Autumn Adventures

My retreat from the post-Amazon-apocalypse-GoodReads. My shelves and my reviews, I hope, will find a safe haven here.


I like to read epic fantasy (the bigger, thicker and longer, the better) and science fiction (perfer space operas).  I also enjoy the occasional biography or history non-fiction.


Out in the real world, I'm an IT professional in the Legal industry.  Tech doesn't scare me or phase me.

Blindsight - Peter Watts I struggled through two hundred pages of this hard science fiction novel. I finally just gave up. I couldn't relate or connect to the main character. The supporting characters were also two dimensional. Some of the science was intriguing, but the prose struck me as scientific shorthand, forcing my mind to connect dots for jargon unfamiliar to it. The lone vampire character seemed like a completely random wild card element.
