To try to add some normalcy into this queue reading for Project 10 Book I decided to pick something more my regular preferences. Space opera, hard scifi, whatever it's called. I read the book before Iron Sunrise, Singularity Sky a long time ago. My guess would be 7+ years ago, but I'm not sure. Anyway - I recall not liking it much. I'm not even sure if it was justified!
I seem to remember the beginning of Singularity Sky having cell phones falling from the sky, and having some bad taste from there. So anyhow, I avoided Iron Sunrise because of it, but had bought it anyway (what a weird habit that is). I'm about 150 pages into Iron Sunrise and it's engaging, the type of scifi I was looking for, and I'm interested in the characters. Signs are good! Hopefully I'll be back with a positive review in a week or so. :)
