    I have just finished A Capital Union, which fulfils my requirement of a book in teaching me something new – in this case about the Scottish independence movement during WW2. Timely or what? A short easy read, and interesting.

    We rarely get sci-fi submitted to the Good Read, but so far this year I have read three: Reviver (see my earlier post), Gemsigns and Theatre of the Gods. I could not get into Theatre of the Gods, which seemed to me totally impenetrable and so complex as to be impossible to read. I guess that Gemsigns will not be to everyone’s taste, but I commend it as a serious attempt to consider the issues involved in genetic modification of humans – technically feasible but probably intellectually abhorrent to most of us.
