  • I recommend that you get (at least) one of each.
    Fiction: Rendezvous with Rama or anything by Arthur C. Clarke.
    Perl: Perl Cookbook is the only book left on your list that I have read. (I actually have most of those on my list as well.)

    • OK, I'm getting the point with "Perl Cookbook" :-)

      As for Arthur, I already have a couple of his books (2001, Expedition to Earth), but I have been hearing so many good thing on this one, and I can't find it in Portugal, so... I guess I'll have to send it in! :-)

      Tell me, is that book a complete story, or is it just part of a greater one? (I've seen quite a few books with the name "Rama" on them...)

      • It's definitely a complete story. The other books in the series are supposed to pick up where this one leaves off but I never made it past Rama II. (I didn't like the collabrative work.)
    • Rendezvous with Rama or anything by Arthur C. Clarke
      If I had to pick one Clarke book to recommend, it would have to be Childhood's End [isbn.nu]. The original "Rama" is indeed good, but it suffers from a very weak ending, IMHO. Of all his books, "Childhood's End" is my all-time favorite.
