Quite unexpectedly, Baudolino

When I stayed with Orchid in Shanghai I unexpectedly came across an Umberto Eco novel that I'd never heard of. She generously gave the book to me and I started dipping into it over the weekend. By the following Friday, when I was Taipei-bound, I had finished reading Baudolino, and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It made me miss medieval literature - just a little bit.

On coming home I discovered that my copy of The Temporal Void by Peter F. Hamilton had arrived. Talk about a shift in gears. Now I just need to pull up the wiki on Pandora's Star and Judas Unchained, so I can remember who all these characters are.
