Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Once again my starting That Which Divides was interrupted by the excellent Errand of Vengeance and its follow up Errand of Fury series (see my thoughts on it in this thread: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=177430).

For those looking for a "proto Vanguard", this was it (IMO of course).

Now, finally on to That Which Divides

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

My choices are currently:
*Finishing "Menace from Earth."
*Re-reading "Fledgling."
*Reading "The Man with the Red Tattoo."
*Finally starting "Firefly" (the novel by Piers Anthony...not anything to do with Joss Whedon).

Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Finally finished Island in the Sea of Time today. It kept me interested, but there were certain elements that I found ... annoying.

One, I found it difficult to suspend my disbelief the further along the novel went. I cannot imagine any microcosm of US society being able to accomplish all that they did in just two short years, I don't care what kind of throwback specialists might have just happened to be around. Two, I found both the sailing jargon and the battle/firearms jargon to be beyond my comprehension, and therefore a real slog to read through as the story wore on and it took up more and more of the narrative.

I like the concept and characters enough to proceed onward to the next volume, Against the Tide of Years. I need to see what Walker will get up to in Greece. However, I did just get the new Typhon Pact installment the other day, and I'm kind of eager to check it out. We'll see where my fancy takes me.

Just finished ST Vanguard What Judgements Lie, and now am diving into Declassified in anticipation of the arrival of Storming Heaven.

Just finished The Icarus Effect (James Swallow). Thought it was pretty good.

On Book Three of The Dominion War series and to be honest it's becoming a bit of a slog

Still on my todo. The original Deus Ex is easily my favorite game ever, and Human Revolution came a lot closer to capturing the magic than I thought possible in this day and age of diluted console game-fare.

^It's by Shatner and the Reeves-Stevenses. Their collaborative process has been discussed many times on this BBS; Shatner writes Kirk's plotlines and dialogue, the R-Ses devise most of the rest, and they rewrite each other's work and Shatner has the final say on every line.

While I liked all three books, I have to agree on this.
