February 2012 - Leap Year Reads?
Posted 03 February 2012 - 03:47 PM
Grim, realistic and mature.
A somewhat depressing book. More often than not it doesn't feel like Sci-Fi at all. Is our world going to be like that within the next 20 years? Who knows? We will see.
A very good book.
The next one is a return from reality to fantasy.
The Malazan Book of the Fallen has been waiting for me.
Book 5, Midnight Tides.

Also just got notice that my holds on Mastiff by Tamora Pierce and Kraken by China Mieville are ready, so I have a lot of reading to do in the next couple weeks!
I was being lazy with my post, I did check the online catalog but I have to make the trip down there to pick it up.

Going to read some Sharon Kay Penman next, I'm excited about that. Very meaty.

I liked Hammer better than Folding Knife, but they are both excellent.

Haven't read Blackout/All Clear yet, but have read her Doomsday Day Book and To Say Nothing of the Dog which also have the future historians travelling back to periods in history. Both are great.
Currently I'm starting The Sunne in Splendour. Ijust finished King's 11/22/63, another history/time travel book to follow the theme of this post.

Also read Galactic North by Alastair Reynolds. Most of the stories in the collection were fairly good. The title story of the collection was good, but I wish Reynolds had put it in with Absolution Gap instead of writing it separately.
Now reading Percepliquis by Michael J. Sullivan.

The story is separate because Reynolds actually wrote it years before Absolution Gap (It was originally published back in 1999).

Luckily I have a bit of free time coming up so I should be able to get through a few books!

Now I've started The Player, Michael Tolkin's very dark comic story of a Hollywood producer.

I've already devoured 150 pages of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. I'm loving it so far.
