Book of G-Quan, Soldier of Darkness, B5

[ Books ] currently reading....

I’m reading three books at the moment. Firstly, ‘All Systems Red’ by Martha Wells (I’m blaming Eglé for this :D ) which is the set reading for the next Bibliogoth (yes, it was my nomination, again I blame Eglé for that). It is a lovely book but quite short (and it is my second reading of it), so I’m reading a couple of other things at the same time so that I don’t finish it too early and forget all about it by the time of the Bibliogoth meeting (this has happened before..). So I’m reading something called ‘Starshine’ by G S Jensen. This is a space opera that is almost a compendium of all space sci-fi tropes including alien invasion, galactic porto-empires at war, love interest between enemies, etc. Not enjoying it that much but not bad enough to put it down and forget about it. Also re-reading ‘The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O’ by Neal Stephenson and Nicole Galland, which combines a ‘Many Worlds’ world, time travel and witchcraft, in the hands of two people that know how to do this sort of thing. Enjoying this one a lot. I'm on Dreamwidth at http://flaviomatani.dreamwidth.org/ -do follow me there if you can.
