Book Addict

I have a serious problem when it comes to books - I can't stop buying new ones before I've read the ones I already have! My new resolution: read more, buy less.

Currently reading

The Great Gatsby
F. Scott Fitzgerald

Interesting concept, poorly delivered.

Cyber War Will Not Take Place - Thomas Rid

This book had some real potential - it's a shame it fell short of achieving it in the end. Whilst the information contained within is useful, and enlightening, the poor wording and irritating tendency towards repetition spoilt the experience for me. At one point I found myself reading the same sentence, almost word-for-word, only two pages after it had previously appeared! I think, in short, the book could have benefitted from more thorough proof-reading and editing.


That said, the actual topic of cyber war is a fascinating one, and this book provides a refreshingly calm view of it. All too often, the subject is surrounded by hype and misinformation, so it was nice to have someone present the information clearly for once.
