Both the old (with Schwarzennegger) and new Total Recalls are only remotely based on "We Can Remember...". The short story is very amusing and the ending is fantastic, while the movies only borrow the "forgotten memories" dimension and add a typical Hollywood chase.
You'd be surprised at how many movies are based on PKD's work. Sadly, most of them are pure garbage. Blade Runner is probably the ONE good movie based on PKD's work, and believe it or not it only borrows certain aspects of the novel (Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?).
I have that book and haven't read it yet. What are your thoughts on it? Good to see Dona also seemed to enjoy it
For those who posted covers of Warhammer and Warhammer 40K novels, are they any good? i.e. at least a few thousand miles above R.A. Salvatore?
I recently read Fahrenheit 451 and The Martian Chronicles, both very fast and entertaining to read. Now I managed to get my hands on the Spanish edition of some of the Witcher books, which I previously read in English, and HOLY CRAP!
The English edition of "The Last Wish" was decent, but "The Blood of Elves" was an uncomfortable read. The Spanish translation is SO MUCH BETTER! You can actually tell you're reading a talented writer, not a clumsy translation. In retrospective, this makes Danusia Stok's work almost unbearable. I was seriously missing out.
