My June reads. Tagged book is perhaps my favorite, but I enjoyed Bangkok and Cusk's trilogy, too (I read the first book last month). I usually average at 6, so this was a good month for me. 🏖 I have one more month of vacation, so I'm curating my books for July!
The synopsis doesn't do this justice: gender roles, women's rights, aborigines & cyborgs; decimated pasts, uncertain futures. The cost of a human life during war, repeated w/ different players but same outcomes. You meet an indigenous group in Taiwan, a Japan struggling w/ infertility, Philippine OFWs, a glimpse of broken Alaska w/ a promise in exchange for your life. But what else can be traded for, except your own life?
