Re: What SF/F Book Are you Reading? .. Redux
In any case, I also said "adolescent," meaning that I often felt that Brin's writing was a more adolescent version of the more mature writing on TNG. Same style, but not as interesting.
Fair enough. While I've been liking Brin, there's no way I'd personally mention it in the same breath as "The Inner Light" or anything.
I also like Brin, but it's not like anyone's mistaking him for Gene Wolfe.
Book of the New Sun would
be the other novel series I'm currently reading, wouldn't it...
