Liked it, but the huge plot makes me wonder who the good and the bad guys are and I’m hating this delineation. I have also some issues with the characters, and it’s not something that I can easily resolve. Reading Book 2 of the series will be hard but irresistible.
Komarr introduces a healthily enjoyable female character to the saga, and Ekaterin satisfies as well as arouses curiosity. I like this book.
Loved this article. I’ve been researching User-interfaces a little recently (this book helped me along), and it is certainly a wonderful subject to explore. In recent years, I’ve tilted more and more to web designing as my forte, and one of the major aspects of a web site, often overlooked is site navigation. A tasked-based approach seems to be the best way to go about it.
I’m going to do an overhaul to this site based on some ideas. It’s going to make navigation super-easy, links intuitive, markup self-explaining and style valid and compliant. And of course, accessible.
Big plans, big mouth, little (enough) time.
George R.R. Martin is a good author.
He uses split-narrative story-telling, one person in a chapter, another in the next. I’m going to explore this way of writing, I think it’ll suit my narrative.
