Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Raise the Dawn, and I'm more than a little shellshocked. This is, in just about every way, a far more satisfying "conclusion" to this chapter of the DS9 saga than Unity was back in the day. There are certain characters I'm definitely going to miss from now on, but every dramatic choice for the plot also rang true to each character. I am satisfied.

Now, after a couple of tylenol and a couple of hours sleep, I shall begin Brinkmanship. And thence, on to Cold Equations.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just started reading Death in Winter. Not a big JMF fan, of the admittedly small sample of his work I've read. About 40 or so pages in at the moment. Hopefully it's a quick read.

I actually haven't finished the The Hobbit yet, I was excited for it, read the first half of it by the movie, but I haven't been able to get past the 3/4 mark for whatever reason. Hoping maybe I can finish it out after some time away.

Just finished Before Dishonor. Loved it, not really sure what all the fuss was about. Moving onto Greater than the Sum today. Got the Destiny omnibus on my kindle, can't wait to start it.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Reading the novelization of Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. I don't usually like novelizations but McIntyre provides a lot of supplemental storyline to the plot which I found interesting. Curious pairing of David Marcus and Saavik as a potential love interest.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I liked how Vonda McIntyre explored the Saavik&David relationship in Startrek2&3 movie novelizations.Chimes of Midnight is one of my favorite stories from the myriad Universe books.The exploration of the David &Saavik relationship is a story I always hoped would be explored in anothther Au type os story.I'm reading Captain's blood by William Shatner.I really lke this story so far.I plan on reading Section 31 Abyss next.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II yesterday, and felt it was MUCH better than the first one.

Today I've finally been able to start Cold Equations Book III: The Body Electric! I'm about ten chapters in and I'm really enjoying it.

Up next is more Star Wars, with Shadow Games.

(And David & Saavik was one of my favorite romances when I was a teenager. Vonda McIntyre's take on them moved me so much that I had a much harder time accepting Robin Curtis's cold unemotional portrayal of Saavik, especially in the scene where she tells Kirk what's happened to David. It was only on learning that Curtis wanted to play the scene with some emotion and that Leonard Nimoy insisted she do it as a stoic full-Vulcan that I was able to eventually accept it! Not entirely fair on my part, but a compliment to McIntyre's writing.)

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I just finished Barrayar, the second book in the Miles Vorkosigan series (or at least, the second I read; reading order is a bit malleable.)

...based on the first two, I have a strong suspicion my next consecutive 13 novels will be the remaining 13 Miles Vorkosigan novels.

Wow.

The graphic novel Elric: the Balance Lost wasn't really to my taste. Recent attempts to re-read Moorcock have been uniformly unsuccessful. Maybe I've simply outgrown the Albino Prince.
I don't think it was you.

I was so excited when I heard that BOOM! had picked up the Elric license, even though it meant that Dark Horse's collection of P. Craig Russell's Stormbringer was scuttled.

I really wanted to like Elric: The Balance Lost, but it wasn't what I wanted. I wanted an Elric sword-and-sorcery story. Instead, what I got was Crisis on Infinite Eternal Champions.

There's room in the market for a sword-and-sorcery Elric comic. This wasn't it.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my latest review. This one's for the second book in Kevin Ryan's Errand of Fury series: Demands of Honor.

Finishing up Divergent by Veronica Roth, and based on a number of recommendations, I've just started on the first novella of the Corps of Engineers series, The Belly of the Beast. I've never read SCE before, and I'm eager to explore this part of Trek Lit!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm new on this message board so I thought it would be a good topic to start
A few weeks ago I rewatched the Enterprise TV series and after the last episode, I wanted to read more, so last week I finished Last full measure and now I'm reading The good that men do which I prefer. I liked Last Full Measure for the "surprise" that it contains, but the story didn't hooked me. I liked to see Mayweather more than usual and to learn more about the MACO, but the problem of relationship between the crew of the Enterprise and the MACO wasn't really interesting for me.
For the moment I really prefer The good that men do, even if for the moment I read something like one quarter of the book.

Welcome to the board!

Stick with The Good That Men Do, it's definitely better than Last Full Measure.

Oh, and I'm currently about halfway through Brinkmanship.
