    Dune was excellent. I would highly recommend it. I read the second one and it was crap, which was disappointing because the first one was so, so good.

    Neuromancer was also quite good.

    I’ve been thinking about starting the Dark Tower series for a while now. Sounds like it’s worth the read?
