Quote from: Dave Michuda on September 19, 2008, 04:19:51 PMI'm about half way through Greg Bear's latest "City at the End of Time". A difficult book so far. Too many central characters & a confusing plot are making this a tough read. But some of the ideas will keep me going to the end. I hope the pay off is worth the struggle.Next up...Anathem by Neal Stephenson.
QuoteI'm almost done with the audiobook of The Vampire Lestat which is the second of Anne Rice's series, the Vampire Chronicles. The first half of the book bored me to the point that I almost gave up several times but it has become much more interesting in the second half. What started out as a lot of emo whining about inter-vampire relations has turned into an interesting study of the difficulties of immortality, as well as some interesting stuff about where the vampires came from in Anne Rice's vampire mythos.
