Dense and drags in quite a few places, plus a pretty sappy ending. But a few big ideas and in the end I found it worth the time.Published 1 day ago by Joe A Zucco

Another good Stephenson science fiction tale that is engaging and a wonderful read.Published 4 days ago by David Heflich
Over all good novel, but is quite lengthy to a fault, and the gimmick to use made-up words wears out fast (especially for a person whose first langue is a Romance one [i.e. Read morePublished 21 days ago by William Yousef Fadel

|What became of Jad?||
With a subject: like this, I assume everyone expects spoilers. If not, click 'back' fast.
