    The Witcher on Netflix.

    At first I was sceptical, he doesn't look like Geralt at all, but with today's characterisation, who knows. He sounds like he really read and enjoyed the books.

    Luke Cage II - No Spoilers

    Actually mormont a month ago said it should be ok to use spoilers.

    Luke Cage II - No Spoilers

    I enjoyed it much more than the first season. And even Danny appearing out of nowhere and then disappearing was much less annoying than in his own show. I really liked Hernan arc.

    Congrats!!! I can't believe it, but they cancelled my tonight's Berlin City Night race, just before the start, due to... rain! Fuckin rain!!! Ok, it was quite a rain at first, and we've even seen some lightnings, but after half an hour it was all over. And they simply cancelled a race for more than 10 thousand participants from all over Europe. Of course, like hundreds of other disappointed runners, I did run these 10 k anyway, and even mostly along the planned route, but pushing through the crowds on Saturday evening Berlin pavements was definitely not the same as running a race. Oh well. What can I say.

    @Myrddin Please come back here and share your thoughts after you read SoD, and the whole series too, for that matter. I wonder if what I remember is still true.

    Respect lmpmk2, I can't even reach such a pace in a 10k race. And congratulations Ace and Baxus.

    Yes, but you have read books #1 and #3. And final stories of book #2 have some strongest and most emotional moments in all The Witcher saga. If you don't like it, then you definitely won't love the rest, if I'm any judge. I have never read it in English, so I don't know if the translation of the first few volumes is so bad it could discourage to continue reading, but I remember having to wait for the next installments of the series and it was a desperate one, I don't remember any issues with pacing or style of writing whatsoever. But there you go again, it's always individual, isn't it?

    I'd say Time of Contempt and Baptism of Fire are slightly better paced than Blood of Elves, but you really, REALLY need to do yourself a favour and read a slim, 200 pages long short stories collection first. Why are you so reluctant to do it anyway?

    Adidas Runners Berlin City Night route has a loop along Ku-damm, mostly. It is supposed to be flat, full of cheering crowds and bands playing live gigs (it's kinda standard now though, isn't it?). I will be aiming at 4:45 average pace and see how it goes. Hope the damn knee will give it a rest.

    I second these. Know quite a few people who started like you @Myrddin, felt odd, and then, after reading Sword of Destiny, they said "now it all make sense at last". I'd really give it a go.

    @MyrddinWhat C.T.Phipps said. You should have read The Sword of Destiny before Blood of Elves and if you still felt disappointed then it's definitely not for you. Another matter, that from what I heard, the quality of translation definitely improved in later books.

    I've signed up for a City Night 2018 10k race in Berlin on July 28th. My first foreign race. The say it's a good race to beat a PB. Shame I have a knee problems of late and won't be fully fit. I'll try nevertheless.

    What are your favourite Philip K Dick books?

    I'm on the same wagon with those who liked pretty every Dick book they read. My most favourite are The Divine Invasion, Ubik, The Man in the High Castle, Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch, Valis and Scanner Darkly, more or less in that order. And the collections of short stories of course, these are a real mine of brilliant ideas, that could't be ruined by a bigger forms thankfully.

    WC2018 - Match Day 1: In Putin Russia, World Cup Watch You!

    Actually the last three world cups, since when the host plays the opening match, there were two wins (Germany on 2006 and Brasil in 2014) and one draw (South Africa in 2010). And the teams that won were also massive favourites of the whole tournament. So I wouldn't be so sure about today's result.
