Will's Recent Updates

The Martian by Andy Weir
"Sorry I didn't like this as much as you probably did."
East of West, Vol. 1 by Jonathan Hickman
"Oh, dystopian sci-fi! Crap like this is why I don’t read you that often!

Let’s see: the American Civil War lasted a lot longer because Native Americans got involved. Mystical stuff happened and the world (or was it just this country) was divided up..." Read more of this review »

Not much plot. It's a decent tech description of a generation ship.

Boring fluff with a protagonist who can think of nothing better to do than stalk an incredibly dangerous prison escapee, with no plans of what to do when she find him. There are a number of headdesk moments, but the biggest one is when she barely get ...more

Just because a book is written from the point of view of a 12 year old, doesn't mean that all the dialogue should sound like it was written by a 12 year old. The ending in particular is cringe inducing.

Lucius Shepard
“When the tragedies of others become for us diversions, sad stories with which to enthrall our friends, interesting bits of data to toss out at cocktail parties, a means of presenting a pose of political concern, or whatever…when this happens we commit the gravest of sins, condemn ourselves to ignominy, and consign the world to a dangerous course. We begin to justify our casual overview of pain and suffering by portraying ourselves as do-gooders incapacitated by the inexorable forces of poverty, famine, and war. “What can I do?” we say, “I’m only one person, and these things are beyond my control. I care about the world’s trouble, but there are no solutions.” Yet no matter how accurate this assessment, most of us are relying on it to be true, using it to mask our indulgence, our deep-seated lack of concern, our pathological self-involvement.”
Lucius Shepard, The Best of Lucius Shepard

Dessa
“There is some mercy after all in our design:
a soft amnesia for the frequently mistreated,
an adrenal surge for the cornered and outnumbered,
a flash of light for the very nearly dead.”
Dessa, Spiral Bound

“My code of life and conduct is simply this: work hard, play to the allowable limit, disregard equally the good and bad opinion of others, never do a friend a dirty trick, eat and drink what you feel like when you feel like, never grow indignant over anything, trust to tobacco for calm and serenity, bathe twice a day . . . learn to play at least one musical instrument and then play it only in private, never allow one's self even a passing thought of death, never contradict anyone or seek to prove anything to anyone unless one gets paid for it in cold, hard coin, live the moment to the utmost of its possibilities, treat one's enemies with polite inconsideration, avoid persons who are chronically in need, and be satisfied with life always but never with one's self.”
George Jean Nathan

Nicole Blackman
“The ambitions are wake up, breathe, keep breathing.”
Nicole Blackman, Blood Sugar

Kurt Vonnegut
“Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind.”
Kurt Vonnegut
