The Time Will Come is a fantastic meme hosted by Books For Company where we can feature those poor books that we brought, put on the shelf, and haven't (yet!) read.
All you have to do is:
- Pick a book you have been meaning to read
- Do a post to tell us about the book
- Link the post in the linky
- Visit the other blogs!
This weeks' languishing literature is:
Published: January 1977
Pages: 640 (paperback)
For millionaire Tim Hamner, the comet he helped discover is a ticket to immortality. For filmmaker Harvey Randall, it's a chance to redeem a flagging career. And for astronauts John Baker and Rick Delanty, it's a second chance for glory in outer space.
Lucifer's Hammer is a PA classic. So why haven't I read it yet? I've tried several times, but I don't think I was in the right frame of mind for this 640-page epic. Although the synopsis is a bit vague, Lucifer's Hammer is a little like Armageddon if those oil rig dudes hadn't been so lucky and the meteor hit the earth.
I need to read this one day soon - maybe my upcoming May holidays when I've got nothing to do EXCEPT read will be the perfect opportunity!
