Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Rising Son last night, which was rather disappointing. The last 100 pages should have been the main focus of the whole book. It feels like there either should have been two Jake Sisko books, but the Editors realized the story didn't warrant that. I was hoping that the story would be more of a Travelogue from a writer exploring a new territory to find himself. I really didn't like the angle that was taken for Dez and his interest in Jake, it felt very one note. However, the last 100 pages were fun and interesting and revved me up to relaunch again.

As well, I started Unity last night. I'm about 50 or so pages in and loving it. Granted, I have a quibble about the first chapter (~18 pages!) being one of those boring "Two Superhero Teams have misunderstanding and fight each other before realizing they have to work together"-type battle. It felt so... unnecessary and out of character for the Defiant crew to do. And while the 3rd chapter is a big recap, it somehow felt really well handled. I'm super stoked for this book, though!

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finished reading STNF: Blind Man's Bluff last night. I enjoyed it, it was definitely one of the better books in the series, although it still wasn't up the quality of Vanguard, Titan, or pretty much any of the other lit series. I kind of wish we could have gotten a little more closure to the D'Myruj story. I also didn't care for Peter David's characterizations of the Doctor or Seven. Maybe it was just me, but Seven seemed a little more human than I remember her being in the last few Voyager books, and I find it hard that it would be so hard to convince The Doctor to help get rid of Morgan. I know he has the thing for hologram's rights and all of that, but I would have expected him to be willing to look past that once they explained just how big of a threat she was. I know he did help in the end, but I just would have expected it to happen quicker. My rating: 7.5/10
I also started CSI creator Anthony Zuicker's first novel, Level 26: Dark Origins. I'm a big fan of the CSI franchise, and I've had this sitting on my Nook unread for ages now, so I finally decided to give it a try. Although after seeing some of the reviews on Amazon, I'm not as sure I'll like as I was when I first bought it.

Book Six of the Dark Tower saga, Song of Susannah, almost finished. Connie Mill's "Passages", about near death experiences. And waiting in the wings, "A Rising Thunder", the new Honor Harrington book.

Which came out the same time Mass Effect 3 did.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I'm nearly done with The Valiant. I love the story, even though when I picked it up I didn't know much of the background. (I never got into TOS.) I have a pile of the Stargazer series to read next, and very much looking forward to it.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I picked up the three Myriad Universes anthologies and am nearly through the first one ('Infinity's Prism'). I don't know at this point which of the three novellas collected in IP is my favorite because um still reading "Seeds of Dissent" and can't decide which of the first two ("A Less Perfect Union" and "Places of Exile") I liked better since both were excellent.

Finished up Star Wars: The Cestus Deception. While I wasn't thrilled with who was perpetrating the deception in the story, I thought the parts focusing on the ARC Trooper were very strong. All in all, a good read.

I decided to go with The Hunger Games for my current book, and I'm enjoying it a lot more than I expected to. I was planning on reading The Romulan War: To Brave the Storm next, but I might end up reading the other two books in the Hunger Games trilogy first.
