Since I enjoyed reading The Three Body Problem, despite its flaws, I read the next book in the series.
It’s not as good as the first one.
While the first book’s plot holes were only about the size of the solar system, the second one scales up to at least the Large Magellanic Cloud, if not the entire Milky Way.
Naturally, I’m going to spoil everything.
Your Science Is Bad, And You Should Feel Bad
Zahrah the Windseeker really exists in a strange land in between science fiction, fantasy, and myth, so I’m not completely confident in my assignment of genre.
Nonetheless, the book is a light, pleasant read in a fascinating world. If you’re looking for a bit of a break from gritty dystopias (like I was), this novel is a good choice. I actually will be avoiding most of the spoilers, so… read away.
How Does That Computer Work, Anyway?
We’ve talked about Shadowrun Returns before, and I played (but did not comment upon) Shadowrun: Dragonfall.
Since Shadowrun: Hong Kong is now out, and delightful, I think it’s time to add another chapter. (I note that Michael and I backed this game on Kickstarter. It was worth it.)
There will be a few spoilers, but I’m not giving away the main plotline.
