This was a funny book, but too much 'fantasy' for me. It was also pretty much following the 'default' plot so it was a bit predictable. I also found it a bit not descriptive enough.

All in all not bad, certainly better then 2312 but technically not so good as Redshirts.

Now reading Captain Vorpatril’s Alliance and it's gripping.

Meh

The story did not capture me, I could frankly not care less about the characters. Finishing it was a chore. I was having the impression of reading a bad version of AADB but without the humor, joy and captivating story.

In Debian it would go below 'further discussion' :(.

Now reading Throne of the Crescent Moon by Saladin Ahmed, which even if it is more fantasy then SF for now caught me already and I really want to find out what happens next.

As for the last few years I'm going to try to read the Hugo nominees and vote again.

I started with Redshirts from John Scalzi. Now I like Scalzi, I got Old Man's War in a previous Hugo voter packet and bought a few other books in that series.

However Redshirts is not doing much for me. It feels a bit like professional fanfick, which it is in some way. It is very funny to read and to find the references but in some way it left me unsatisfied.

Next up: 2312 were I am still waiting for it to hook me after ~30% read, which is not a good sign :(.
