I read science fiction! I'm just very picky. But I'm a total sucker for this stuff. I'm not sure how to describe it, but books that look at something from a "broad" angle rub my history- and newspaper-loving soul the right way. I mean, what's the best chapter in LOTR? Surely The Council of Elrond.
I agree with The Council of Elrond in LOTR as well, but that's not science fiction so let us not get too carried away about that here.
I notice you also have Stranger in a Strange Land in Currently reading, do you feel the same way about that one?
I've not read Robopoclypse, but I'll keep my eye out for a copy.
Also not happy to hear that ½ way through it is fading... :(
Most of the reviews I've read are positive for the whole book.
Two things sold me on it. One, the Big Idea column over at Scalzi's blog. Two, the cover design, which put me right in mind of the Bjork video that Chris Cunningham directed.
and Tom Bombadil is the best part of LOTR
Think Stephanie Meyer of robotics (without the virginal sex). I know that sounds cruel, but it's actually a pretty good description.
