Book Review Time

Prelude to Dune: House Atreides
by Brian Herbert & Kevin J Anderson

Reminiscent of Dune, but lacking that quality, whatever it is, that made Dune special. Needs more sex.

Threshold
by Sara Douglas

Deeply flawed. Begins poorly, improves significantly, then completely falls apart somewhere around halfway. The final battle against the big bad is laughably easy. Needs more sex.

Interface
by Stephen Bury

300 pages too long. Needs more sex.

Dark Moon
by David Gemmell

Now this is more like it. Quite good. Intense. Needs more sex.

Neverness
by David Zindell

Magnificent, once you get over the fact that every second word is a made-up one. 20 - 50 pages too short. Needs more sex, and less incest.
