As far as the book: A bit preachy and a bit heavy on just following around each new clue -- rather than really being strong on deduction. OK, but I've wondered if someone else is writing this one for him.
    I am having trouble getting into it. Really slow developing. Not like many of the other series which are really tense from the jump.

    Just finished SILVER, SWORD AND STONE which is a very good account of the Central and South American problems which began long before Columbus arrived.

    Just finished The 7 and 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle (a recommendation from my brother).

    Pretty entertaining. Agatha Christie by way of Quantum Leap. Lots of twists and turns, very engaging. Guy wakes up with no memory at a big manor house and is eventually told that he's going to relive the same day over and over (in different "host" bodies) until he can solve the mystery. Each body interacts with the others and adds new perspectives to the solution.

    Annihilation could probably be considered "horror."

    If you're looking for trippy sci-fi horror.

    I'll check it out. In general, I like the paranormal stuff. Don't know why. I guess it pairs well with the fact that my 5 year old randomly comes into our bedroom in the middle of the night and just stands in the doorway.

    I just started Historical Dynamic, which is an interesting theory on how societies develop and collapse. Related to Secular Cycles and Millennial Trends. I'm not sure how trusted Turchin is in historical circles: cliodynamics seems very interesting but also isn't very popular.

    I'm a fan of the Witcher game series. I played the 1st in college, skipped the second one, and played a good bit of the 3rd. The lore surrounding the series fascinated me, so I looked into the books. I read the first two books, which are actually collections of short stories. The stories are good for introducing the characters, locations, and the lore. "Blood of Elves", while the 3rd book written, is actually the 1st book in "The Witcher Saga".

    Short answer, I'm only on the first chapter, but Sapkowski's writing style is very palatable. I'm not a reader by any means, but I enjoy these so far.

    They say you don't have to read the short stories to get into the saga, but I suspect it will help along the way to know who they're referencing.

    If you're curious, the Books in order are:

    Last Wish
    Sword of Destiny

    Blood of Elves
    Time of Contempt
    Baptism of Fire
    The Tower of the Swallow
    The Lady of the Lake
    Season of Storms
