Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I am about 60 pages into Captain's Peril by William Shatner. (Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens) I just read about 40 pages about orbital skydiving while trying to stay awake. Hoping this one picks up soon.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I blasted through The Martian by Andy Weir the other day, his debut novel. It tells the tale of a NASA astronaut who gets left behind on Mars after a botched mission abort, and subsequently has to Robinson Crusoe it as well as MacGyver himself out of the situation. I enjoy survival tales, Mars fiction and realistic depictions of spaceflight technology, so it was a blast to read. It's a real page-turner. The pitch is "Apollo 13 meets Castaway", and that's accurate.

Started Lord of the World by Robert Hugh Benson. Interesting to see what someone more than a century ago thought the future would turn out like.

Yesterday I finished the second Change novel, The Protector's War, by S.M. Stirling.

I'm now reading Star Trek: Voyager: Protectors by Kirsten Beyer.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished reading the "A Time To..." Duology A Time to Kill and A Time to Heal. I really enjoyed these two books. Having read pretty much all the post-nemesis novels, I've read a lot of references to the events on Tezwa, so it was good to read the events themselves.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

^ Nice, she lives really close to where I'm from, and I got to meet her informally by accident a few months ago when i was home visiting family and friends. Very nice lady with a great imagination.

I'm about to finish Metamorphosis by Jean Lorrah. I thought it was a pretty decent episodic novel that dealt interestingly with some theological/faith issues, and although there's not a ton of action, it's a good character book for Data. That said, I wouldn't like to see this story on screen, I think it's best kept enjoyed in one's imagination.

The writing mechanics were average, the story construction was average, but the result of the 'literary building' built by this writer was great. Meaning I thought the story was based on a pretty creative concept, and I enjoyed it. As far as episodic novels go, I give it an 7/10.

Looking for something new in the morning, I kinda just want something action-heavy, where the Federation just gets in a fight with the Romulans or someone, and dialogue is mostly one-liners. Between this and Warped, I had to think a little more than I intended to when I picked them up.

Just finished "The Shocks of Adversity" and am about 40 pages in to "No Time Like the Past." Interesting crossover.
