Novel Tease

Random meanderings about the books I love—or don't. 

Interspersed with observations about my hobbies: Beer & Wine, Bridge, Bikes and Bow-wows.

The Memories of Milo Morai - Robert   Adams
This series is one of my guilty pleasures.

In this case, perhaps, more guilty than usual, as I confess to have read a pirated e-copy. I bought the first 14 volumes of the series before it went out of print. If anybody ever gets around to re-releasing volumes 15-18, I promise I'll buy them...

But back to the more usual meaning of "guilty pleasures".  Robert Adams is not really a very good writer, but he's an amazing story builder. The sheer scope of his post-apocalyptic world is amazing. It's phenomenally well crafted. If only his characters didn't go into long pointless soliloquies.
