Frozen Orbit, written by Patrick Chiles
From the same author: Perigee
I do like his writing style.
The best things come in threes.
Since I’ve still got more than a day before work starts again, I’ve started another one of his books: Farside, also written by Patrick Chiles.
Though each one of these books can be read without knowing the others, they are connected, at least by the main characters. I’ve noticed I’ve started with number 3 (Frozen Orbit). The correct timeline would be: Perigee (takes place in orbit around Earth)- Farside (rescue mission to the Moon)- Frozen Orbit (flight to Pluto).
I am going between two books currently:
Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel by Andrew Graham-Dixon
and in distinct contrast
The Second Sleep by Robert Harris
I’ve started reading Andrew Hunter Murray’s debut novel, “The Last Day”, which describes a world in the future, where the Earth has stopped rotating. Since the author also writes and researches for BBC’s show QI, I expect this story to be well thought out and plausible. The first few pages were promising.
Just finished The Phoenix of Florence - Philip Kazan
and now onto The Painter of Souls - Philip Kazan
both fiction and set in and around 16th century Florence
I’ve started reading Re-Coil, written by J. T. Nicholas. He describes a future where mankind has spread out across the solar system; when a person dies, a backup of his/her consciousness can be downloaded to a new body (coil), thus expanding life expectation quite a bit - almost to eternity. Until a rogue AI threatens humanity.
The story evolves with breathtaking speed. So far, it has been a very interesting read.
Very interesting book, if it pertains to you. First time in my life that I feel like I have have found the missing pieces to who I am.
I’m reading “Otaku”, a novel written by former NFL player Chris Kluwe. The description of the story somehow reminds me of “Ready Player One” and “Ender’s Game”. I’ve read both books and really liked them, so I’m quite curious whether or not this book is as good as the other two.
Unless I’m Very Much Mistaken- Murray Walker
The voice of motor racing - and the man responsible for introducing millions of viewers to the previously inaccessible world of Formula 1 - tells the story of his incident-packed life.
