The Fall of Winter



Fall of Winter, by Jack C. Haldeman II

This is what happens when I read multiple books at the same time! I finish them near each other!

This one is by Jack C. Haldeman and I found out about it ages ago and have had on my Amazon list for quite a while. It's also been out of print for a number of years; I finally bought a used copy and now I've finished reading it and here we are!

The interesting thing about this book (and the reason I was interested in it) is that it had a main character who's deaf. Not the main character, but one of them. The guy is a space pilot and all pilots are deaf. Some are Deaf, but mostly the pilots have their auditory nerves removed when they finish training. It's really interesting, 'cuz there's this whole elite group of people that are needed for the civilization, but that same group in our world tends to be marginalized.

There's also a great big conspiracy and terraforming and class issues and a little romance too.

Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul



Chicken Soup for the Dog Lover's Soul

I know, "Chicken Soup" books are kinda cheesy, but I love the pet related ones. I read the two earlier one's quite a while ago (Pet Lover's Soul and Cat & Dog Lover's Soul) and this one has been sitting in my bathroom for the last few months. Bathroom books are best when they're bunches of short story type things. That way I don't end up stuck in there when I get all involved in the book.

I just don't get sick of awesome pet stories!
