Scratch Monkey

by Charles Stross

This read was riddled with some of my favorite theories and terms. From Hawking radiation to Fullerene composite ribbons - its all there. The perspective switched from 1st to 3rd person in a way that didn't become obvious until Halfway through the book - a little confusing, but cool once you catch on. The things I didn't like about this book would reveal too much about the plot and the SUCKY ENDING to go into with any detail, but it kept me occupied for about a week (on and off). If you're a cybergeek like me, you might like this one. NOT a must read. It is hard to feel any emotion for the characters. I certainly didn't fall in love with the heroine. But kudos to Charles Stross for writing this to its end. I'd like to see more from this guy.

Author of the Day

Alexander McNabb
When Alexander McNabb stopped smoking, he had to find something constructive to do with his hands - so he started writing. His debut novel Olives - A Violent Romance, sparked a lot of controversy in the Middle East because of his use of common family names and because it contained themes such as drinking alcohol, sex before marriage etc. So he followed it with Beirut, in which there’s booze aplenty, sex, gambling, murder, violence and general mayhem. As our Author of the Day, McNabb chats about his love for the Middle East, why his books always deal with politics, democratic values and religion and reveals what music he listens to while writing.
