"Words are like weapons...they wound sometimes" - Cher (If I Could Turn Back Time)
That's what this book is about, weaponizing language, putting together words that control, that manipulate, words that can kill. I was surprised how thrilling this book was, never having read any of his books. The tension kept ratcheting up and up as the two plotlines twisted around each other to the point you're not sure who's the hero and who's the villain. 5 ?

Reggie The tagged book of his has to do with advertising and it is hilarious. 11mo
RamsFan1963 @Reggie I saw the advertisement for Syrup in the back of Lexicon. Looks interesting, I'll have to hunt for a copy when my #bookbuyingdiet is finished 11mo

It's hard to believe this was published one year before the better known meteor novel, Lucifer's Hammer. While the Niven/Pournelle novel was like an Irwin Allen disaster movie, this was much smaller, following a smaller group of people trying to survive a killer meteor storm. It's so quaint and "English" it feels like something written in the 1950s. 3 ??? 1/2

Bookishlie Ooooh I like the read 10 books = 1 book. I was gonna go just straight no books but that might be better for my tbr!!! 13mo
Buechersuechtling Whoa, when it comes to bookish goals, I‘m always impressed by how “organised” and “well-thought” many of you are. I‘m such a mood-reader and so sensitive to any kind of pressure. But Kevin, you‘re come up with one or two that I am tempted to copy … Especially that one about cleaning my (virtual) tbr-shelves … 😊 13mo
