I finished Voilets are Blue by james Patterson and I gave it 3 stars. It was OK. Nothing special.

Now I'm on to The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi.

Quote:
Our universe is ruled by physics. Faster than light travel is impossible—until the discovery of The Flow, an extradimensional field available at certain points in space-time, which can take us to other planets around other stars.

Riding The Flow, humanity spreads to innumerable other worlds. Earth is forgotten. A new empire arises, the Interdependency, based on the doctrine that no one human outpost can survive without the others. It’s a hedge against interstellar war—and, for the empire’s rulers, a system of control.

The Flow is eternal—but it’s not static. Just as a river changes course, The Flow changes as well. In rare cases, entire worlds have been cut off from the rest of humanity. When it’s discovered that the entire Flow is moving, possibly separating all human worlds from one another forever, three individuals—a scientist, a starship captain, and the emperox of the Interdependency—must race against time to discover what, if anything, can be salvaged from an interstellar empire on the brink of collapse.

Finished The Iron Dragon's Daughter. I think it could have better with a little more editorial involvement. Not likely to read again.

Please let us know if it was worth all hype.

Was there a lot of hype about the book? All I ever heard about it was that [name withheld*] decided to "parody" the name and cover in order to cause confusion (and get some sales in the process). I never heard much one way or the other for Scalzi's actual book though.

*No sense adding another search result for him.

That was what I was referring too.

Which was interesting. The fantasy element was very good, but for the puzzle bit the protagonists were a bit slow on the uptake and didn't question the main witness properly. I don't usually get the solution well before the protagonists.

I'll certainly consider any of her books that come up on offer.

Next up: The Pale Horseman by Bernard Cornwell. The second of his series set in the time of Alfred the Great.

I'm about a quarter of the way through Broken Homes by Ben Aaronovitch, 4th in the series. Enjoying this one.

Just finished Kevin J. Anderson's Hidden Empire. It is the first in a seven volume series that I am still unsure if I will continue. I will wait until the mood takes me, I think.

Hi everyone...I finished reading a paperback copy of "Evicted" (Matthew Desmond). I highly recommend it.

The current e-book I'm reading: "How to Hike the Appalachian Trail" (Chris Cage). No, I don't intend to hike the AT, but I like reading about the people that do!
