Hard Rain

Barry Eisler

( 2004 ) ISBN: 978-045121246

The John Rain books are not to be read for suspense or plot twists, they are to be enjoyed for the vivid beautifully nuanced descriptions of everything. From the city layouts in Japan, to the taste of a particular blend of scotch. Most importantly, for the absolutely enjoyable fight scenes.

Best After

A Workout

Leviathan Wakes

James S.A. Corey

The first book in the Expanse series by James S.A. Corey. It bills itself as a space drama and I delivers on a massive scale.

Wool

Hugh Howey

For once science fiction that happens under ground instead of outer space. A pretty good book that focuses more on people and less on technology, almost to a fault. Absolutely earns the right to be in the top hundred science fiction books ever written.

Rain Fall

Barry Eisler

An assassin in Tokyo who is only half Japanese deals with culture divides and life under the constant shadow of death.

Rain Storm

Barry Eisler

When I read this it was the third and final book in the John Rain series, so there is a bit of a conclusion here.

Git Is Really Difficult To Use

Nov. 18, 2017

I'm coming to terms with the fact that git ( not Git Hub ) is very hard to use. At first I thought it was just hard for novice users. Then I I thought OK this isn't so bad, now I'm more convinced than ever that git is just hard to use.
