Sounds like a good recommendation for our April It's All Relative theme, gmw.

Yes, that is a possibility. The story fits that theme on multiple fronts.

Read the novella All Systems Red by Martha Wells. Apparently, this will be a series with more installments expected this year. I liked the theme and the writing was witty and precise. Lots of android introspection but not enough to throw me out of the story. This wasn't bad at all. Rated B- [4 stars].

I seem to be a bit behind here, and worse, the Olympics are interfering with progress! So, I finished Into the Fire, which was good, but perhaps not quite at the top of her game. Still, an author I am always willing to read on release day.

Currently reading the second book in the WWW trilogy from Robert J. Sawyer. Not going as well as the first, I think I'm getting tired of the main character. OTOH, it's not going _badly_, just not as well as the first book. Perhaps a bit of middle-book-of-the-trilogy blahs. The third is available at the library, so I'll likely read it just to finish things off.
Finished. Doing a quick re-read of Passing, the New Leaf Book Club book for this month to remind myself of the details, and then on to book three of the WWW trilogy from Robert J. Sawyer, Wonder.

And I also (unusually) started another book - Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. I got this on offer last year for £0.49.

However, I find the style and predictable disaster-movie plot too dull, despite the great idea at the heart of it. Abandoned.

Just finished the Annotated Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. As is the case with many classics, the description of the book leaves me uninterested but I enjoyed the book itself.

I am three chapters into Pride and Prometheus by John Kessel, a sequel to Pride and Prejudice. Mary Bennett, verging on spinsterhood, meets the enigmatic Victor Frankenstein. The chapters alternate between Mary, Victor, and the Creature. Very good so far, as I would expect from Kessel.

Finished Warcross by Marie Lu. Very entertaining contemporary Sci-Fi. I'll be interested in reading a sequel if it ever comes out.

Speaking of sequels fresh out, I have the third "Disrupted Magic" book recently published and Vatta's Peace on the shortlist, but I also want to read a book by Dave Mustaine and I should start The Old Man and the Sea for the New Leaf Book Club soon...

It's short. You'll devour it. Or at least, I did. I'm holding off until right before the discussion, since I've already read it in the last few years, so just want to refresh my memory.
