Siege Perilous (Foreworld, #5)

  • Review:

    And so it ends. The Mongoliad, then renamed "Foreworld Saga" which started with such promise ends with a whimper, in a stretched-out almost plotless nubbin of a book, and then closes the story with a piff like the flaccid fart of an old nun.

  • Review:

    Had a bit of a hard time finishing the book. At a certain point around 2/3rds of the way in the language got just too flowery and psychodelic.

    In any case, it's pretty good!

  • Review:

    So good.

    The author has a great ear for the tone of a time and place. The end is pretty heartbreaking.

The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.

  • Author: Neal Stephenson

  • Review:

    Best Stephenson in years.

    Looks like having Nicole Galland as a co-author has done wonders.

    Plot is tighter, writing is even, and the book even has an ending! Yes, an actual ending!

    So this is probably more of a Galland book? I need to read more of what she has written.
