Mockingbird by Walter Tevis is an odd work. I suppose it could be described as either a distopian or post-apocolyptic tale. It has three main characters: a very old robot who seems to be the last 'person' left with any idea of how the world became the way it is, an 'ordinary guy' who accidentally rediscovers the lost skill of reading, and a woman who lives in a zoo with no real animals in it. It is a slow work, and threatened once or twice to become dull, but it always just managed to hold my interested. I'm glad it did as it really picks up near the end, and includes one of the most unexpected, and horrifically understated, admissions I've ever encountered in science-fiction.
The Lost Stars - Shattered Spear by Jack Campbell, the fourth book in The Lost Stars series, and the 15th (!) book set in The Lost Fleet universe. Well, if you've enjoyed the previous books in the series you'll almost certainly enjoy this one. While this spin-off series never had quite the narrative drive of the original series, it has been an enjoyable enough ride. Although it is not clear, I wouldn't be surprised if The Lost Stars ended with this book (or at least took a break). If so, it will have ended well enough.
