Did anyone here ever think of giving a character the voice of Arnold Schwarzenegger?

No, I didn't... until now! Very Happy

I usually don't base characters off of actors when I'm reading btw.

I can't remember if I've ever used Arnold, but I have used Sylvester Stallone.

And I despise Jason Momoa's voice. Worst Conan ever.

I've never seen Conan. I think of him fondly from Stargate: Atlantis. I was disappointed when he wasn't cast as Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy.

There was a minor misunderstanding. When I said read in the voice of Sean Connery - I mean read everything in his voice, not just one character. It makes the book at least 80% cooler.

But, yeah, I do have a habit of imagining actors in the roles of the character. Makes it easier to remember them. For some reason Nathan Fillion features prominently.

Nathan Fillion should figure prominently into most things.

I'm reading "Rot & Ruin" by Jonathan Maberry. It's a zombie book. It's pretty cool so far.

Though when I was reading it, the first few pages seemed really familiar, but I was positive I hadn't read the book before.

Turned out that the first part of the book (as with many books, it's separated into parts, and within those are the chapters) was previously published as a standalone short story in a collection I read last year.

Finished Lorna Doone. I liked it, thought wasn't too enamoured of the characters. Though my reading took a little longer than anticipated, mainly because I've gone a little magic crazy recently. Just a tad.

Now reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Very Happy You know, I quite liked it. A bit of a quick read, though; I wish there was a bit more detail to it. But I suppose it being a children's book, that's to be expected. But I liked the story, so I'm not too fussed.

Now reading The Tenant Of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte.

Cool. I'm glad you liked it. Smile

I'm actually re-reading The Silver Chair right now... slowly (keeping pace with the NarniaWeb podcast commentary). I'm also reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman, but I'm not liking it as much as I thought I would.

I dropped Rot & Ruin (didn't hold me as well as I liked, and it was due back at the library).

Now I'm working on Dune: House Harkonnen, and also slowly working my way through Walt Simonson's Thor Volume 2 and New Mutants Classics Volume 1.

Took me about two hours yesterday, but I read an ARC copy of Joe Schreiber's upcoming book Game Over, Pete Watson. It's aimed at younger readers, but I actually enjoyed it. Quick, fun read that made me laugh some. It's interesting to see authors write for different age groups, especially when it's a author you typically think of as a horror writer who often indulges in graphic violence and disturbing imagery.

It's Freedom To Read Week here in Canada. Freedom To Read Week celebrates intellectual freedom in Canada and it is celebrated by reading a banned or challenged book. This year my chosen book is Brave New World by Aldous Huxley.
