Bypass Gemini (Big Sigma, #1)

Review:

This book is what it is. If what you want is a fun book about a guy who gets in a lot of trou­ble and then gets out of trou­ble (genre I think should be giv­en a nice long ger­man word for a name), this is one, and good at it.

It gets rock­et physics very wrong (rock­ets don't work bet­ter when they have some­thing to "push of­f"), but that's a very mi­nor nit­pick.

Wild Cards (Wild Cards, #1)

Review:

I liked this book enough, but the idea of it be­ing part of a 20+ book se­ries is daunt­ing enough that I may not con­tin­ue it.

The Coldest War (The Milkweed Triptych, #2)

Review:

This tril­o­gy is a tricky read. Most char­ac­ters just suf­fer through hor­ri­ble things.

Al­so, the way the or­a­cle's pow­er works is fair­ly ob­vi­ous, and there are (a­gain) ob­vi­ous coun­ter­mea­sures that could have been tak­en by the oth­er par­ties in or­der to ren­der her
pow­er use­less (ex­am­ple: killing her).

On the oth­er hand, it de­scribes a world that feels as if it ex­ists or ex­ist­ed, which is some­thing I re­al­ly like in sci­ence fic­tion.
