    I couldn’t help it — just started another Scalzi (THE ANDROID’S DREAM) right after it.
    Androids Dream is a fun read and more very creative story telling. I would put below Fuzzy Nation but not far below. One week until I get some new Scalzi to read!

    Good to hear!

    Btw, Scalzi is the star of today’s Showcase Book tweet:

    I do not think I had ever seen that cover before. It is perfect! Side note. Two days ago a good friend of mine who I have sucked into Scalzi addiction texted me a photo of the trade Agent to the Stars with the note "This is a good one!".

    Man oh man, I did not click with ANDROID’S DREAM at *all.*

    I’m halfway through and am throwing in the towel on this one. I have no interest in what happens in the latter half, and couldn’t really tell you what the first half was about…it was one of those reading experiences where you just see the words on the page but don’t truly absorb them in any meaningful way. Absolutely surprising, given that until now I’ve loved everything I’ve read by him...this is my first bad Scalzi experience, but it’s a stunningly disappointing one.

    Sorry to hear that. Not a classic for me but I enjoyed it. My two disappointments have been God's Engines and Miniatures. Miniatures in particular was not good.

    Have not picked up those two yet...maybe I’ll not be in a rush to do so.

    Think next I’ll try the LOCK IN / HEAD ON duo...good idea? Recommended?

    I would put those two somewhere between Androids Dream and Get Fuzzy. I did enjoy them and they are creative stories. I think I cares about the characters more in the Lock In series than those in Androids Dream.
