As I write this I am at the airport, trying to kill time. As per usual, I am more than an hour early before the check-in time for my flight. It’s a thing I do, no matter where I’m travelling, that I put in lots of buffer time so I will more often than not arrive way too early and need to wait. It’s not just for flights either – I have a tendency to arrive early for any sort of time sensitive appointment.
Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is my second Sanderson book after The Way of Kings, which made me a fan of his world-building. Given that this book is set in a dystopian near-future, the scale of the world-building here isn’t as large as that fantasy epic, but still gives Sanderson enough room to carve out a unique setting in the city of Newcago. Newcago, yes, that name is ridiculous.
