After enjoying Eversion so much, I decided to hop right into another Alistair Reynolds book.
I've seen his name on book store shelves ever since I graduated from the children's section, but never picked up one of his books before.
That was clearly a mistake. So far, my second is already off to a very good start.
Just saw this recommended by Jerry Holkins.
I was just getting out of high school when this was published and I completely missed it. But it sounds rad so onto the infinite backlog it goes.
Well, that was terrific.
I was looking for some light and easy SF reading and Space Team was recommended.
It fit the bill perfectly; I read it in just a few hours. I didn't even have time to add it to this website first.
It's not high art, but it's definitely diverting. And sometimes, we all need a diversion.
To some extent, I was reading this to evaluate if it would be a good book to hand to a new junior dev.
I'm not really sure. There are parts that I think are great and parts where I think that Mark gets off into some paths I don't love (notably TDD) a bit more than seems necessary.
I think I'd probably put this on a list of other recommended titles but not necessarily single it out.
As for myself, I'm not sad that I read it. It's a good refresher in a lot of ways.
Anyone who's looked at the GitHub for this site can see that I need a lot of help...this one comes highly recommended so I have high expectations!
