Books I have read in 2006 (in no particular order)
Sean Davies "staticking"
The Pirates! In an Adventure with Communists
"More japes and horse-foolery with The Pirate Captain and his crew!"
"Intelligent and gripping twist on the vampire tale, a little slow going - the pace doesn't pick up until the very end"
"I laughed out loud on countless occassions throughout this book, then blubbed like a baby as I read the final chapters coming into land at Naples airport. The cabin crew thought I was weird."
The Blind Watchmaker
"Worth reading just for the chapter on the evolution of sonar in bats. Dawkins writes science with a passion that you cannot help but be swept up by."
The Confusion (Baroque Cycle 2)
"Excellent. Perhaps the finest collision of sword-fights, maths, whores, witty asides, commerce, Spanish dukes suffering from Tourette's, Jesuit Samurais, syphillis, and international intrigue!"
Perdido Street Station
"Quite a simple (though gripping) plot, that is made compelling by the amazing world that Mieville has conjured up. Some of his creations will blow your mind."
Revelation Space (GOLLANCZ S.F.)
"Good solid space opera, but I felt that the main plot line was a bit boring and wished that the author would delve deeper into the intriguing sub-plots and back-history"
Thud!: A Discworld Novel
"Trademark Pratchett, and Vimes at his second best (see Nightwatch for that!). I love the fact that Pratchett is getting angrier. A timely novel of the stupidity of religious/cultural squabbling."
Dark Tower I: The Gunslinger: Gunslinger Bk. 1
"I had high hopes for this, so I'm going to trust everyone else and hope that the second book is the one that sucks me in..."
The Winter Queen (Erast Fandorin 1)
"A fun and wry thriller, shows plenty of promise to develop into a series of ripping yarns"
The Traveller (The Fourth Realm Trilogy)
"Very disappointing. Uses every cliche in the same old way. Add one part highlander, two parts Matrix then sprinkle with a predictable and poorly written story"
Gateway (S.F. MASTERWORKS)
"Has so much more potential. The main idea could have been used far more effectively as the backdrop to a sprawling space opera. Instead its used to hang-out some dreary and dated psycho-analysis"
Friends, Voters, Countrymen
"Reading this intelligent and gently humourous book has almost dispelled the image of a hopelessly blundering buffoon, almost! And though I'm no Tory, he does talk an awful lot of sense sometimes."
"My favourite SF writer. Galaxy spanning and brimful of marvellous ideas and creations; Banks also provides some truly hilarious moments. Highly Recommended."
Slaughterhouse 5, or The Children's Crusade - A Duty-dance with Death
"I agree with the reader's review titled "Cult classic rather than great novel". Vonneguts other SF books work much better as novels in their own right."
Going Postal: A Discworld Novel
"Not the most amazing Discworld novel, but then again, even a bad Discworld novel is still excellent and highly enjoyable."
The Big Over Easy: Nursery Crime Adventures 1
"Just started reading this, and am already thoroughly enjoying it...stay tuned for my final opinion!"
This Thing Of Darkness
"Excellent re-telling of the voyages of the Beagle, the ship that took Darwin on his travels of discovery. Very good and all the better for being true!"
Explorers of the New Century
"Darkly comic allegory, with an amazing revelation that will shock."
