Book Review – Avengers: Infinity Prose Novel by James A. Moore

This is the prose novelization adaption of the Infinity storyline that ran in Avengers about a decade ago. I enjoyed that story so I gave this a shot in audiobook form. It’s one of the more faithful adaptations of a comic story that I’ve experienced. It’s comprehensive and preserves almost all of the original story. And it’s a good story for me.

Book Review – Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

Andy Weir is back and once again he’s putting the science in science fiction. Project Hail Mary is Weir’s third novel, after the literary and cinematic sensation The Martian and his second book, Artemis. I enjoyed The Martian about as much as anybody. Weir has a knack for writing hard science in a way that’s intriguing. I found Artemis to be a bit of a letdown. The science was there but the story wasn’t. That’s not a problem in Project Hail Mary. It’s not only a return to form, but I found it to be his best work to date by a comfortable margin.

Manga Review – Sazan & Comet Girl by Yuriko Akase

WOW!

I feel like it’s not often that I’m genuinely shocked by a book the way I was by Sazan & Comet Girl. I read a lot of manga and comic books. Just an absolute ton of both. But I’d never heard of this before. Nor had I heard of the creator Yuriko Akase. I saw this on the “New Arrivals” shelf at the library and picked it up because it looked cool and went in with no other previous knowledge.
