I have that book on my Kindle…I have been meaning to get to it.
I have been reading a few Star Trek novels recently as well. I read the Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Cold Equations trilogy by David Mack. The first one (The Persistence of Memory) was only okay. It was a bit of fan service. The second one (Silent Weapons) was like the love child of Blade Runner and 24, but done in the Star Trek Universe…It was actually a lot of fun. Lots of political skullduggery, with the Enterprise Crew on the back foot for a lot of it. The last part was The Body Electric. This was a big adventure with everything and the kitchen sink thrown in.
I enjoyed them. The whole trilogy is built around the return of Data, with the returned Data becoming a far more unpredictable and self assured person than the original shiny faced variety..
I broadly enjoyed them.
For a change of pace I moved on to The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. I knew that opinion on Hemingway can be a bit divided. I loved this. I loved the descriptions. I loved how the character’s growing confusion is shown subtly through the writing as he starts increasingly to talk to himself. For a short book, there is a lot of chew on in there.
Mrs. J bought be a couple of books when she was away recently, and I’m currently reading one of those (Our Game by John LeCarré).
