Neuromancer | William Gibson

I don‘t know if I‘m gonna be able to finish this one. It‘s very confusing and somewhat dull but I‘m trying to stick it out!

RamsFan1963 I always thought it was very overrated, since it's supposed to be the father of cyberpunk. 5mo
Eeberst Agreed! 5mo

Pandora's Star | Peter F Hamilton

Went to the library today and got some quickies to read on top of Pandoras Star (it‘s slow going due to the fact that a lot of the book is a recap of Hamiltons Void series). I‘m pretty excited to read my first Alastair Reynolds though, if I like it then I definitely plan on reading more of him!

This book could be condensed into about 50 pages of actual story, the rest is exhausting details such as this which do not contribute to any world building or storytelling.

So frickin dope. Very enriching for a sci-fi fan.

“One story leads to the generous embrace of the living world, the other to banishment. One woman is our ancestral gardener, a cocreator of the good green world that would be the home of her descendants. The other was an exile, just passing through an alien world on a rough road to her real home in heaven. And then they met-the offspring of Skywoman and the children of Eve-and the land around us bears the scars of that meeting”

Don‘t seek to own.

This is, I think, the best book I‘ve read this year. I absolutely loved it!

The Dreaming Void | Peter F. Hamilton

1) the dreaming void, book 2 in the series by Peter Hamilton 2) into the wild. Everyone is so inspired by it so I feel obligated to give it a shot. 3) the evolutionary void (Peter Hamilton never ceases to amaze me). 4) lord of the rings.... shit is dense! I can be satisfied with the movies

CRR I was intimidated by LOTR for years, but once I got into it a little bit it was better. 2y

COVID really threw a wrench in my daily reading routine. I had originally planned to read one or two books a week in 2020 and I thought with COVID I would be able to read so much more! But in actuality the opposite happened. that‘s not necessarily a bad thing because I have made progress in other areas of my life re: quilting. So....anyone else not meeting their reading goals, in lieu of other achievements?
