Clean slate
Jane Jensen: Gabriel Knight, Adventure Games, Hidden Objects (Influential Video Game Designers) - Jennifer deWinter,Carly A. Kocurek,Anastasia Salter
The snail-watcher, and other stories - Patricia Highsmith
The Naked Sun - Isaac Asimov

I turned in these and a bunch of other library books today, unfinished. I still have The Moai Island Puzzle and Ichi-F checked out. Let's see if I can manage to finish and review them in time. I still haven't made a decision about The Ginza Ghost.

 

It looks like I might not get that second Bingo before the end of Halloween Bingo, although I still plan to finish the book I was reading for my Vampires square, Alliance in Blood. At the moment it's highly unlikely to get more than 2 stars from me, and I can practically feel the review writing itself. I'm still shaking my head at the author's decision to have one of the characters tell another character everything that just happened. The entire convo was included on-page, even though readers had just seen it all themselves and didn't need it repeated back to them. No wonder this book is just the first part of what was originally one enormous book.

Youth - Isaac Asimov Youth - Isaac Asimov

 

Loved it! Such a great short story.

I loved the changing perspectives of the narration. The story progresses from multiple points of view, leading to a great twist.

A perfectly entertaining story for Asimov fans.

The Martian Way and other stories
The Martian Way and Other Stories - Isaac Asimov

This is one of my dad's old books. I really liked the twist at the end of one of the stories, Youth. It isn't finished yet. I hope I'll like all of it.

Reading progress update: I've read 20 out of 187 pages.
The Naked Sun - Isaac Asimov

"Baley said with some agitation, 'That's all right, boy. Leave the ports closed.'

 

He used the 'boy' address that Earthmen always used for robots, but the robot showed no adverse response. It couldn't, of course. Its responses were limited and controlled by the Laws of Robotics."

Oh, that racism. I mean, anti-robot sentiment.
