First of all, Free ebooks!
BN.com is offering a set of classic ebooks for free each week. I think its around 5, this week are books like Peter Pan, Wizard of Oz, and Alice i Wonderland.
I'd mention this week's BN.com free friday book, but I only mention books that sound cool...it doesn't.
Then there's the book I just finished, Enemies and Allies
, by Kevin J. Anderson. Simply put, it was a great book. It starts out slow, and the writing style made me wonder if it really was Anderson writing, but then it grew on me. As for the story, it was amazing. Basically, Superman and Batman are new to the world at the heart of the Cold War. Super Powers are pressing each other for a new type of arms race, the race for the super man, and Batman and Superman must team up and stop everything from McCarthyism to the Soviet problem.
To elaborate on my problem with the writing, its written like a spy novel at first. Very James Bond-esque, and I didn't expect it. As the story gets more involved it branches away from it.
I'm working on Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game now. Its pretty good, I'll give that review later.
In other news, its been a week of overtime while I'm in training. Learning tons, but getting drained. I'm no longer one for classes.
Oh, and Camp Euphoria was awesome. I'd rather talk then write about it right now. A whole lot of drinking, music, and then sleeping due to hangovers. Good times.
