Una McCormack: The last best hope (Hardcover, 2020, Gallery Books) 3 stars

A thrilling novel leading into the new CBS series, Una McCormack's The Last Best Hope …

Review of 'The Last Best Hope' on 'Goodreads'

Good book. It was weird knowing how it ends - it makes you anticipate it with every chapter. It ends the only way it could. It fleshed out some characters and you get an idea of what Picard has gone through. The author did a good job of capturing what Picard is all about. I'm hoping for a sequel but it is fine just on its own.

Clarence Arthur Perry: The social centers of 1912-13 (1913, Dept. of Recreation, Russell Sage Foundation) 3 stars

I found this book interesting and read it through to the end. The characters and setting were hashed out well enough and the naming convention was interesting . There was a fair share of romantic entanglements which I usually do not like in a SF book but the author made it work and it made sense as the book progressed. For some reason this felt like a YA book that may have been pushed to be an adult book. It held my interest throughout - after a slow start, though I am not sure if I will read the second book in the series.
