Spider Legs - Clifford A. Pickover,Piers Anthony

 

A very unsatisfactory ending.

The last 'fight' scene with spider was incredibly tedious, if a bit gross.

evaginate is a new word for me and the images it invokes make me laugh.

Spider Legs - Clifford A. Pickover,Piers Anthony

 

 Still skimming, though the info dumps have mostly taken a pause for some action.

 

We have two bouts of extreme hypothermia that were recovered from unbelievably fast, and a kid had his intestines sucked out through his abdomen.  'Bout damn time.

 

We also have another budding romance.

I've been skimming.

 

More science and tourism dumps, the most stilted and unbelievable romance scene ever (I have no idea if they actually had sex), and the cherry on top:

 

Captain Calamari (seriously?), captain of the ferry who waxes poetic about the mechanics and I think the history of this particular ferry.

 

On the upside, the giant sea spider is following them (with it's creator being carried in it's shell WTF?) so hopefully someone is about to get ripped apart and/or eaten alive.

I think this is going to be a DNF.

 

I don't care anymore what the giant sea spider does unless it eats the authors next.

 

I'm sure New Foundland is an amazing place, I would actually like to visit.

but I don't want a lecture on arctic marine biology and a tour guide.

Roll number something - 33: Tomorrowland
Way Station (A Collier Nucleus Science Fiction Classics) - Clifford D. Simak

 

 Thank you Debbie's Spurts for sending me to my next square.

 

This was an interesting read about a guy on earth who was contacted by an alien and asked to run a stopover on earth for aliens wanting to travel through Earth's section of the galaxy.
