What I'm Reading

The Sunrise Lands The Sunrise Lands by S.M. Stirling

My review

rating: 3 of 5 stars
I like SF/Disaster-type novels. Rebuilding civilization even. Heck, I liked the tv series Jericho.

I don't care for fantasy. This series is rapidly becoming fantasy. I feel kind of cheated. I thought in this part of the series we were going to find out why the Change happened. While it's interesting to see what went on east of Oregon, it's getting more and more like fantasy. While no one seems to have developed magical powers yet and little fairies and elves have not cropped up, I had to just skim the last part.

Oh wait. There *are* magical visions and powers cropping up! D'oh! It's getting fantastical. Drat.

I expect I'll keep hanging on just to see what the Change is all about, but I'll be doing it skimming style.

View all my reviews.

I'm reading fantasy too: a book about Money and Banking!

P.S. I just belatedly subscribed to you.

I renamed my self-aggrandizing blog to "They'll Say ANYTHING!"
