Catalyst

McCaffrey, Anne
Co-authored by Elizabeth Ann Scarborough. This book is about cats in space. It is OK, funny at times, perhaps even "slyly" funny. I will read the next book. But after that, I am not making any promises.

The Road

McCarthy, Cormac
A man and his son travel the road to the sea in this tale of survival years after some unnamed disaster kills pretty much everything but a few semi-human survivors. The author seems to have a "thing" about using apostrophes consistently. Some lovely writing, but I didn't really care for the book.
