Dammit - arrived too late to give Snow Crash that crucial vote. Aargh!
However, on the brighter side (and I may step on toes here but it's only my opinion) good to see Red Mars bringing up the rear. I thought it was one of the dullest books I've ever read and put me off Kim Stanley Robinson for life. I really disliked that book and there are two sequels too.
I'd safely have it in the Ten Worst Books I've Ever Read list.
you know we've got a thread for that...

You really need to read the Mars "Trilogy". It's certainly not "action-based", but I think that the character development in it is excellent, and it's very well worth reading. It's certainly a "thinking person's" book.

I am looking forward to reading Time Traders. But, I think I will be adding all of these to my to read list. Except Neromancer, already read that.

So what's the deal here? We all read the book by the end of January and then a thread is created to talk about it in February?
