Only the good stuff

I read a lot and love to read. I find great pleasure in good science fiction, and enjoy thinking about the great stories I've read and agonizing over what will come next. The information I provide here is for me. I long been a voracious reader, but never a review writer. But I've been tempted to try to document my thoughts on the why, what and how of the books I enjoyed. But do feel free to peruse, and please do suggest a great read you think I'd like.

The Player of Games

The Player of Games - Iain M. Banks I loved this book. I surely didn't think I would like it, which is why I have been sitting on it for over a year. I read Consider Phlebas a while ago and like it enough to consider doing more...but when the main character ... I lost interest. I suppose I took his point of view about The Culture, and I wasn't interested enough for Player of Games to rise to the top of the read stack.

But somehow it did recently, and I am delighted for the discovery of my error.

I highly recommend it.
