Re: What Are You Reading Right Now?

Interesting, the Anna Politkovskaya one must be quite depressing.

I'm not a fan of Iain Banks' other books, but maybe it'll work in reverse and I'll like his sci-fi?

I haven't read any sci-fi much, and would like to get into it - any recommendations from GC readers? I don't think I'd be much into the 'science' aspect, so no AC Clarke or Asimov, but I've enjoyed space operas like Peter Hamilton's Commonwealth Saga and found (sshh!) L. Ron Hubbard's Battlefield Earth to be highly enjoyable nonsense. Any suggestions?

Currently reading Best Served Cold by Joe Abercrombie. It's ok, quite poor really after his First Law trilogy.
