Book Review: The Anguished Dawn

In honor of his being guest of honor at Capricon next weekend, today's book review is The Anguished Dawn by James P. Hogan.

Still, while I certainly cannot wholeheartedly recommend this book, I cannot wholeheartedly disrecommend it either.  I would love to be able to talk to other people about some of the ideas in it, so if you can make it past some really silly cosmology from a writer who definitely should know better, do read it.  6 out of 10.

The large number of book reviews and the small number of posts about my own life is actually a clue about how I've been doing lately.  Except for the few days of ConFusion, I've been in such a deep pit of despair from losing Lori that I haven't been able to do much besides read.  I know that if I just *do* more, I will feel better, but I have *no* motivation.  Even compared to my normal not-well-motivated self.

I am starting to feel some signs of recovery.  I will try to write more in my LJ, but right now, it's off to bed or I won't be able to drag myself out of bed tomorrow morning even for my tigers.
