Moving on! Ray was a fast (dense) read. Now to light shit. The Empty Chair. Lincoln Rhyme and his fancy wheelchair.

This was horrible.

Moving on to PA! Tropic of Kansas.

Catching up! So I read Silence of the Lambs. Man, Thomas Harris doesn't know how to end a book, eh? This is the third book of his I've read -- Black Sunday has a bizarre homage to Dr. Strangelove in the end, Red Dragon is a slow dissolution into yawn-worthyness, and Silence of the Lambs is ham-handed and silly and oooovvveeer looong at the end.

But, damn, his first and second acts are amazing.


Have you read Hannibal? It suffers from the same problem, but when it finally gets to the end... hoo boy. Completely different than the movie they made and in my mind, much better.

After three of his books I don't have the stomach for more.

Then I read Auberon, the first of several novellas before we get the final Expanse book. Amazing, as usual.


Now moving on to the sequel of this amazing book, Kingdom of Copper

Moving on to high fantasy! With a djinn twist. So far it's awesome. A real departure from the standard fantasy (even though it's still doing standard fantasy, which is fun).

Is this the first time in this 15 year old thread where you've read a book on my list before I did?

I think so.

Oh god, it *is* the end times.
