All the Time in the World

My taste in reading material is wide and varied: SF/fantasy/"speculative fiction", mysteries (police procedurals, mostly), history, fanfic, straight fiction, smutty vampire books, biographies, poetry, cereal boxes, assembly instructions, the fine print, and your mind.

The Law of Nines

The Law of Nines - Terry Goodkind Picked this up cheap at a thrift store, thought it might be interesting - a thriller from a guy known for sword-and-sorcery. No such luck - Goodkind's apparently a one-trick pony, as this book is completely tied to the Sword of Truth series (and honestly, I suspect a good deal of it wouldn't make sense unless one has already read at least some of those books.) Some of the writing is so bad I think they must have forgotten to assign him an editor, or even someone to proof it. Don't bother - especially since, although this story is pretty well wrapped up by the end of the book, it's wide open for sequels. And if Goodkind's consistent, we're talking many, many sequels.
