Reading at the Gym V: The Builders

[2016-01-18 5:30pm] 15 minutes on the recumbent bike followed by a 45 minute 5k on the treadmill. Did it walk 3 minutes run 1. Got up to 7.2 mph, but did most of the running at 6.5.

Tor.com started publishing novellas last year. I saw at least one on the shelf at Small World Books the other day. If eBooks are your thing, they’re releasing these in bundles now. You can get The Builders by Daniel Polansky either on it’s own or bundled with 2 other novellas.

The first 3rd involved getting the band back together. Anthropomorphized animals tearing it up in a tale of revenge. I admit to plenty of Redwall flashbacks, but my favorite part about the novella so far is Polansky’s voice. There’s a humor in even the the bloodiest passages.

The part I read at the gym today finally saw the team in action. Honestly I’m more focused on how good it felt of the treadmill. I’ll write more about The Builders when I’ve finished it.
