A Room With A View

Forster, E. M.
I read the Project Gutenberg e-book edition. Which did not include the Appendix that the author wrote many years later. I didn't get very excited by this Edwardian romance. Some parts were good, some clever, some even funny. But mostly not.

Quote:

Chapter III: Music, Violets, and the Letter “S” “She oughtn’t really to go at all,” said Mr. Beebe, as they watched her from the window, “and she knows it. I put it down to too much Beethoven.”

Lost and found

Foster, Alan Dean
First book of the Marc and George trilogy, I guess. Marc (and George) is kidnapped by aliens to be sold as slaves or something. They escape in volume one. George is a dog, by the way, who can talk, thanks to said aliens. LATER: It's called the Taken trilogy.

Quote:

Bunyanesque lengths of amputated oak crackled for attention within the Stygian depths of a corner fireplace fashioned of hand-laid river rock.

Patrimony

Foster, Alan Dean
A Pip & Flinx Adventure. Flinx (and Pip, of course) go to Gestalt to find Flinx's dad. It's cold there. Pink snow.

Words I Had To Look Up:


Motile (pg. 42) -- Capable of movement.
Sybfiles (pg. 35) -- One hit on Google, probably a typo. An invented term?

The Light-Years Beneath My Feet

Foster, Alan Dean
Second book in the Taken Trilogy, Marcus becomes a chef, gets a crush on an alien chick, is named military boss, is captured, un-captured, and zooms away towards the third book. I SWEAR I read this book before, but it is not in the data base. Apparently didn't make enough impression on me to start sounding familiar until page 85.

Zug Island : A Detroit Riot Novel

Fournier, Gregory A.
Jake is suspended from college for drinking, and decides to get a job at the "steel mill" his father and grandfather worked at. He meets men of a much different background than he, and learns a bit about how the world really is before he goes back to college. I enjoyed reading this novel, but I kept projecting myself into the Jake character, except Jake is rather smarter than I am!
