    It's pretty much line for line the same as the film, but with character perpectives (most notably River's and Jayne's), and a hell of a lot of references to the Firefly series :p

    Whoa, I loved the "Nightwatch" movie. I wanted to read the books, but I know only one person who has them... and he has them in Russian :(

    I have Nightwatch and Daywatch English Translations.

    Nochnoi Dozor ISBN 0-434-01412-5
    Dnevnoi Dozor ISBN 0-434-01443-5

    They're the translation ISBNs. The books are awesome. Though the Day Watch film is based on Books Two and Three of the first novel, and Day Watch is mainly focused on Alisa and Edgar of the Day Watch, with Anton only appearing majorly in the final book of the novel.

    Now I have to wait for Twilight Watch and Final Watch :p

    Probably. I know that we elect one constituent per area, and the party with most constituencies win the election :p I also know that laws have to pass through 3 motions in Parliament, pass through Lords (if it fails, Parliament can get it through with the Parliament Act), and then the Queen must sign it, but she never turns down laws.

    That's about all I know :p

    I've just finished Philip K. Dick's "Ubik".

    I don't understand why is this book referred to as "science-fiction". :confused:

    "Kushiel's Dart" by Jacqueline Carey.

    It's an awesome book, if oddly written and 1000 pages long. That is, if you can stand reading about a masochistic courtesan :p
