Worldwired - Elizabeth Bear

This book took me a long time to read because I checked it out, didn't finish in time, and then came back months later.  I think this was a detriment to the book or actually my feelings about the book.  I really wasn't enjoying it when I came back to finish it.  I hate the love triangle even though everyone gets along.  And Richard was getting a lot irritating.  Not my favorite of the series.

Cold Welcome - Elizabeth Moon

Another book that ended with a cliffhanger, which I'm not enjoying at this time. This is the second book I've read recently that does so. The story does drag a bit while they are in the cave/station, but otherwise I enjoyed it. My one complaint is SPOILER!! [it took them forever to reach the outside when they went through the tunnels and it seemed it took the baddies only a day even with self-locking/closing doors and the last door being extremely thick. How can the baddies be able to easily explode through doors that thick in mere minutes? For as long as the journey took Ky and the survivors (way too long in my opinion), the ease with which the villains went through them like tissue paper was unrealistic.

The Man Who Folded Himself - David Gerrold

Here are the two comments I made while reading the book:

I am getting real sick of this book - all these what ifs and how many people there are. I'm close to done with it so I'll more than likely finish it but I am definitely giving it a bad rating.
There's an awful lot of male giggling in this book. I'm just saying . . . 

So, when I first started reading the book I thought it was really good. And then there were so many what-ifs that it was ridiculous. That's when I was getting sick of the book. Then it started getting good again and I really enjoyed the ending. 

I'm giving a 3-1/2 star rating because of that later redemption. 

As an aside, I saw the book was published in the 1970s but there's reference to CDs and I thought did they have some giant version of a CD back then? Then they mentioned the twin towers and I went back again to see that it really was published in the 1970s. I don't know if the author amended the book without really a reference to the amendment to make the reader think he went back in time to add later events but whatever, it worked. :)

Code of Conduct - Kristine Smith

I was a lot confused reading this book. I had the short-story prequel and really liked it. This is 15-ish years later. I'm not exactly sure what/who the female protagonist is - ex-soldier, document reviewer, alien, cyborg. The main bad guy (there are many) for this story wasn't really a surprise. Even though I'm confused, I still enjoyed the book. So I'm reading the rest of the series.
