Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just ordered Star trek - The Captain's Table Omnibus from Amazon.com. For about $6, I get the 6 Captain's Table books (not counting Tales from the Captain's Table) in one big book. I've heard good things about the Captain's table books, so I'm excited to get it.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished A Time to Sow on the train this morning. Quite enjoyable, but then I'm predisposed to liking Dilmore and Ward from Vanguard. I actually think the book does one of the best jobs of utilizing all the crew, too. (Troi seems a little underused, but she has two good scenes. And I imagine she'll have some more to do in the second book.)

Got about two chapters into A Time to Harvest which has a really cool Riker chapter where's being all encouraging/mentoring.

kirk55555 It's been a long time, but I tried re-reading Dujonian's Hoard recently and couldn't get through more than 15 pages.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finished Destiny: Gods of Night by David Mack on Friday. It was an enjoyable read and I loved the crossovers between the Enterprise, Titan and Aventine. The only aspect that annoyed me was the cut to the Columbia segments. I know they're essential to the story, and on its own it was quite interesting, I just wish that all of the Columbia elements were in the second novel. Book One would then have a more shocking WTF!?! factor.

Anyways, I'm taking a bit of a break and reading the (so far), rather excellent Ex Machina by our very own Christopher. A popular choice of late, it seems.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Gotta get "Ex Machina" (did I just say that I have to get out from the machine?). Finished "Taking Wing" by Martin & Mangels; then finished "The Red King" by Mangels and Martin; and, am now reading "Orion's Hounds" by Bennett. Destiny lies in the future.

Any chance that all this renewed interest in Ex Machina could lead to another book in the series? I'll rebuy it as an ebook if it'll help.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

It's funny this is all coming up now, I just finished reading Ex Machina myself! I've had it on my pile for some time, and it was Forgotten History that finally led me to picking it up.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just wrote my review for Una McCormack's Hollow Men. Superb book, especially since it features one of my favorite characters and is a follow-up to one of my favorite all-time episodes!

Right now, I'm reading Escape From Camp 14, the story of a young man who defected from North Korea. Really touching, and incredible what people in that country have gone through and continue to experience to this day.

I just finished Vanguard: Storming Heaven. Wow! That's the only word I can think of right now to describe my feelings about it.

I'm now reading New Frontier: Fire on High.

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just posted my review of The Technologists, a great historical mystery novel by Matthew Pearl set around the first class of MIT. Although it is riveting, I found it slightly less interesting than his previous works. Still, I really enjoyed it.

I just started 2312 by Kim Stanley Robinson. I loved the Red/Gree/Blue Mars series. I hope this is equally enjoyable. This should keep me going until Plagues of Night becomes available next week.
