Reading progress update: I've read 18%.
Delirium - Lauren Oliver

Does anyone else have a harder time reading ebooks that actual hardcopies? There's something about seeing my progress through the pages that helps keep me going, and you just don't get that with a Kindle. I'm feeling a slump coming on so I may grab a Book of the Month I have been wanting to read for a while. Or something off my massive TBR cart. Just something to keep me going.

Okay, this is actually not all that bad. I'm suspending credit in creativity, though, because this is a lot like Uglies or Matched. Or any other number of YA novels where society deems love/creativity/uniqueness a problem to corrected.

The Delirium Brief, Charles Stross
The Delirium Brief - Charles Stross

Whoah! I wasn't expecting that!

 

Initially I was a little disappointed because the much heralded return of BoB Howard as narrator was not as much as fun as anticipated: his distinctive voice seems to have largely disappeared. To some extent this is understandable since he's ten years older than when he first appeared, has seen an awful lot of horror, terror, death and destruction and has also ceased to be entirely human - but his nutso forms of expression were a great part of his appeal.

 

Later revelations and plot developments were so unexpected, shocking and game changing in terms of the series as a whole that, in fact, this book re-invigorates a series that was flagging and makes me more excited for the next volume than I've been for quite some time. Props to Stross for taking the series alarmingly far outside its comfort zone.

Everything's gone hyper-dimensionally pear-shaped.

Well, I suppose it's a spy agency so they had to go rogue eventually...
