Fortune's Pawn
Fortune's Pawn - Rachel Bach

Devi is a mercenary whose life goal is to be a Devastator (an elite group that serves the king of Paradox). She signs up for a year of security work on The Glorious Foul because she'll get credit for 5 years and serve 1. However, all is now what it seems.
I liked the writing and I thought the world interesting. However, I would have liked more backstory on the different species and planets (why don't Paradoxians like the Terrans and vice versa for example). I liked Devi, but had trouble connecting with her. I found this was very easy to pick up and put back down. I wasn't really that invested in her story. Then that fucked up ending. I disliked that

mainly because Rupert took any choice any. 'Cause he knows best.

(spoiler show)


For Romance-opoly Outer Space Sun track.

Reading progress update: I've read 191 out of 191 pages.
The Begum's Fortune - Jules Verne

okay. I just plowed all the way through this, after reading what I had left of The New York Detective.

 

gotta love Verne the visionary - even in lesser works - but this SF/Spy thing decides to go from anti-climax to anti-climax. the first half is more interesting. the second half should have been more fun than it was. I did like Max’s escape from Stahlstadt, though; entertaining spy-jinks.

 

this book has a good chance of offending Germans...and to break up any monotony, the Chinese.

Reading progress update: I've read 288 out of 288 pages.
The Great Fortune - Olivia Manning

“You think there’ll be a revolution?”

“Something of the sort. But, worse than that, the country itself will fall apart. Rumania cannot preserve her great fortune. She has been too foolish and too weak. As for our chances …” He laughed again. “They depend on knowing when to get away.”

Guy took Harriet’s arm. “We’ll get away all right.”

She said: “We’ll get away because we must. The great fortune is life. We must preserve it.”

They turned from the map of France with the swastika at its centre and walked home through the empty streets.

Ok, I'm hooked, and I really cannot remember the last time I was hooked by a story that had no discernible plot whatsoever.

The Great Fortune - Olivia Manning

Harriet said: “Let’s go and watch.”

She tried to move, but Clarence caught her elbow, determined to retain her attention. He kept repeating: “You could save me.”

She laughed impatiently: “Save yourself, Clarence. You said that Guy is a fool. There may be ways in which that sort of fool is superior to you. You show your wisdom by believing in nothing. The truth is, you have nothing to offer but a wilderness.” 

Harriet Pringle is such a fab character.
