Maybe that's what it was and I just wasn't seeing it as the writing, but you have a good point. It was almost like it was piecemeal in the way that the story flowed... and it seemed to me that there were contradictory statements a LOT in there. So yeah, I guess the writing was most of the issue I had with it...

Haven't read anything new since finishing A Dance with Dragons. Since getting my Kindle Fire I've actually gone back and reread old favorites of mine. Mostly Steven King stuff (It, The Stand, etc). I'll be checking out that book epi posted though...that one sounds pretty good.

if you don't know about it...you should definitely check it out..it's great..you can make lists of what you've read, want to read and are currently reading. You can follow authors, follow friends and groups.

I finished reading the first three A Song of Ice and Fire books and needed a break before I could start the last 2.

I just finished American Gods and it was really good

I forgotted about this thread.

Ok, lemme remember what I have read lately...

The Snake Eaters was very good, by Owen West.

The other 3 I read recently are not worth the bandwidth.

I read it in two days actually :)

it was good..I enjoyed it...It's a YA adult book..so it's a very quick read. If you liked Hunger Games you'll more than likely like it

I'm about to start reading Freakonomics. GF just finished it up on the kindle and said I'll like it.

It's extremely hard for me to read anything but non fiction. The last book I read was Quiet Strength by Tony Dungy.

Publisher's Summary

Technology controls almost everything in our modern-day world, from remote entry on our cars to access to our homes, from the flight controls of our airplanes to the movements of the entire world economy. Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

Matthew Sobol was a legendary computer game designer - the architect behind half-a-dozen popular online games. His premature death depressed both gamers and his company's stock price. But Sobol's fans aren't the only ones to note his passing. When his obituary is posted online, a previously dormant daemon activates, initiating a chain of events intended to unravel the fabric of our hyper-efficient, interconnected world. With Sobol's secrets buried along with him, and as new layers of his daemon are unleashed at every turn, it's up to an unlikely alliance to decipher his intricate plans and wrest the world from the grasp of a nameless, faceless enemy - or learn to live in a society in which we are no longer in control. . . .
