July Books 8) Keepers of the Peace

8) Keepers of the Peace, by Keith Brooke

Keith is the very nice guy who edits the infinity plus website – I didn’t realise that he was also an author, and snapped this up when I saw it, oh, somewhere recently. A straightforward young-soldier’s-rite-of-passage tale, a la Heinlein’s Starship Troopers, Haldeman’s The Forever War, or Lucius Shepard’s Life During Wartime, and TBH not quite of the quality of any of those. But competent enough, and I’ll keep an eye out for his other two novels.

One thought on “July Books 8) Keepers of the Peace

  1. I haven’t read hardly anything new since 2003 — when I became a writer, officially.

    Of the few I ticked, I’ve read everything by Kafka because I had to proof an edition of his complete works (with commentary), and if you’re looking for something depressing and hopeless, he’s your man. I personally would rather watch the Star Wars Holiday Special again than go through that.

    1632 was great fun, and so was its first sequel; I haven’t had the time to read the continuations.

    Mythago Wood simply failed to grab me. I think I got about 1/3 to 1/2 of the way through and said the Eight Deadly Words and shut the book. I remember almost nothing else about it, which is fairly unusual for me.

    I’ve read and loved Holmes since I was a little kid; I in fact read the complete Sherlock Holmes stories to my son as bedtime stories when he was about 9 or so.
