She ended up wrapping them up more quickly than she ought to have, but overall, a really good book I thought.
    You have more patience than I do, lol. I think I disliked it so much because it reminded me of the books I was forced to read in high school for a report.

    Fair enough

    I think the reason it didn't remind me of the books I was forced to read in high school was that it was funny. The books I read in high school were not.

    He is one of my top five favorite horror writers, so now I get to see how he is as a sci-fi writer.

    I've been tempted by Eric Nylund, but I would like to wait until the series is finished. I don't really know yet how many books are planned in this Mortal Coils setting.

    I don't have 10 books lined up. Heck, i don't even know that many books I'm waiting to read.

    I'm working my way through the Destroyermen Series by Taylor Anderson. I'm on Rising Tides and even though there are some things I have to take with a grain of salt, it's only a small grain.

    I'm kind of in an alternate history groove right now, but I'm always looking for something good to get my hands on.

    You won't be disappointed. The Hyperion books have elements that are actually befitting of the influence the Internet has in our everyday lives currently.

    Replay is fantastic! Definitely one of my two best reads from last year and one of my favorite books all time. I hope you enjoy it.

    I want to read Among Others too. Hoping I might get my hands on it in time for the March book of the month discussion.
