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.

Quicksilver (The Baroque Cycle, Vol. 1)

Quicksilver - Neal Stephenson I'll say this...

It was a very creative story, and well written by a master. But I couldn't get into it. I simply drowned in it, and gave up about 1/2 way through.

I am disappointed in this conclusion, so much so that I had not fully resigned myself to failure for over a year of not reading it anymore. But it is done.

Perhaps I try again in a few years. Maybe.
