asleep (an endevour that often takes an hour or more), and this one was so vivid. I don’t typically get pictures in my head while reading, but I could see that one.

Brooks did a good job capturing the voices of people in many different cultures (though the voice actresses and actors may have helped, too).

I’d really recommend both the book and audiobook.

    Bitcoin has shown amazing growth during the last year and there will be some that are claiming that the success is soon to end and the currency crumble. Some of us continue support the idea of a user owned system away from the reach of the banks. We will not believe that crypto currency is finished. We shall be sticking with Bitcoin and we are quite certain that it will continue to rise more steeply than in the past. High street banks are getting concerned about the expansion of Bitcoin. Their worry is driven by the fact that bitcoin does not incur a fraction of the charges that conventional banking requires. Using a surfing platform similar to Bitcoin Surfing will offer you the opportunity to see any new deals are available related to crypto currency. Bitcoin Mining can be a good way to start building up your Bitcoin investment. Start a free Bitcoin account at Coinbase and you will be given $10 deposit of Bitcoin for nothing to get you started. There are a lot of offers to get you involved in crypto currency and Bitcoin Surfing is the perfect way to start. The best thing is it is free.
