Kill Decision - Daniel Suarez

Since my last update, I've read the first two books of the Game of Thrones series, which took almost two months.  The books are vast and incredible, and blow the show out of the water.

The most recent book I've read is Kill Decision by Daniel Suarez.  It is about unmanned aerial drones that are programmed to decide if it is OK to kill the target without human intervention.  There is a cool biology tie-in, and it is a pretty good book after you get through the first 100 pages.  I think Daniel Suarez got a little too into character development, and the book suffered a little for it.

I'm currently reading the Annotated Alice, a copy of Alice in Wonderland that is heavily researched.  It is pretty cool.  I'm anxiously awaiting the release of Lee Child's next book A Wanted Man.
