Pretty random

RandomizeRandomize by Andy Weir
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

The story was pretty meh. Very formulaic casino heist story, despite the futuristic computer hardware and software. I kept waiting for something truly interesting to happen, but alas… I had expected something more exciting from Andy Weir.

I did not particularly like the audio narration either. Too breathless and emotionally over the top for my taste. It wasn‘t believable.

On the backs of hippos…

River of Teeth (River of Teeth #1)River of Teeth by Sarah Gailey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Feral hippos in Louisiana, mercenaries and an almost-recommendation by Ilona Andrews, what’s not to like?

Classic caper. Ocean’s Eleven comes to mind. Gather your fellow gender fluid characters and go against the bad guy, Western-style and on the back of hippos…

Other than that pretty flat and predictable, no great surprises. If you are looking for a light in-between read, this is entertaining enough. I might even pick up the sequel at some point.
