Linus Torvalds's picture

So the merge window is over, and the subsequent "oops-that-needs-fixing" period is calming down, and so I get to read again.

Today's book was Dark Banquet by Bill Schutt.

Most of the time I read random fantasy or sci-fi (ie my previous books were re-reading Robin Hobb's Farseer and Tawny man trilogies), but when I read anything else it tends to be about biology or evolution. Sometimes physics, and essentially never about computers.

So this time it was biology, and if you're interested in blood-sucking bats (the real kind, not the mythical ones), I don't think you can go wrong. It's fairly light reading, with a couple of laugh-out-loud moments. Recommended.
