ReadFrac Frac: The Great Riviera Bank Robberyby Albert Spaggiari. It's about a Frenchman, former OAS, who stole ~40 million Francs, mostly because he was bored.
You've probably heard a lot of this idea, but I'd really like to see Starship Troopers go down in the list of book club books. I'm always amazed to run into self-professed science-fiction fans who don't even know that the Paul Verhoeven movie is based (at least in name) on a book. In my opinion it makes a fascinating essay, even if doesn't hold up very well as a story. It's also pretty short, maybe a few days for the casual reader. What do people think of this?
Idoru- William Gibson.
He died with a Falafel in his hand
1) This sounds awesome.2) There's a graphic novel of it!!
Can we get some non-fiction up ins?
Yahtzee Croshaw wrote a novel where the main character is a resurrected corpse in an MMORPG. I have no idea if it's any good or not, but Yahtzee is a pretty funny man, and his geek cred might get non-reading listeners into it.

Then you're reading shitty non-fiction.
He died with a Falafel in his hand By John Birmingham is a pretty good book, and amusing. Also, not the usual fare for the book club, so it should be interesting.
I am looking forward to hearing you guys talk about Hunger Games in your next book club episode.
I can agree with The Left Hand of Darkness.
Has anyone here read "The Quantum Thief"?
Maybe Ready Player One? It's the author's first published novel and reads like Young Adult fiction, but it hits geek tropes and 80's references hard.
