Mendoza in Hollywood by Kage Barker
Mendoza in Hollywood: A Company Novel (The Company) - Kage Baker

Series: The Company #3

 

This installment of the Company time travel series finally reveals who Mendoza is telling her story to. I’d forgotten about this aspect of the first book because the glimpses of it are so quick, but I’m pretty sure they were there. This mostly takes place in Los Angeles, California, in 1862 where Mendoza is tasked with saving botanical specimens from their upcoming extinction due to the upcoming droughts and subsequent over-grazing. Anyway, there were some interesting Civil War aspects to the plot with the Company operatives uncovering a British conspiracy to gain control of California.

 

There was one really long chapter that covered one of the operatives’ movie nights in excruciating detail that I feel could have been mostly cut, but I’m left with more of a desire to continue the series now that I had at the start of the book.

 

I read this for booklikes-opoly square Cars Land 16 “Read a book set in…California”. Various sources put the paperback page count at 352 so I’m adding another $9 to my bank balance since this the second time I’ve landed on this square since the shake-up.

 

New Bank Balance: $229

Mendoza in Hollywood: A Company Novel (The Company) - Kage Baker

The setting for this book is (mostly) Civil War era California:

"As far as I can tell, the Yankee’s idea of freedom is his right to carry a pistol with which he may shoot strangers in the street."

On a previous page, the same character had remarked:

"Surely there’s been enough blood shed in this poor country. Wouldn’t you like to live in a city where you could walk down the streets without fear of being shot? I can assure you, in her native land your mother had no need to wear a pistol. Order and safety and the rule of law, that’s the blessing of a modern empire."

By the way, this book was first published back in 2000.

The glimmer drive was brought about by Dov Moran in 1998 when his tablet declined to boot before an introduction to a gathering of speculators in New York. "With everyone's eyes on me, I grinned, advertisement libbed and wildly kept on squeezing the beginning catch," Moran reviews in an article in EE Times. The tablet in the long run booted and Moran could play his 6 megabytes (MB) introduction, however out of the close disaster was conceived the possibility of a versatile stockpiling gadget that would be simpler to utilize and that would connect straight to the USB port.
