Just starting the multi-award winning "Ancillary Justice" by Ann Leckie - which I think a few others may have mentioned in earlier threads, as I've certainly seen it referenced somewhere online that I've visited.

It was ok and nowhere near as great as some of the reviews had indicated.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelly



I haven't read it since I was a kid, and I didn't understand it then.

The book was definitely written by a teenage girl. Everyone is so pretty, and the people are so nice, and everyone loves each other so much that they have rainbows coming out of their asses . . . except for the experiment and the monster, which are icky.

But I hadn't realized what an immature and selfish person Frankenstein was, or that the monster was his physical, intellectual, and moral superior.

Thought it was good, not great. Expected a bit more actually given all the hype surrounding it when it came out years ago. It's my first Gischler novel so figured I'd start with his debut. Shows promise, but definitely a little rough around the edges. I assume his work smoothed out with succeeding books -- of which I have 2 of them on my shelf (Pistol Poets, The Deputy) which I plan on reading at some point.

In the meantime, I just started:

Having really enjoyed Vinge's other novels, I was rather surprised at how much of a slog this was to read (especially since it was a Hugo winner for best novel). The technology was unrealistic (it's only set 11 years from now) and the "technobabble" was nearly incomprehensible to me (and I've tons of jargon-heavy sci-fi over the years).

I have his last novel, The Children of the Sky, ready but now I'm hesitant.

Finished up the last one, liked it as much as the others. It looks like there is one more after this, so hopefully Martin will have his second to last book out by the time I finish A Dance with Dragons.
