The Lifecycle of Software Objects

I'm not sure why I don't like this book. I read it and it's predecessor on the strong recommendation of a friend, but it hasn't grabbed me. I was skim...more

Mission of Honor (Honor Harrington, #12)

"Blah blah blah." Secret manoevers. Big battle. More "blah blah blah." More secret manoevers. People not acting like people, but archetypes. Surprise...more

Daemon (Daemon, #1)

An absorbing technological thriller. The plot is engaging and interesting, but I found the characters a bit flat. I also thought that the Daemon was a...more

CryoBurn (Vorkosigan Saga, #14)

Generic Miles book. Nothing new, nothing interesting. The children are a bit unbelievable. The only interesting part of the book is the coda. (IMHO, t...more

Son of Avonar (The Bridge of D'Arnath, #1)

This is the first book by Carol Berg I've read. I was off-put by the flashback structure early in the book, but after finishing, I think it is necessa...more

In Fire Forged (Worlds of Honor, #5)

Two short stories and one novella.
The first short story was ok, but nothing special. It felt pro forma.
The second short story was just bad. It didn't...more

Dragon Bones (Hurog, #1)

A good, solid, interesting story. No deep insight, but a good story. The denouement and epilogue are a bit rushed, but I will be reading more of Patri...more

In the Night Garden (The Orphan's Tales, #1)
4.19
I really tried to like this book. But I just couldn't get into it. I'm sure other people will think it is amazing, but it isn't for me.

Elantris (Elantris, #1)
4.13
Very compelling. The characters were a bit too perfect, but the story was interesting and the magic system unique.

Once a Hero (The Serrano Legacy, #4)

Steal Across the Sky

I think it's supposed to be deep, but truthfully, it isn't. It's kind of boring.

The Family Trade (The Merchant Princes, #1)
3.46
Not very well written, but it seems the author has an idea and wants to finish it. This isn't really a book, as much as the first part of a book.

Guardians of the Keep (The Bridge of D'Arnath, #2)
3.82
The first third of the book, and the last quarter, are amazing. The middle is too much rehashing of what has gone before. I look forward to the next t...more

The Year's Best Science Fiction: Twenty-Third Annual Collection

Very thought provoking short story about the nature of self. Reminds me of Greg Egan, though the science isn't as "hard."
