So I finished Shadow Puppets. It picked up slightly towards the end, but it doesn't change the fact that *Spoilers in white*: The antagonist could have been offed in the predecessor and the book would still have decent conflict, as a united Muslim nation is preparing to go to war with China. It's really boring, which is a shame since Card was able to make slower books like Speaker for the Dead really involving and gripping. I'm going with a high C-.

Bumped. So I read Shadow of the Giant by Orson Scott Card. I'm glad I stuck with the franchise, because this capper is a massive improvement over Shadow Puppets despite having flaws of its own. This one actually has stakes. I'm going with a B.

I'm reading 2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke now. Pretty good so far, though I think I prefer the movie due to the latter's ambiguous nature and open symbolism.

Are you planning on reading the follow up? Or seeing the movie?

Welp, sorry John, but I guess I gotta do my upper-classman duty and beat you up.

The movie is fantastic, probably in my top 25 of all time. Also, I'm still reading A Clash of Kings. It's really long.

Well, I finally finished A Clash of Kings. Great book. It's probably up there among my favorites of all time.

Reading Sonic Fan fiction.  It's quite the story.
