I have to say we‘re enjoying the Netflix show of this series. I haven‘t read the books, but now I‘m thinking I should! If only as I will want to know what happens after series one.
Although I will be thinking differently about getting on a cruise ship this summer…

vivastory The Panama Canal episode.. incredible. This is one of my favorite SF trilogies of all-time. Definitely recommend checking it out. 1h
ChaoticMissAdventures I haven't watched the show yet but what I gather it is vastly different because Netflix wanted to take most all of the politics out, and spread the story more globally. The book itself is mostly set in China and is fairly political. I enjoyed it even though it was a complex storyline. 28m

42/150 At first, I didn't see how the various character vignettes were going to come together as a story, but as things progressed, the pasts of the staff of the Grand Abeona Hotel and their guests began to intertwine and create a rich tapestry. The ending left me wanting more of these characters, so I hope the author plans to write more books in this universe 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Way Station | Clifford D. Simak

(1963) Joining the #ClassicLSFBC this month, and I'm glad I did. I remember trying to read Way Station in my early teens and running out of interest early. And though I still see why -- there's little of the peril and rapid pacing that defined a good read for me then -- man, was I wrong about this. It's thoughtful and humane and just lovely, a sort of proto-cozy sf, and I wonder what else I've missed from Simak.

Bookish Songs Nr. 5( & 59: The Phoenix - Fall Out Boy & Big Bad Wolf - Roses & Revolutions

This book was so good, I found two songs for it! Or rather - they found me. First came The Phoenix and I immediately was like “That's it!“ I wasn't looking for another song, when “Big Bad Wolf“ came up and I listend to it twice, because first I wasn't paying attention too much. So I now have two songs for one book.

Lowish pick because I thoroughly was enjoying everything about this until it just stops. Like in the middle of the action stops. It was very shocking and annoying to turn the page and instead of more story it was just ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS and I was very confused for a good five minutes.

The Andromeda Evolution | Michael Crichton, Daniel H. Wilson

41/150 When I was reading The Andromeda Strain, it felt like the script to a documentary, very straight forward and just the facts. This felt more like a found footage film, pieces put together after the fact, some speculation on what actually happened. It's still an interesting sequel to the original, although the ending was a bit farfetched. 4 ⭐⭐⭐⭐

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

An interesting sapphic/queer dystopian science fiction gender swapped Sherlock Holmes and Watson retelling, set on Jupiter.

Mossa‘s investigation starts after a man disappears from one of the less often visited platforms they live on. Potential suicide? Or is there something more going on?

Read this book after doing a quiz by @CaseyTheCanadianLesbrarian !
