    Beer is definitely an acquired taste. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not. I haven't really found a way to predict when I'm going to enjoy a beer, which can get kinda strange.

    Oh man, speaking of Dresden.

    One time I was in a hotel room with VH and he was holding one of those novels and an unnamed [chat]ter said ARE YOU ACTUALLY READING THAT? THE LATER ONES ARE FUCKING AWFUL I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU'D READ SOMETHING THAT TERRIBLE.

    It was a Foundation novel.

    Oh like a literal submarine, okay.

    It sucks, because I really like a LOT of the concepts he introduces. I like the setting, I like the way magic works, I like the characters.

    But I think his novels (the few I've read, I guess) tend to drag in the middle, which is when I can easily get distracted by another book that has more "action".

    The same thing keeps happening to me with Neal Stephenson's "Quicksilver" trilogy.

    I am almost finished with book 1, and I have not a fucking clue what is going on.

    That's the hardest one. The author very slowly reveals the mechanics and history of the world so it's not til three or four that you have a solid grip on everything. But the second book is excellent on its own. The Chain of Dogs story in it is fucking masterful and heart breaking.

    And for what it's worth the world and how it works is awesome and I personally think it's worth the pay off.
