I need something good to get rid of the bad taste that Lost Symbol left me with:

Ringworld Engineers

What an incredible toybox we have with Known Space, and I haven't even started the Man-Kzin wars yet.

I love the guy, but I was disappointed. It's very funny at times, but it's also self-consciously quirky, messy, familiar, overlong, and filled with obvious satire that doesn't work.

That's too bad. I plan on picking up his new autobiography in the next couple of weeks, so I'll report back on what I thought as well.

The parts that have been read on the show have been funny, so I imagine it will be much better. It's plotting and character that trips him up.

I mostly picked it up because it was so cheap (1.59), but it's really good so far so I'm glad I did.

Read this since it was free. It was a novella, and not great:

Re: What are you reading? (September 2009)

Just finished I Lived to Tell It All by George Jones and Tom Carter, after having finished off My Word Is My Bond by Roger Moore. I think I'm going to take a break from the memoirs genre with my next read, which will be Sideways by Rex Pickett. I loved the film, and was ecstatic to find a copy of the original novel recently. The only thing that concerns me is that, thanks to my Crohn's, I've had to give up drinking and I just know this book is going to make me want some wine....
