Books of November 2010

SPQR II The Catiline Conspiracy
John Maddox Roberts
ISBN 0-380-75995-0
216 pages

Enjoyed it less than the last one.  Interesting, but I don't think I'll seek out the rest of the series.

The Brass Verdict
Michael Connelly
ISBN 978-1-409-10203-8
601 pages

Bosch is a minor character in this.  Still enjoyable.

Steel Beach
John Varley
ISBN 0-441-78565-4
566 pages

Very much enjoyed this.  Very Heinleinesque.

Forever Odd
Dean Koontz
ISBN 0-553-80416-2
300 pages

Read the (an?) earlier novel about Odd, thought it was interesting, and made a mental note to pick up others.  Found it at the thrift store so scooped it.  Only OK.

The Descent
Jeff Long
ISBN 0-609-60293-4
450 pages

I like hollow world type stories.  Not many modern ones.  Some interesting ideas, a little far fetched, but surprisingly coherent.

The Legacy
Stephen Fry
ISBN 0-451-19015-7
373 pages

JFK Conspiracy book about the existence of a film shot across the street from Zapruder's.  Typical action thriller.

The Protector
David Morrell
ISBN 0-446-61403-3
482 pages

Recognized the author from First Blood (Rambo) and thought I'd give it a shot.  Another typical action thriller.
