Flatland by A. Square (Edwin A. Abbott)


After reading this book, I couln't stop thinking about what it would be like to be 2 dimensional or what the 4th or nth dimension would be like.

Restoree by Anne McCaffrey

I had to think about this for a few days. I have always had a love of comics and science fiction. As a teen I had no great desire to read romance novels.

I wanted action, adventure and I didn't want to waste 300+ pages before there would be any action only to find out I'd have to spend x amount of time figure out exactly what that "action" was about.

Hey, It was the 1970s, I was 15 and curious.

Restoree is a story about a plain woman who is a researcher/librarian type who is kidnapped by aliens and plunked down in a new world. She finds love, adventure and she is the hero of the story.

I read it straight through as if I was drinking water.

Plus it didn't take more than 75 to 100 pages before she got some action, which was very important.

I still have the book. It is an old friend that I pick up and learn a bit more about the craft of telling a good story.
