Luna: Moon Rising (Luna #3)

    Awesome conclusion to my favourite trilogy of the past few years. You will probably enjoy this more if you read the three books back-to-back-to-back since I had kinda forgotten about some of the minor characters :-)

Siege Perilous (Foreworld, #5)

    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.

    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!

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

    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.
