Current Reading Material: Pushing Ice

September 28, 2007

Pushing Ice Cover

Pushing Ice by Alastair Reynolds.

After reading The Name of The Rose I thought of continuing with Eco’s second work, Foucault’s Pendulum (dubbed by some as the thinking person’s Da Vinci Code). On the other hand, I also think I should read something different. And I’m thinking Science Fiction (space!). So I pick Alastair Reynolds’, whose book I’ve never read before, Pushing Ice (which is a standalone read and has an interesting premise). Maybe next month will be Foucault’s Pendulum, if I’m not thirsty for more sci-fi.

The other books that I consider but couldn’t find (at Kino PS at least) were Altered Carbon, Old Man’s War and Ubik. Interestingly, now they now have Orwell’s 1984 on paperback… tempting.

  1. Foucault’s Pendulum kabarnya susah banget :)
    anyway, lama banget deh aku gak ke Kino. takut belanja :(

  2. @mina:
    Dari yg gw baca sih kira-kira gak jauh beda dibanding Name of The Rose. Ada masa orientasinya (seratus halaman pertama), sebelom bacaannya jadi lebih ringan.
