Sun of Suns

August 11, 2008

I finished Sun of Suns, the second of my free Kindle books from Tor, on my flight out to Boston. Overall it was also rather good, although in a different way. While Old Man’s War was an enjoyable story, Sun of Suns is notable more for the world that Karl Schroeder creates than for the plot itself (which, while swashbuckling sailors with wooden boats in zero G in a giant enclosed sphere are fun, is a little flat). But hey, swashbuckling sailors!  Pirates!  Multiple freefloating towns inside an air-filled hollow sphere!  What’s not to like, in a ok-it’s-still-summer-and-I’m-happy-not-to-think-too-hard kind of a way?
