A Review of Odyssey

Odyssey by Jack McDevitt My rating: 3 of 5 stars I think McDevitt's lost this series. I think he lost it when he moved the great character, Hutch, from space ship pilot to administrator. The books since then have been bland. She's been bland. It's been a huge disappointment. I miss her fire, her leadership, …

A Review of Robot City: Cyborg

Cyborg by William F. Wu My rating: 2 of 5 stars This third book of the Robot City series wasn't nearly as good as the first two. In fact, I was pretty disappointed with it. The writer just didn't seem to have it together. Maybe he's a new author. I don't know. The language was …

A Review of How Firm a Foundation

How Firm a Foundation by David Weber My rating: 5 of 5 stars Wow! Thank God. How Firm a Foundation is so much better than its predecessor, A Mighty Fortress. A huge improvement. This was a great book to read. It's the fifth book in the Safehold series and Chiris is still fighting for its …

A Review of A Mighty Fortress

A Mighty Fortress by David Weber My rating: 4 of 5 stars Oh.My.God. I can't believe I finally finished this near-1200 page monster of a book! It was brutal at times. I usually try to write complete or thorough reviews after reading a book, but I'm afraid I won't for this one. Just too damn …

Yet he still behaves like a kitten and still kind of looks like a kitten, especially compared to our older, bigger cat Henry. Henry has always been "my" cat. He's always been loyal to me. He likes/loves Gretchen, but …

Health Frustrations

I've written about my health here before at times. I have health problems. In fact, I'm on disability for Trigeminal Neuralgia and several lumbar issues. The pain can be debilitating. Most pain medications don't help. I've had to have a number of surgical procedures to help, but they're limited in scope. I also have severe …

A Review of Technogenesis

Technogenesis by Syne Mitchell My rating: 1 of 5 stars This book has to be easily one of the cheesiest books I've read in a very long time. In fact, I didn't even finish it. I made it to page 216 and gave up in disgust. It's just so damn stupid. I don't know how …
