Found it a bit repetitive over Sapiens and Homo Deus, both of which I thought were great.

Thumbs up

Finally got my finger out and started on The Expanse. Mighty enjoyable, of course, and kudos to Edinburgh City libraries for getting them in. Finished the first three, and currently in the reservation queue for Cibola Burn, as they only have two copies.

Previously didn't know that James Corey was a nom de plume for two people. Every day's a school day, eh?



While I'm waiting on that, I've got started on Greg Bear's War Dogs series, which is similar in tone and content, not a bad wee read thus far;

Just finished Artemis by Andy Weir. Not as good as The Martian, but still a very entertaining read.

Finished The Meg by Steve Alten. I watched the film and hated it but got told that the book was considerably better and it really is. Very different story to the film and far better pacing. Smashed it in just a couple of days. Now gone back to one my old favourite series and reading "Dexter Is Delicious" by Jeff Lindsay. All of them (with the exception of Dexter In The Dark, which was painful, supernatural toss) have been great so far.

Sleeping Beauties by Stephen and Owen King - A bit shit and tough going. My feeling is that, as is common with most "collaborations" (a friend of mine has written a few of the Tom Clancy Net Force books, and has explained how it works), Owen King wrote it, and they just tacked his dad's name on there to sell a few more copies.

Actually, I thought he only wrote about 4. Turns out it was all of them.

I've read a couple. It's nothing to brag about. They're utter shit.

Actually was referring to your extra sales point, but I guess it might be true for the number written.
