This graphic novel series has been a bit of a weird one for me because it’s just got better and better as it went on. That might be a side effect of the fact that they had different authors for each book in the series, though.

But that could also be doing the series a disservice. Actually, I think this one was my favourite because of the subject matter. Set in the post-apocalyptic future on board a train that speeds through the frozen wastelands, in this final instalment, the train arrives at a final destination. What follows is basically an exploration of what happens when power gets to people’s heads, with everything from nuclear reactors and mutant babies to a few final answers and a little bit of closure.

I’d known about these books for a while, but it took me a surprising amount of time to get to it. Once I did though, I polished off the series in the space of a couple of months, and I’m kind of glad that I did. I think that I took more from it by reading it in that way, although I’ll also say that I think it could hold up well to a re-read. Definitely worth picking up.

Isaac Asimov – Earth is Room Enough


I meant to pick this up a while ago for a readathon, but the small print put me off. It was a pretty good read though, and I especially liked the final story. Dreaming is a Private Thing. That’s because it’s the story that inspired Bill Holt and his album, Dreamies.

But honestly, all of the stories in here are pretty good, and it’s got me excited about reading more Asimov on the weeks and months to come. I have a few of them sitting around on my TBR shelves just waiting for me to get to them, and now I have my Asimov vibe back. It’s been too long since I read any of his work.

Oh, and for the record, my favourite stories were The Dead Past, An Immortal Bard and Dreaming is a Powerful Thing. But you could pick out any of these stories at random and still enjoy it.
