Recently Read

Slow Train to Arcturus by Eric Flint and Dave Freer

I picked this book up when it was originally published in 2008 and it didn't grab me at all. I read one chapter then got distracted by something else. I did intend to give it another try but then something else and something else. Nine years later I picked it up again. Good book. It reads more like Freer than Flint and reminds me of Eric Frank Russell's The Great Explosion, which I also need to read again. . Aliens investigating a colony ship approaching their star meet up with various human societies that have evolved during the four hundred year voyage. It doesn't go so well. Like I said, good book. I 'm sorry it took me so long to read it.
