Lock In by John Scalzi
Lock In by John Scalzi
3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, 9 Sep 2014
I wanted to love this book as much as i have loved everything else i have read from Mr Scalzi but i couldn't.. The plot is a rather ordinary detective novel that was predictable and pedestrian. The interesting part of the book the possibility of a distinct new culture was only barley touched upon and would have been more interesting. I don't like being over critical of authors as i respect how hard a job it is and is something i have no talent for. I am not sure if i would have given this a higher mark if it was written by someone else and it was just my very high expectations.
If you have never read Mr Scalzi start with another book such as the Old Man War or Red Shirts.

I was having problems getting waterproof shoes for walking my dog and had looked at these before and thought they were too cheap and must be "nasty". After not being able to get the size i wanted in my "preferred" shoe i decided to give these a try as they had such good reviews. These are excellent shoes they are waterproof and good fit i am size 8 and the size 8 are very nice fit (and i have fat feet). The shoes are excellent quality and would recommend to anyone.

This was a topic i knew nothing about and was expecting a rather dry book, however this was a very interesting book that not only gave the facts but also gave insight in to how Kim Philby manipulated his friends which was ultimately a greater betrayal than that of his country. I would recommend this to anyone.
