Reading progress update: I've read 184 out of 184 pages.
CatStronauts: Race to Mars - Drew Brockington

This one was better in the internal logic department than the first volume. And yay, I read the volumes in the right order - the Moon one definitely comes before this Mars one.

 

And Grim, you'll be happy to know that Cat-Stro-Bot is back and helps save everyone again. :-)

Fantasyland
A Princess of Mars - Edgar Rice Burroughs,John Seelye

 

I'm not sure why this one was marked fantasy, but, whatever works. :  )

Burroughs is always a fun read.

 

I can't decide if Capt. John Carter is just lucky or if he really is that good.

A little of both I think.

I'm behind in my challenge this year from all the illness. So, I'm sort of cheating and knocking out these Sailor Moon books. Each book has 3 "episodes". They are pretty decent for being junior novels. The second one had a few grammatical errors, but other than that, they seem true to the comics. Very 90s. But cool. They are making some references that make me cringe, like Furby and CK and Hilfiger. Wow. Blast from the past.

Disappointing as it did not read like a Terry Pratchett book
The Long Mars - Terry Pratchett;Stephen Baxter

Sad but true.

 

I so want to like this one.

 

And I didn't.

 

More than 200 pages in, and nothing much happen at all. The characters are bland and boring. 

 

I don't care much if some accident happened to them in the Gap and they all disappeared into the Gap.


That's how much I don't care about them.

 

As for the build up, there is no tension whatsoever to push the story alone. There is some unknown reason that there is tension between the boring daughter and even more boring father. Who care?

 

If this continue, this would be the first and hopefully last book I read with Terry's name on it that I don't like. 

 

The "Stepping" part of the story is interesting, but the lack of character developments, and plots make it boring.

 

The world is so uncaring. The father didn't give a damn about his daughter beyond her ability to work for him. The old humans fear of the new humans in such an extreme that is beyond reason. Imprisoning them because they are smarter? Seriously, we always have genius in society. No one said such genius could not be as selfish as they wanted to be. Who make the rule that all talent have to serve the society they are in? 

 

I finished it. Very disappointed.
