NEW READER'S CHOICE LIST

Woohooo!
(As if I didn't have enough to read without it....)

One book I had already read (check!) and two that were already on my list! AWESOME!
There are 24 this time around and I read one last night/this morning.

Singularity's Ring by Paul Melko
4 stars
R-2.75
some language (kind of randomly if you ask me, but whatever)

After 90% of the human race leaves in the "rapture", it's the pods that survive. Groups of people bonded to each other. They share thoughts, emotions, and act as one. (Most of the time.)
This book was fascinating (if not absolutely fabulously written... the writing was good, but there were a few things that the editors seem to have missed...). The book shifts from one perspective to another as one pod, Apollo Popadopulos, has to figure out what's happening to them.
And save the world.
Now if you ask me, the implications of pod life on society are profound and crazy all at once. I mean, what does that do to things like privacy and relationships?
Thought-provoking.
