Been taking a break from the usual sci fi to get through the stuff I've been meaning to read forever. Finished vol. 1 of My Struggle last week (the Knausgard one, not the, uh, Hitler one), now on to Wolf Hall. Makes me wish I paid better attention in high school history. Oscillating between really admiring Thomas Cromwell and reminding myself that he wasn't necessarily anything like his character in the novel. Great read, anyways.
To balance it out: some dude at the gym saw me reading a few weeks ago, assumed all books are created equal and insisted that I read "Blowback" by Brad Thor. And by "insisted" I mean "literally put a copy in my hand." Given the title and the author's name, assume the worst and you've probably hit the mark. Needless to say... reading it after I'm done with Wolf Hall. And let's face it, I'll probably eat that shit up.
