To Sleep in a Sea of Stars
A sleeper of a book. A read that keeps you entertained with vivid imagery and great science. Paolini does a great job of expanding on true theoretical physics. He does a fantastic job of take what should be an inanimate parasite and giving it life. Pun intended when you read the book.
The End of Life as We Know It
Dr. Guillen’s fact based presentation of the wins and woes of technology present a clear and direct path to the absolute destruction of our world if we are not careful. We will have to be careful about the way we move forward or every science fiction movie will be right.
Children of Ruin
These books start off the worst book of all time. Full of confusion, inconsistent voice issues, as well as straight up poor story construction makes it very hard to jump into the book. This is all saved by the end where all the bits make sense, that frustratingly makes you look forward to more.
Witcher Series: Last Wish, Sword of Destiny, and Blood Elves
A great continuation of the Witcher series. Expanding on the relationships, settings, and politics. From assassin's, mages, and kings, it will for sure feel like a season of Game of Thrones. This book is worth the read if you have played the games or watched the show.
Ghost: Confessions of a Counterterrorism Agent
This was a superb book with stories of our fight with terror groups from the 80s to just before/after 9/11 from a Counter Terrorism Agent. Frank does a immaculate job putting stories in front of you highly the thought process of each step without putting you to sleep.
What You're Really Meant to Do
This book does a fantastic job of presenting ways that you can rethink where you are in your career and the steps you can take to move where you want to go. Beyond all of that, the stories he tells and the questions he ask of those in the stories have already made me make changes.
This book does a great job with the description of technology, places, and cultures, but this book feels like a .5 in the series. For instance, the first book The Last Sword Maker has a great full story of events, where this one felt like a filler almost an entire book that is a filler episode.
