Journal Entry 3 by futurecat from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Saturday, May 20, 2006
Was still on the shelf when we arrived for the fantastic Regent Booksale on Friday night. I tried to use it to cheat at boreals booksale scavenger hunt challenge (she'd given us a list of 20 categories of books to try and find at the sale, one of which was "A bookcrossing registered book"), but for some reason nobody beleived me that a book you picked up from the backpackers where you were staying in order to go to the sale counted as a book found at the sale...

I think I may well have packed the book along with all the ones I bought at the sale, so if it reappears when I get back to Christchurch I'll release it somewhere interesting.

Journal Entry 4 by futurecat from Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand on Tuesday, July 14, 2009
Somehow this ended up in Mt TBR, so I decided to give it a go. The cover is misleading - I expected something about nuns, but instead it turned out to be science fiction, about a near-future society in which life extension techniques are rapidly nearing providing immortality, and the elderly rich hold all the power.

Interesting ideas, but like much near-future sci-fi, it suffers a bit from the world catching up with it, even in the decade or so since its publication. Written just as the internet was really starting to take off, the author's conception of the 'net of the late 21st century is both too weird and too banal compared to the reality even of today.
