but I wanted to see why this author felt it necessary to warn the reader that this would be a "harder journey".
But the series is well worth the journey.
I gave up on book 2, but came back to it a year later, pushed though it and then really started to enjoy the journey.

Definitely 1 of my favorite series, but yes its not for everyone.

Started Across the Sand by Hugh Howey. I'm surprised there is so little buzz about this. Nothing on his website and nothing in wiki. I didn't know this was coming out until it poped up on Overdrive a couple of weeks ago.

Huh, I hadn't heard about that either.

I didn't enjoy the first Sand book as much as the Wool/Silo books, but it was pretty good. I'll need to put a hold on it.

I am reading a new book, Music + Revolution - Greenwich Village in the 1960s by Richard Barone (about folk music scene). I borrowed it from the library in paperback. They don't have it in e-book format yet, and the kindle version is $22.

I heard an interview with the author Richard Barone on Leonard Lopate radio show (WBAI-FM NYC, available as podcast).

Amazon sent me emails on this, since I follow Hugh Howey. Coincidentally, I finally got around to finishing his Silo series (Dust) about two weeks ago. I haven't read Sand yet, but I bought the eBook a while back figuring that I would like it. I guess now that the second book in that series is out, I should make an effort to read the first book that I already have. I read a blurb somewhere that said this is the first book release from Howey in six years. I wonder what happened to him during that time? Obviously I wasn't following him closely. But I did like Wool - by far the best of that series IMHO - and I clicked "follow author" back when I read it.

I know he bought a sailboat and was sailing around the world for a large bit of the missing 6 years. Not really sure beyond that. He was really vocal for a while but not much in the last few years that's for sure.

Didn’t he oversee the SF version of the Self-Published Fantasy Blog-Off that started last year?

An excellent SF murder mystery, along with major plot points I should have noticed earlier!

Oh, my. I haven't read that in at least 45 years. I'll be curious to see how well you think it holds up.

I finished this up, though I was not incredibly pleased with the back half of the book.

Since then, I have read:

Cullen Bunn's Harrow County Omnibus 1
Martha Wells' Murderbot Diaries 1-3
Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (which I am almost certain was a first time read for me - it was never assigned to me in university).

I'm about to do a re-read via audio of one of my wife's all-time favorite novels in Anthony Marra's A Constellation of Vital Phenomenon. We have a signed copy of this one on our shelves. I've not read Marra in a few years so I am reviewing this one before moving on to his new novel. We also got an autographed copy of that one as well.
