Havering

Got over a bad head cold this week, it sort of started Saturday or Sunday with hints of a sore throat, and revealed itself Monday night when I was woken a few times to clear my nose so I could breath. I got better since then, but me with being an old git, it takes a lot longer than it used to.

I tried reading one of the books I bought, a steam punk adventure, but although the writing was decent enough the characters were real turn offs for me; that and the constant putting the lead characters in mortal danger every twenty or so pages only for them to be then inexplicably safe and continuing their adventure became rapidly boring. I gave up about chapter eight, gave it another chance and then gave up again at chapter twelve.

I’ve got two other fiction books (non SF) to read so maybe I’ll give one of them a shot.
