Valor by John Gwynne. Probably shouldn't have waited almost two months to continue the series, but I'm sure a lot of the stuff from the first book will come back to me

I haven't read that one, yet, although I have it ready to go once I'm done with some other stuff, but P. Djeli Clark is great. The book is set in the world that started with A Dead Djinn in Cairo and a few other stories before he expanded it to a full novel. Mrs. Match totally dug it.I just saw this in a bookstore, not having heard of the author at all before. How is it?
I'm sad to report that I gave it about 90 pages, but it didn't grab me at all. I liked The Haunting of Tram Car 015, and I loved Ring Shout (which I absolutely recommend), so I don't know why. It's not like it was bad, even! Just didn't click with me for whatever reason.I just saw this in a bookstore, not having heard of the author at all before. How is it?
I have read so many of Asimovs short stories, that I don't remember a lot of them (this sounds bad, it isn't, there are just sooo many, and so many of them good). The Last Question is one of my favourites of his. It's amazing, beautiful, and feels grandious and clever. Loved that one.My nickname is there for a reason I'm fairly sure I've read all of Asimov's short stories published in Spanish, and all the major novels and major compilations in English. I'm only including the solo ones, though, as I haven't read the extended NIghtfall novel he co-wrote. But I read both NIghtfall (short story) and The Last Question when I was young, and I think they shaped my tastes for literature a lot.
Some years ago, I read that Kafka would read his works to his friends, and was always confused, when they didn't love. He thought his books were funny. (Don't remember where I read this, maybe I just imagined it) I never saw this, until now. Having Gregor not caring at all about being a giant bug, while being way more frustrated and scared of his regular live is such an absurd situation, I couldn't help but laugh, when the guy from his firm appears, to find out why Gregor is late. Dunno, I find it hilarious, maybe because it feels so true.
