Excerpt from A Wrinkle in Time

Excerpt from A Wrinkle in Time

I just finished re-reading A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle. Chances are, you've either read this book or seen the movie, or both. It has been popular since it was published in 1962, although it has also been one of the most commonly banned books. ...
Excerpt from Ready Player One

Excerpt from Ready Player One

I just finished Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline. I had certainly heard about it before, but I hadn't read the book or seen the movie. If you are looking for a book with lots of 80s pop culture nostalgia, this is the one to read! While set in 2045, the protagonist and his competitors must learn everything they can about 1980s technology, music, movies, etc. in order to solve the clues that Halliday has left behind. I don't read a lot of sci fi/futurist fiction, but this one was full of references to the TRS-80 Color Computer 2 (saving programs to cassette tapes), War Games, and so much more. ...

Excerpt from Orbs

I recently read Orbs, by Nicholas Sansbury Smith, the first book in this post-apocalyptic sci-fi series.

There are some major failings in both. If you can overlook it to enjoy the action, have at it! ...
Excerpt from The Breach

Excerpt from The Breach

Here is a thriller that I picked up recently. You wouldn't guess from the synopsis on Amazon that The Breach by Patrick Lee is science fiction; I have used a description from tor.com down below to give you a better idea! It is a good ride, with some interesting time travel paradox twists and turns and a cliffhanger ending. But you will find a hero who is not your typical good guy.  ...
Excerpt from The Twelve

Excerpt from The Twelve

Something a little different this week, a 600 page post-apocalyptic dystopian epic with viral vampires. I haven't read anything by Justin Cronin before. This is the second book in his Passage trilogy. I have found the switches back and forth through the timeline very confusing, and feel like the stories I was most interested in have been abandoned. But I'm only halfway through, so maybe the other storylines will reappear or will be resolved somehow.  ...
