A new short story collection. Mostly pretty good.

About halfway through Jasper Ffordes Shades of Grey. It's extremely enjoyable as a dystopian style of novel. The whole world as it should be is imagined and you have to pay attention as not much reverts back to our society.

I dug out my Under The Dome I bought many months ago so that I can read it before the miniseries comes on.

I just finished the Hunger Games series, and was in the mood for more dystopian fiction but the market has been flooded with a crapload of YA dystopian fiction after the Hunger Games movie's success. It's nice to see another adult dystopian novel, aside from the classics which I've already read. Thanks for the heads up on this one, Jammer. I'm going to check it out!

Yeah I don't think this one falls into the realm of YA, as with all UK writers half the times I'm not sure if there's hidden UK jokes in there I'm totally missing as well.

China Mieville's Embassytown.
About halfway done. Let's see how it develops...

Just started this. Not sure yet. It may be a little TOO sci-fi/fantasy for me.

Have you read all the Burke series?

Stick with it...turns into a pretty cool Rock'n'Roll/satan/angels and standard theological detective stuff after a bit. The rest of the books are decent too.
