    Australian Members - Part II - if you read the first post, you'll get what this is all about.

    They deserve each other, but I'm not sure anyone else does.

    25. The Goblin Emperor Unputdownable. Such a fucking whiz bang excellent novel. The protagonist, Maia, is 18 and effectively banished. The only son of his father's 3rd disastrous marriage he is both a constant reminder of a sour time and visibly different (being half goblin). However, a...

    24. Effortless A bit of a manual/self-help book about inverting the idea that important things should be hard and working to make them as effortless as possible. Really enjoyed the premise but probably didn't need the length. The sort of book which, for me, would be a great 2500-3000 word...

    Oh sure, just was like 'why?' from me, really stuck out like a sore thumb!

    23. The Calculating Stars In 1952 a meteorite hits the East Coast of the USA prompting scientists to realise that the world will be warm fast and become uninhabitable, therefore it's time to go to space. The protagonist, a female calculator (in a time before PCs!), wants to go to space and is...

    22. This is how to lose a time war Two rivals, unique foils for each other, begin a secret discussion as they fight each other over eons. Eventually they fall in love and have to work out how to escape their respective societies. Fun, short and terse, ending dragged a little, but not too much.

    21. Dead in the Water A livid novel outlining the illegal and immoral practices sanctioned by multiple governments in the formation and corruption of the Murray Darling Basin Plan. One part 'Girt', one part legal eagle and one part incredibly pissed off commentator, the approach is one to...

    20. Essentialism A cross between a philosophy book, a self-help book and a business book, this is one of those classics on the genre that's actually quite good. The main thurst of the book is that if you don't prioritise your time, someone else will prioritise it for you. Building on this there...

    19. Harrow the Ninth The 2nd book, like Flying Monkey said most of the book makes no sense at all. What's wrong with this author that she hates ANY exposition? It's like a constant barrage of insanity and sort of just an impossible book to grasp, deliberately. I wished the book was legible...

    18. Gideon the Ninth Necromancers in space face an unusual once-in-a-lifetime potential challenge/opportunity. A lot of fun, a bit over-written (especially in the difference between the narrative voice and the protagonists' voice), but pretty interesting. Working my way through the sequel atm...

    17. A Desolation called Peace Fuck yeah the boys. Great book, sophmore book that is as up to par to the first one. If you know, you know. If you don't it's a sick read with a lot going on. Loved it.

    Loved that book - a lot of good twists on the post-apocalyptic genre.

    16. Fall of Koli The ending of MJ Carey's triology in a post-war bizarro England. Amazing as always, goes down easily, but is incredibly creative and wonderful. A real thriller vibe to this one: entrapment, uncanny valley and that was a really good evolution in tone to the other books. A...
