Books of February 2011

Orion Shall Rise
Poul Anderson
ISBN 0671464922
480 pages

Post apocalyptic.  I think intelligent life gets one kick at the can.  If you mess it up towards the end, your planet and life form are done.  Any rebirth of civilization will be hampered by lack of the same easily available resources.

No Dark Place
Joan Wolf
ISBN 0-06-019238-0
278 pages

"A medieval mystery".  I like medieval, I like mystery.  This book was weak.  Predictable, plain, no depth.

The Gods Themselves
Isaac Asimov
ISBN 0-553-28810-5
293 pages

Asimov is the best.
