Last week I recommended Amazon’s Pilot Episode for The Man In The High Castle. I stand by that. It was awesome. I hope everyone watches it and the show garners a zillion positive reviews. I’d like to crowbar Amazon’s ass off the couch and make those bastards film the rest of the series. (It’s possible you didn’t like it. If so may I recommend Ow My Balls for a more appropriate choice of entertainment?)
As for myself, I couldn’t wait. I bought The Man in the High Castle in book form. (Actually I bought it in Kindle form. For better or worse I’ve ditched paper so thoroughly I’m as likely to buy a paperback as an illuminated manuscript.)
I’m glad I picked it up. I’m halfway through and it’s been excellent. (I just wish I had more time to read. You know how it gets when you’ve got a killer book at hand but are continually distracted by… life.)
I’m thinking the folks at Amazon have their antennae tuned to the wind because they just dropped the price of the book. That’s right. While yours truly paid a reasonable (but not cheap) $7.69 everyone else can go get it for $2.99. Life; it ‘aint fair.
You heard it here first. Apparently it’s possible to buy a book from 1962 and and still make the purchase a week before the price drops. Is there a word for “53 years late to the party and still an early adopter”?
P.S. Same warning as before, plot spoilers in the comments will result in execution.
