  • Book Club: Year Zero
    June’s Book Club selection was Year Zero by Rob Reid. (Yes, I’m a little behind with my reviews.) After my epic 600-page space adventure, I looked forward to a light and short read. Particularly, a story about the music industry.  The premise of the story was rather quirky. Quite simply, the author is the founder … Continue reading Book Club: Year Zero
  • Book Club: Into The Black
    Last month’s Book Club selection was Into The Black by Evan Currie (587 Kindle pages, 39 chapters). Admittedly, I wasn’t thrilled about 600 pages of military space opera.

    *** Beware: this review includes a few spoilers *** If you’ve read my review of Artemis, you already have a good idea about my critique of Andy Weir’s third book, Project Hail Mary. On a positive note, I liked it better than Artemis. Perhaps because this book was written in the first person, like The … Continue reading Book Club: Project Hail Mary
