Reviews and Links for October 2012

Updated on Friday, February 24, 2017

Skios by Michael Frayn


Perfectly well oiled comedy of errors.


The Hydrogen Sonata (Culture, #10) by Iain M. Banks


Solid but somewhat routine Culture installment.


A Wanted Man (Jack Reacher, #17) by Lee Child


Solid Reacher installment.


Some Remarks: Essays and Other Writing by Neal Stephenson


Excellent collection of articles and a couple of short stories. Worth reading just for the Wired article on the technology and politics of submarine cables.
