The Mad Ship (Liveship Traders, #2)
by Robin Hobb
I started this doorstopper beginning of August, but took a lot of breaks to read other things in between. I enjoyed the first book, Ship of Magic, and also posted about Mad Ship already towards the end of August. A lot of interesting things have happened since my last post, so I think I will attempt to finish this now without any more breaks.

This is my current audiobook, I am about halfway here as well.
In the 1800s, a sailing ship crashes off the coast of Norway. In the 1900s, a Zepellin explores an icy canyon in Antarctica. In the far future, a spaceship sets out for an alien artifact. Each excursion goes horribly wrong. And on every journey, Dr. Silas Coade is the physician, but only Silas seems to realize that these events keep repeating themselves. And it’s up to him to figure out why and how. And how to stop it all from happening again.From the book blurb
What I have read so far by Reynolds, I liked. I am going about it quite haphazardly. Perhaps I should have a closer look at his back catalogue and make an attempt at a more coordinated reading experience. I am assuming this one here is a standalone, but I haven‘t really checked. Quite odd, actually. It feels a bit like those idle games for smart phones, where you have to destroy your current evolution of the game in order to progress to the next level. I am about to launch myself into space.
Read so far by Reynolds, both 5-star reads:
The Prefect (Prefect Dreyfus Emergency, #1)
Blue Remembered Earth (Poseidon’s Children, #1)
