Verified Purchase. The story unfolds as Zachary, his battle bot Pack, and the mechanic Benedict grapple with life on the frozen moon Europa with the assistance of the androids left behind on Galilei when it crashed. What Zack will come to realize after recovering an Integrated Confederation module in the ice is that Rosa, her family and those that escaped on the Celeste and Fortress are struggling to survive the abuse and hardship in the mine on Titan.
When they reunite Zachary and Rosa will not only have to deal with his secret, but also confront the Nucleus, the radical military underpin of the Confederation, expose the Galilei's destruction to the Titan's citizens and tackle General Sokolov and his troops who hold the key to the Souls Program.

Together they face what seem to be insurmountable odds, but won't give up even at the cost of their lives if it means they can save family, friends and Galilei's survivors. In this book Zachary undergoes a transformation that he must come to terms with before he can take on the antagonists that jeopardize the future of Titan's human and android population. He continues to be a strong character, determined and stubborn.
After reuniting with her boyfriend, Rosa not only shows courage under fire, but determination and self-sacrifice. Add to the familiar characters in the series the androids Rupert and Phillip who overcome the basic directive of their programming to support Zachary in his struggle; their wit and indecision adding humour to the heightened tension.
Benedict, the mechanic with his grumbles and groaning takes a central role not only devising a method of escaping Europa, but loyally and bravely standing with Zachary against the forces of the Nucleus and General Sokolov. I found the personalities of all the characters not only engaging but believable except for Zachary's overly obsessive love for Rosa. Unlike the previous novels the plot of "Disrupt" traverses the darkness of space between the frozen wasteland of Europa, to the mine and stellar community of Titan where the Nucleus seeks to capture the Souls technology and Haven remains oblivious to the reasons behind the Galilei's demise and the whereabouts of its occupants.

I heartily recommend Who Is Rich? The narrator, Rich Fischer, a once somewhat famous cartoonist, will please anyone who likes their protagonists clever and deluded, hopeful and doomed. His poems are intelligent and moving and find the perfect balance between intricacy and directness.

Who Is Rich? I plan to read it while visiting my sister in Providence, Rhode Island. On a trip that is mainly travel, I want books that will inspire me, that are humane and thought-provoking. Oscillating between bold declarations and restrained, seething fury, the poems slowly build to a storm in the psyche. The book is a masterclass in line-making and metaphor. It lifts me, like the best books, higher into myself. It is the epitome of autofiction — and advances the tradition to include images and photographs.
Brutal and unforgiving, it explores a crumbling marriage and its ensuing existential crisis through the lens of the West Virginian working class. A classic of urgent, American storytelling. There have been quite a few such books recently, most of them overpraised and not as well written as their admirers claim.

But Tallis writes with clarity and wit about the morbid condition of love, which emerges here as a kind of mental disorder. I was mesmerised by this book, which manages to be steamy hot and sweet at the same time. An American Marriage Algonquin by Tayari Jones is another incredible love story, though fraught with greater challenges for the couple at the centre, which makes the story all the more moving.
You will never forget the story of Celestial and Roy. Unfortunately, there are no grand travel plans for me this season. I read The One Who Wrote Destiny Atlantic by Nikesh Shukla, a beautiful, brilliant modern classic, cover to cover on one long-haul flight — take tissues! Every character makes a perfect holiday companion. Go Went Gone Granta, translated by Susan Bernofsky by Jenny Erpenbeck, looking at the plight of asylum seekers as told through a retired university professor, I found very moving.
I think the book is telling me to believe in myself, to think at a higher-than-average level, and to not get bogged down with petty things. Ideal holiday reading. My own summer holiday will be spent in Sweden doing research for a book. It made me laugh, think and cry. It did exactly what memoirs ought to do: made me want to rush straight back to her fiction. They publish so much clever, challenging and fascinating stuff. Corbin writes sparely, beautifully and with an exquisite fastidiousness about, well… something and nothing: quiet. I intend to consume all three of the above, at home or on trains, in an atmosphere of gentle reverence.
Steve Jobs fell in love with 'King Lear' by William Shakespeare in his final years of high school.
Another that had me in its grip, due to her insightful and direct voice, was Kudos Faber by Rachel Cusk. Cusk has a piercing intellect but demonstrates it through perspicacity, not by showing off on the page. I came to the graphic memoir Persepolis Pantheon by Marjane Satrapi via my year-old daughter. It is set in Iran around the Islamic revolution when the author is We accompany her through her gradual awakening to politics, love, oppression and the complexity of families — and her drawings are enchanting. Ponti Picador by Sharlene Teo is a sultry, hilarious dissection of mother-daughter relationships, and the effect of time and teenagehood on friendships, against the backdrop of Singapore B-movies.
It oozes confidence.
