The Player of (not fun) Games

Some books are fun to read, interesting, engaging,with likeable characters. This isnt one of them, which is odd because I enjoyed Consider Phlebas
That earlier book was fun, exciting and very accesible. This book however is like reading a book in a foreign language when you only know a few words of said language . Didnt finish.

Good that you're blogging more regularly again. I fell out of the habit of blogging and never got back in the habit again.

I didn't finish this either. In fact I don't think I've finished any of his books (Matter I haven't even started yet; it was bought as part of 3 for 2 at Waterstones so that tells you how long it's been lying). Not sure what it is but they don't seem to grab me and keep my attention. I got about twenty or thirty pages into this one before I gave up.

Consider Phlebas is a good one tho, totally different.
