Now Reading: The Shockwave Rider
Just Finished: Pandora’s Star
Books that tell several interweaving stories at once can be quite interesting. If the author is a storyteller with an impeccable sense of pacing who can throw in creative cliffhangers where appropriate, such a book can be quite a page-turner. Unfortunately, if one of the threads is less than interesting, then finishing the book can become quite a chore. In this case, the chore may have been in vain, since this book was quite obviously written to kick off a series. Very little was resolved by the end— quite disappointing.
