I just got the last 3 Lost Fleet books (and a James Rollins book) from Amazon. I did a little dance. Seriously.
I think I might send the first book to my daddy. I think he'll really enjoy it. I hope so anyway. He needs new reading material.
The James Rollins book is really banged up, but the three Lost Fleet are in perfect condition. Yay.
yeah i know how you feel lol i just went down to the local Bookstore and bought lost fleet book # 5 although i have it ordered through amazon . its strange how a local NBS can get it in and put it on the shelf on the release date but amazon can't ship it until the release date.
what does your dad like to read ? i have some older stuff not on my shelf Deathlands stuff by Axler ( 8 or 10 of those)
found the first four books of the starfist series , lots of books by Chandler ( i must have been trying to get a bunch of his lol cause i have about 8 )
i need to take time and list a few of these lol :) enjoy your reading its raining here perfect reading weather :)
I was surprised I got them so early- but that's why I love Amazon (er, sometimes).
My dad is into military-type books, and he used to read alternative history. He's not so much into Science-Fiction, while the rest of the family reads almost exclusively science-fiction/fantasy. I'm thinking The Lost Fleet combines both for him. He also likes books with strong women characters, and this definitely has a couple of them.
I'm more the one into older-type books. Asimov, Clarke, etc. I want to read Axler, so when you post one of those, let me know. :)
It's going to be raining here all weekend, so it's going to be me and my cat lounging on my couch reading. Except when the thunder hits, in which case I'll be sitting ON the couch, and she will be UNDER the couch. I have such a high strung cat.
Since I'm probably the age of your father, I'll venture an opinion. Check out the Horor Harrington series by David Weber - very strong female protagonist and other characters in a military science fiction setting.
