Re: What are you reading?

^^ I'm moving that toward the top of my list-- although the way things have been going for me, that could still be years away.

Last night I read a bit more of Hidden Empire (first volume in the Seven Suns series) but several times I got so infuriated by the endless repetitions that I had to get out of bed and pace the floor swearing and shaking my fists...

Well, maybe not, but I still had to take a deeep breath and count to ten a few times to be able to suppress my anger over the bad writing.

I may not be able to continue reading...
I think the only book that ever had that effect on me was Rogue Moon by Algis Budrys. It was an awkward attempt at adult sophistication by someone who clearly had no life experience-- sort of the nuBSG of the 1950s.
