I am currently reading
Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid. It’s a prestige posting, and life couldn’t be better… although there are a few strange things going on…
- every Away Mission involves lethal confrontation with alien forces
- the ship’s captain, its chief science officer and the handsome Lieutanant Kerensky always survive those encounters
- at least one low-ranked member is, sadly, always killed
I’m taking a break from the 1000 page mammoth that is The Wise Man’s Fear, and reading something lighter.
Last year I watched Star Trek: The Original Series for the first time, so when I started seeing this book around, I thought it would be a perfect match for me at this particular time. I’m about halfway through, and have laughed aloud a couple of times, so it’s definitely entertaining! The prologue almost turned me off, since I found the writing to be a bit underlining and simple, but after the prologue I did get more into the book. It’s definitely less character-driven than what I usually read, the main emphasis is on the parody, but it works.
Last week I finished reading
This Finnish YA crime thriller was ok, but a bit too young for me. I also read a couple more volumes of Y: The Last Man, which I’m not loving as much as other people seem to, but am still intrigued enough to read the rest.
