Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just published my review of Una McCormack's The Crimson Shadow. What a book! Liked it immensely.

Right now I'm doing a DS9 relaunch re-read; I'm currently on Mission Gamma, Book One: Twilight by David R. George III. Unfortunately, I had Goodreads set to post to Facebook. Therefore, most of my friends had the fact that I am reading "Twilight" show up on their news feeds. Sigh. No sparkly vampires in this one, thankfully!

Agreed! I loved them a ton the first time through. There's a great deal I didn't remember, though. I forgot just how great they were!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished up Vanguard with In Tempests Wake and then read Revelations and Dust. Now I'm about half way through The Crimson Shadow.

So far Crimson Shadow is a real page-turner. I'm loving the interaction between Picard and Garak. Overall I enjoyed Revelations and Dust, but large parts of the book left me wondering why we were spending so much time on these plot threads, that didn't seem to go anywhere. I'm guessing this is laying the groundwork for one of the other novels.

I liked the tidying up of some of Vanguard's plot threads in In Tempests Wake to set the stage for Paths of Disharmony. It would've been nice if we'd had a bit more of the vanguard characters, rather than predominantly the crew of the Enterprise, but overall I thought it was a good epilogue.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

After waiting most of the year to get back to the 24th century I've just got into Revelation and Dust when it's all gone wrong...

I picked up all the Game of Thrones novels for Kindle at £0.99 each (I've had the paperbacks for ages but they're too big to tote around and read on the bus). I was going to hold off on them but I foolishly tried a chapter or two and I'm hooked.

It could be a while before I get back to 'The Fall'...

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished Revelation and Dust this morning. Took about a third of the book before it finally grabbed and held my attention. I have thoughts, but this isn't the place for them. I'll meander over to the review thread eventually - going out for the afternoon though, so it'll have to wait.

Next up, of course, is The Crimson Shadow.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished The Crimson Shadow. Great book. Una McCormack has a very readable writing style. Looking forward to next month's instalment of The Fall.

Hmm, what to read next...?

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Decided to finally read the DS9 relaunch. After The Crimson Shadow, I decided to start with A Stitch in Time - I read it back when it was first published (2000?), and its as good as I remember.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I have been reading the Riyria Revelations, a wonderful fantasy series by Michael J. Sullivan. Alternating between that and of course, Star Trek. Currently reading Revelation and Dust by David R. George III. Finally, it's picking up after a really slow start. Back to reading...

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Took a small break from Vanguard #7: What Judgements Come, to finish off David Mack's mirror universe novel, Rise Like Lions. It was fantastic! I began reading it a few months ago when i was on a plane, and forgot that i hadn't finished it. Highly recomended to everyone

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Albion (Alan & Leah Moore, John Reppion, Shane Oakley & George Freeman) - A lovely tribute to the forgotten British IPC and AP comics characters, some of whom I'm old enough to remember. (I certainly remember and recognised Captain Hurricane (who's actually the scariest character), Grimly Feendish, Robot Archie, and various others).

Storywise, it could have done with better editing - bits are too rushed and other bits are too empty - but overall it was good fun, with a nice meta plot, and endless references and easter eggs. Best of all, the trade paperback also included some of the original 60s and 70s strips, which is cool.

This is something that the British film or TV industry really ought to do on screen (perhaps Moore would be less hostile to that)...
