I’ve been reading a lot lately. Re-reading a lot of stuff, mostly, because I can no longer afford to buy books, and I don’t want to pay my library fines. Did you know Colorado sics a collection agency on your ass if you don’t pay up? Crazy.
Anyway, so I’ve read Chris Buckley’s latest, No Way to Treat a First Lady, which was great. Right up there with Thank You for Smoking (which is one of my favorite books ever. At least one of my favorite comic fiction books). Also re-read Zodiac, one of Neal Stephenson’s good ones, and a book that reminds me a lot of Zodiac, Dot.con by Ken Layne. I’ll review the Buckley book at some later date.
Now I’m finally reading a new book. I just finished re-reading all the Ender Wiggin books, except Speaker for the Dead, as I couldn’t find my copy. When I was ordering that one on Amazon I noticed that there was a new Shadow book out in paperback. I started reading Speaker, got bored (and also didn’t feel like watching that poor woman Novinah’s life fall apart as all the men in her life get vivisected by porcine aliens. I love that word, vivisected. I love you too, porcine, don’t pout), and decided to read the latest in the series, Shadow of the Hegemon. I liked the first entry in the Shadow series, Ender’s Shadow, even though I thought Bean was one of the most annoying characters in Ender’s Game. This seems to be a very good book, at least through the half-way point.
I’ll post a full review once I’m done…
