What are you reading?

I gave up on 'Cat's Eye'. It was slow paced, and although I was quite enjoying its slowness, I ran out of time and had to return it to the library! Maybe I'll give it another go some time. Next up for our book club - Dissolution by CJ Sansom.
My views are my own.

VILA: I'm entitled to my opinion.
AVON: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.

I am reading The girl with all the gifts by M R Carey. Gripping book my kids bought me for mother's day.
GARETH THOMAS: Paul is a very generous man, as a human being and as an actor. The programme couldnít have been made if we hadnít got on. Our working relationship was magic.

Ooh Travisina, I love CJ Sansom. Dissolution is very powerful.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

Oh good, I'll look forward to reading it. I've not read anything by him before.

I have just finished Caliban's War and I enjoyed it as much as the first book.

Next up?

I'll probably finish it tomorrow, but the Honor of the Queen has been fantastic.

I had to wait a couple weeks before I got the second Honor Harrington novel and I remember being really annoyed. So much in fact that I nearly bought an eBook!

Now having finished the second fantastic novel I don't have to wait to read the next one, its been waiting patiently on my book shelf.

Yep I am hooked. Oops

I've been trying to track down a copy of that for years!
 
rojkerr1
me too - this is a reprint facsimile, nice to read it though!
 
Joe Dredd
I'd be interested in getting a copy if they're still available. Where did you get it from?
 
rojkerr1
think it was MIWK, got a copy from Alan Hayes

The short Victorious War was a fun read, though a bit slow in places. Now time for book 4 Field of Dishonor!
 
Gauda Cheese
Field of Dishonor might be my favourite Harrington book after Basilisk Station.

Now I have to wait for more Harrington books to arrive in the mail. Until then its time to see what all the fuss if about with Lois McMaster Bujold with:

Not the cover I have, I got an Omnibus edition which has Shards of Honor and Barrayar in it.

John Rankine, Android Planet ,Space 1999 novel, wonderful style, real name Douglas R Mason, one of the greatest british scifi writers, also writes under R M Douglas, unfortunately his Out of the Unknown story didn't survive. Binary Z next
 
Gauda Cheese
Nearly finished Shard of Honor. Me like a lot.
 
Gauda Cheese
Shards of Honor was.... good really good. Soon I shall start the second half of Cordelia's Honor, the Hugo winning.....

upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/4/48/Barrayar.jpg

I may have said it before, but I'll say again. I've read quite afew Hugo winning books and all of then have either been really good or fantastic..... well except for Neuromancer which was crap. Oops

I am very excited to read Barrayar!
 
Gauda Cheese
I do want to mention though that I found the epilogue to Shards to be pretty weird and no idea how it is supposed to tie in to the rest of the novel.
 
Gauda Cheese
I just got back from a con here in Melbourne and got to meet John Scalzi. Very funny and nice guy.
 
Gauda Cheese
Finished Barrayar and the book had me worried for a time. The books starts off really strong then drags sometime just after halfway.

I can see why it won the Hugo award, Bujold uses the setting of the war torn world of Barrayar to tell the story about motherhood. The thing about it for me that dragged is that because the world of Barrayar is ruled by men, Cordelia isn't often in the thick of it and some of her introspection gets repetitive.

It picks up however and I was left laughing and smiling and actually looking forward to reading more. I think the next story is the Warrior's Apprentice.

Next up?

Time to get back into the Honorverse.
