Harry's Reading Record for 2019

1st Jan: "Personal", by Lee Child.

The 19th book in the "Jack Reacher" series, and an enjoyable romp, as always. This one sees Reacher on the trail of an assassin targetting a meeting of the G20 in London. Recommended.

3rd Jan: "The Egyptian Book of the Dead", by E.A. Wallace Budge.

Part of my on-going (and VERY long term!) project to read all the Penguin Classics. The Book of the Dead is a collection of ancient Egyptian funerary "spells" to provide the deceased person with the information required to safely navigate the perils of the underworld and reach the "Field of Reeds" - a heavenly analogue of Egypt - where he or she could spend eternity in an idyllic existence while other people did all the work . Fascinating, although definitely not a book to read from cover to cover in a single read. Next on the list is "The Penguin Book of Hebrew Verse", which will be something completely different and new to me.

3rd Jan: "Bedlam's Edge", by Mercedes Lackey and others.

A collection of short stories set in the world of elves, bards, etc, encountered in her "Bedlam's Bard" and "Serrated Eges" series. Bought from Baen in 2005, and very enjoyable.

6th Jan: Gently Floating", by Alan Hunter.

The 11th book in the "George Gently" series. This one has Gently investigating the murder of the owner of a boatyard on the Norfolk Broads. Enjoyable, as always. Highly recommended.

Been away on a long trip, during which I read the following:

"The Penguin Book of Hebrew Verse", by T. Carmi.
Books 19.5, 20, 21, 22 of the "Jack Reacher" series.
"Crocodile on the Sandbank" by Elizabeth Peters.
"Music to my Sorrow", by Mercedes Lackey & Rosemary Edghill.
"Twilight at the Well of Souls", by Jack L. Chalker.
"Old Soldiers", by David Weber.
"Bridge of the Separator" by Harry Turtledove.

5th Feb: "The Cross-time Engineer" by Leo Frankowski.

This comprises the first third of the Baen "Conrad Starguard" omnibus that I bought in 2004. A very enjoyable time travel romp about a young engineer accidentally transported back to 13th century Poland, and his attempts to kick-start an early industrial revolution to hold off the Mongol invasion he knows will be coming in a few years' time. Extremely enjoyable.

6th Feb: "Past Tense", by Lee Child.

I'm now completely up-to-date with the Jack Reacher series, which I've very much enjoyed.

7th Feb: "The High-Tech Knight" by Leo Frankowski.

This comprises the middle third of the Baen "Conrad Starguard" omnibus that I bought in 2004, and continues the story of a young engineer accidentally transported back to 13th century Poland, and his attempts to kick-start an early industrial revolution to hold off the Mongol invasion he knows will be coming in a few years' time. Extremely enjoyable.

8th Feb: "Crisis", by Felix Francis.

His latest release. Set, as always, in the world of horse racing, this one features a "trouble shooter" hired by a wealthy Arab Sheikh to investigate the death of one of his best horses at a fire at a training stable in Newmarket. Excellent, and highly recommended. I actually borrowed this one from the library because the ebook is still too expensive. Doubtless the price will fall when the paperback is released later this year.

8th Feb: "The Radiant Warrior" by Leo Frankowski.

This comprises the final third of the Baen "Conrad Starguard" omnibus that I bought in 2004. A very enjoyable time travel romp about a young engineer accidentally transported back to 13th century Poland, and his attempts to kick-start an early industrial revolution to hold off the Mongol invasion he knows will be coming in a few years' time. Extremely enjoyable.

12th Feb: "Revelation Space, by Alastair Reynolds.

The first book of his that I've read, and a very enjoyable example of hard SF "space opera" on an epic scale.

Amazon description:

Quote:
Nine hundred thousand years ago, something wiped out the Amarantin. For the human colonists now settling the Amarantin homeworld Resurgam, it's of little more than academic interest, even after the discovery of a long-hidden, almost perfect Amarantin city and a colossal statue of a winged Amarantin. For brilliant but ruthless scientist Dan Sylveste, it's more than merelty intellectual curiosity - and he will stop at nothing to get at the truth. Even if the truth costs him everything. But the Amarantin were wiped out for a reason, and that danger is closer and greater than even Syveste imagines ...
Highly recommended. My only complaint is the rather lax editing of the book. Numerous typos, and in several places the protagonist "Dan" becomes "Don".

13th Feb: "The Flying Warlord", by Leo Frankowski.

This is the 4th book in the "Conrad Stargard" series, and comprises the first third of the Baen omnibus called "Conrad's Lady" that I bought in 2005. A very good time-travel romp. Recommended.

14th Feb: "Gently Sahib", by Alan Hunter.

The 12th book in the George Gently series. This was an excellent read: Gently is called in to investigate when a local man (who turns out to have been a blackmailer) is eaten by a tiger in a small English village. There's no shortage of suspects - all the blackmailer's victims - but can Gently persuade anyone to tell the truth? Very good indeed, and not just for the creative use of a tiger as a murder weapon

15th Feb: "Conrad's Lady" by Leo Frankowski.

The 5th book in the "Conrad Stargard" series, and the middle third of the Baen omnibus which is also called "Conrad's Lady". Excellent time-travel story. Highly recommended!

Total books completed: 23
