I am not planning to read this, but the author has an article about what it's like to write SF in China, if anyone is interested: http://io9.com/this-is-what-its-like-...


Christine | 594 comments I am almost halfway through this book and am confused; perhaps we are supposed to be confused. I thought the countdown stopped when he stopped his machine? I'm getting lost in the technicalities but believe I can follow the storyline without understanding the science


Justine (justinejustine) | 563 comments I'm about 25% through this…not confused, but not sure yet if its my cup of tea. I'm planning on sticking with it though. :)

This is my first group read, so I am looking forward to that part of it.

Christine | 594 comments I'm not sure it is my cup of tea either, but am intrigues enough to continue (despite just getting Rothfuss's newest book from the library)


Justine (justinejustine) | 563 comments The Slow Regard of Silent Things? You can take breaks and read that in the in-betweens…kind of suits the Rothfuss book :)

I wonder how this book compliments the Rothfuss? Maybe in the "finished" thread you can explain for those of us with curious minds and no time to read anything extra.

I just picked this up as a Tor.com free eBook, so it's on my list to read, maybe yet this summer.

I thought it was a stand-alone. Being part of a trilogy will bump it down the list, I'm afraid, since I'm still slowly working my way through 2 other series.

It stands alone fairly well - no cliffhanger ending or anything.
