The Atrocity Archives (Laundry Files, #1) by Charles Stross
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.
Reamde by Neal Stephenson
Intelligent and humorous if highly contrived thriller set loosely around an MMORPG. Loved it.
Embassytown by China Miéville
Highly original tale of colonists cohabiting with some very unusual aliens with a very unusual language. It reads like J.G. Ballard and Nicholson Baker decided to collaborate on some SciFi.
The Affair (Jack Reacher, #16) by Lee Child
Not bad, returns to when Reacher was in uniform and tells the story of how he left the Army (the answer may surprise you). As with the last few in the series it all comes a little too easily and you wish there was at least one worthy opponent. I'm hooked though so as long as Child keeps writing them I'll keep reading.
Professional Android 2 Application Development by Reto Meier
Solid foundation and covers the platform you need to target to reach the majority of Android devices.
