Field of Science

What I Read (2009)

In reverse order
(Grade A-F, no E's) Title-Author Additional thoughts

B- The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett My least favorite Pratchett to date, but still quite good. Making fun of academicians and evolution all in one fell swoop.

F Lost City of the Jedi by Paul Davids and Hollace Davids Weak, but the boy loves Star Wars

D Star Wars: the Phantom Menace by Henry Gilroy, Rodolfo Damaggio, Al Williamson

B- Under the Dome by Stephen King Pretty compelling story, end was a bit weak, but these kinds of stories are basically impossible to end well IMHO.

F Young Jedi Knights by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta Ugh, Part II

C+ 1421 The Year China Discovered America by Gavin Menzies Thought provoking book, although I think Menzies overstates the case a bit.

D The Mark on the Door by Franklin W. Dixon

B+ Mort by Terry Pratchett :)

C Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rawling A reread for the boy

C+ Law of Nines by Terry Goodkind Love me some Goodkind, took quite awhile before I the tie in with the Sword of Truth series
