2016 Stuff Read, #6

6. Luna: New Moon, by Ian McDonald (audiobook)

The Hugo nominating period doesn't end for another few weeks, so I'm still trying to squeeze in as much 2015 reading material as possible. This will be the last novel I manage before the deadline due to my concentrating on short story collections and issues of the big three digests for the next few weeks. But, what a novel to close out (for now) 2015 on. This futuristic, libertarian, dystopian beginning of series was just amazing. After I finished it last night, one of the first things I did was go online to see when the sequel is due to be released, and was intrigued to see that I wasn't to the only one who felt like calling it Game of Thrones set on the moon. There are plenty of parallels, nearly all of them good. I'm eagerly anticipating the sequel's release in September.
