The Yiddish Policeman's Union - Eh. I didn't hate it, but it certainly didn't feel like sci-fi to me. It reads more like a pulp detective story. Sure, it was set in an alternate history reality where a Jewish home state was created in Alaska, but it didn't grab me at all.
Rainbow's End - I liked this one a lot. Very sci-fi, as opposed to the last book I read, and I was right in the mood for it so I blew threw it. In it, the world is moving closer to that point of singularity where technology is aiding and, in some cases, controlling human life. Vinge brings the reader into this world using a man who is recovering from Alzheimer's Disease and adapting to a technological world. Very cool stuff.
Starship Troopers - Short and brilliant. Just the way I dig my sci-fi. Although this one, like The Forever War, read just as much as a war adventure. Read this by the pool in a few hours yesterday. Very different and much better than the movie (which I actually liked). Can't believe it took me this long to read this one.
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Reading is sci-fundamental.
