Patrimony

Foster, Alan Dean

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!
