Blindsight

by Peter Watts

Great read!! Lots of "new slang", but all covered in context; For instance Noosphere is simply the news, as we already refer to the blogosphere (what people blog about).. Someone complained that Games Theory was introduced to clutter the story, not so! it was named as the reason behind a discussion of why a decision was made. If you like the hard-science stories, grab a copy of Blindsight.

Captain Blood

by Rafael Sabatini

I can't imagine a better pirate novel. Sabatini makes Peter Blood such an enjoyable character, without overdoing his awesomeness. The guy has character, and he's a good quick thinker. I love the subtle snarky comments that Blood is so good at dishing out. The relationships are interesting, and setting is easy to envision, and the swashbuckling adventure elements are plentiful. I highly recommend this book for fans of seafaring adventure.
