Welcome to Empirical Purple

A blog by Simon Brady to cover a surprisingly wide range of geekiness, in a combination that no-one else does quite the same way. Probably. Either that, or it'll just be Simon talking about the likes of Football (usually the Soccer variety), PC & Tabletop Gaming, WWE, Movies, Music and occasionally even my actual job of Graphic Design, depending on what I'm up to in the world.

A Good Sequel

The second book in the Galatic Football League series, The Starter is the next audiobook I'm listening to.

Taking up from where The Rookie left off, the story of Quentin Barnes' career through the GFL moves onwards and upwards.

Episode two, in particular, had me laughing out loud a couple of times. I'm enjoying this more than the first one, so far, as the pre-developed characters are now really starting to take off on their own.

It is certainly more of the same compared to the first book, but without the need for all the exposition, As You Know speeches and intergalatic history, it flows much better. The conversations feel less stilted, back to the story rather than having to describe the state of this futuristic galaxy.

Plus, the main character is much less of a douchebag than last time, so that's a bonus.
