Two books...

I've finished two books this weekend. Jennifer Government by Max Barry and The Man in the Maze by Robert Silverberg. I found the former to be dull, needlessly hyped, schizophrenic and unenjoyable while I found the latter to be intriguing, emotional, detailed and well written. No wonder it was the winner of Hugo and Nebula awards. Obviously, I recommend The Man in the Maze as a good read.

Now, all I have to do is look at these two books and figure out how to apply the lessons I've learned in them to my own writing.
