Tôi đọc nó bởi vì tôi rất thích The Dress Lodger, nó rất thú vị.
Do not be fooled by my rating. This has the making of an excellent story. It was only 15 pages, therefore I reserve the right to adjust the ratings as I read #2, which is pre-ordered.
It's not my favorite, but I have already read it 4 times and it is tolerable. It sort of reminds me of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, etc. It rambles, and that is a fun thing for little kids, as well as adults who think in circles.
How can you go wrong with a book that starts with "It was a dark and stormy night..."? This is the first book of The Galactic Milieu Trilogy. In addition there is a set of prequels and post-quels to the trilogy. I'm a sucker for good plot and this series definitely has it. In addition, it also has great humor, lots of big words (a dictionary by my side at all times), and impeccable research (who knew that you could still buy ice axes are REI in the year 2113?). And so the first paragraph continues with "...as so many nights were on Denali, where topography and climate conspired to produce some of the Galaxy's worst weather. Worst from a human point of view, of course, unless that human was addicted to Nordic skiing..."
