3.5 stars

1967: Ye Wenjie witnesses Red Guards beat her father to death during China's Cultural Revolution. …

Expected more.

3 star

I really expected more given all the enthusiasm I've heard. It's a bit of a mish-mash, some great sections, but too much going on, not that engaging characters... uh... it's pretty good, but was work to get through.

The  Sandman (1991, Titan)

Preludes and Nocturnes collects the first eight issues of The Sandman comic by Neil Gaiman …

Interesting start, but not completely sold yet.

I've feel like I've heard forever about about how great this is. The first volume was fine, I guess! The foreword suggests that the first few issues are really figuring out what to be, and that series really finds its voice later. I'll read more and see how I get on. The last issue was by the most interesting, which is a good sign. (Now I just need to figure out how to find them.)

Fun action packed story, lots happening, but also a very dark dystopia. The way tech is woven into the story is really interesting, well researched and full of accurate little details. The structure of the story is cool, with the two main focal characters in direct opposition. It creates empathy with the "villains" - who have a very weird plot.
