    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    Can I give this audio book 7 stars out of 5, or 8, 9 or 10? Only then would my reaction be accurately represented. The reader is awesome. If you listened to the first book, you'll get used to him quickly enough. It's funny but you can hear him trying to get used to himself. His accent of Tyrion's voice morphs throughout A Game of Thrones, developing into a sort of Scottish/Irish/Dwarfish? impishness that is perfection. After that you have to love this reader, and it is important, although the book's good enough to listen to even if it were read by someone as crappy as John Lee, poor chap, who picks up where Roy Dotrice leaves off in A Feast for Crows.
    By the way, if you have succumbed to buying this book because of the inexorable disease-like symptomps of sudden onset A-Song-of-Ice-and-Fire addiction (or SOASoIaFA), fear not, it's pretty much the best plague ever.
    George R. R. Martin has created something so thoroughly cramped with action and suspence that, given its volume, it is almost paradoxical. His world is palpable and vast. Characters of every kind will go to war, good against bad, ugly, and evil, all at once. And yet somehow, the next book gets even better. Read it. Or listen to it. Just go.

    A Fire Upon the Deep is the big, breakout book that fulfills the promise of Vinge's career to date: a gripping tale of galactic war told on a cosmic scale. Thousands of years hence, many races inhabit a universe where a mind's potential is determined by its location in space, from superintelligent entities in the Transcend, to the limited minds of the Unthinking Depths, where only simple creatures and technology can function.

    Mind-bending.

    One of the greatest sci-fi novels ever written, fourth on reddit's sci-fi book survey.

    While in Paris on business, Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon receives an urgent late-night phone call. The elderly curator of the Louvre has been murdered inside the museum, a baffling cipher found near the body. As Langdon and gifted French cryptologist, Sophie Neveu, sort through the bizarre riddle, they are stunned to discover a trail of clues hidden in the works of Da Vinci, clues visible for all to see and yet ingeniously disguised by the painter.

    Ah, well, what can I say, it's average. I loved the part where the author reveals that in the last supper, Jesus is sitting next to a woman. And that's it. That's the whole thing, right there. The book is such a tedious way to get around to it. The main characters are so confused. And the plot is so silly, it's just too silly to be any sillier. No, that's not true, but my point is... the author is way better at history and wild-crazy-idea-having than he is at writing.

    Here's the delightful new novel from Clare Naylor, whose sleeper hit Dog Handling was one of Cosmopolitan's Best Beach Reads for 2002. Fresh and fun, The Goddess Rules is an outrageous, wry, and razor-sharp portrait of a girl who thinks her life is just fine, until she meets a woman who swears by the belief that life is meant to be fabulous.

    It's a lighthearted and very enjoyable book. I'd almost call it lovely. Everything about it reminds you of lazy summer afternoons in England, which could be because that's the setting, but also because, well, it's very well set, but you know what I mean. And it's predictable, that is true, but only because you always know how things ought to be, and here they are well sorted out. My point is, I find it notable indeed when an author is able to make something meaningful but cheerful at the same time. And that's that.
