Sometimes the humanoids are very quiet. They've started sitting at the same tables together in the canteen. They sit in a row and take in their nourishment. It's as if without a word being said between them they've some how agreed to be silent. Only a fool should believe that silence is consent. Their keeping quiet seems more like a conspiracy than a willingness to serve. Yes, that's correct, I'm nervous about it.

BarbaraBB I just finished this one. Still thinking about it! 8h

Pacing: excellent, Writing: excellent; Premise: horrifying. 😆 an addictive series that shows you just how bad things really could be in the far future 😵🤯😆 also the narration changed for the male lead between books 1 and 2 which is annoying, and I preferred book 1. ⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

This was such a good book! Unexpected, hard to put down, bad ass characters, and even the author's note was interesting. Perfect start for #scarathalondailyprompts: Black #scarathalon2022 @StayCurious

I had a great reading week. Three of these books were really excellent. The Rabbit Hutch and Africa is not a Country the favorites, followed closely by The Employees.

TrishB Good week 👍🏻 19h

The 22th century. A group of people and very human-like humanoids is sent into space. They are employees on a unknown mission.
We get to know them a bit and learn what‘s happening on board by their recorded statements. Or we think we do. Nothing is clear, the book is much more about questions than answers.
Big questions, regarding themes like humanity, affection, and transience.

It‘s a tough little book and it packs a punch. I‘m very impressed.

sarahbarnes Yes! I really liked this one, too! So bizarre and good. 2d
batsy I thought it was pretty brilliant, too. 2d
Ruthiella I liked this book too. The blank spaces worked for me. They gave me lots of room to make up my own connections. 2d

5th book read during #SuperSeptember @Andrew65 I struggle a little bit with this one in the first chapters, but it was my fault because I‘m reading it out of order. So I needed to look in Google who was who, but after that, it was a quick and fun reading. I was like watching a movie. Few good characters died😢I want to know what is going to happen next. But why they didn‘t follow the force instinct?🤔3.8⭐️

Gissy #StarWarsBuddyRead @BookwormAHN I need to read the first two books. I will order them I maybe during winter I can read them🤗

September 2022 #BookSpinBingo @TheAromaOfBooks

I think this qualify for #Space Opera #NoShameReadathon22 or #HardSci-Fi? Let me know please @nessavamusic
2d
BookwormAHN I think that would help if you read the first two but I'm glad you enjoyed it. Also it could be either space opera or hard sci-fi. I believe I used different Star Wars books for each 😺 2d
Gissy @BookwormAHN Thank you for the recommendations🤗 2d
TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!!! 1d
Nessavamusic @Gissy you can count it for either or both! 1d

This is the kind of book that's fun to page through here and there when you can sneak just a few minutes of reading. Written in the style of a naturalist who travels to a different planet documents all the aliens he encounters, the artwork is quite something. The story isn't really a story so much as a supporting role for the artwork.
