#currentread

As many books there are about messed up marriages...where someone ends up dead..it's remarkable that any of us that are married are still alive.
It should be on your marriage certificate before you sign - "69% of married people end up murdered" ?

I'm still in the midst of this book, so this isn't a review. Just a thought I had.

Eta-- finished this and really enjoyed it. The twists at the end were creative!!
⭐⭐⭐⭐

Reggie I was joking with a coworker earlier this week that if I were to get married I would say to him-look, if you ever want to leave me you can just tell me. You don‘t have to murder me, slip that arsenic in my donuts. We‘re cool man. Lol Dateline, The ID channel and these books have all done a number on us. 2w

Loving my #currentread on this gorgeous Sunday! I have too much work to do for that coming week to go to the Texas Book Festival but at least I‘ve found a few minutes to read!

Librariana Sorry you couldn't make it to the Texas Book Festival, but enjoy the lovely weather and your read 😊 3w

Exhalation: Stories | Ted Chiang

#currentread for book club. Thought-provoking and well-written stories but sci-fi always feels a bit cold to me. That said, the title story is beautiful.

vivastory I haven't read this book, but his previous collection is fantastic 3w
Billypar Same for me as @vivastory Stories of Your Life and Others has the story that the film The Arrival was adapted from, but they all read like the best kind of sci-fi movie to me - interesting philosophical concepts and plenty of suspense as the action plays out. But in most cases I feel the same way - sci-fi usually doesn't deliver for me. 3w
vivastory @billypar I agree about sci-fi. I started a Theodore Sturgeon book yesterday & started dozing off, lol. Chiang feels like a more speculative version of Borges. Arrival is one of my favorite adaptations of the past few yrs. 3w

merelybookish @vivastory @Billypar philosophical and speculative are both good ways to describe these stories! There's an author's note for each one explaining what sparked the story and I appreciate that. Methinks you both should read this collection. 😀 3w
Billypar Yes, I'm definitely going to pick it up at some point! @vivastory I still haven't seen The Arrival film - I've heard good things though. I like the Borges comparison - I've had a bit of a craving for his work lately so it's probably time I try a second of his collections also. 3w
sarahbarnes I‘m not really a sci-if fan, either. I‘ve tried it over the years and cold is a good way to describe how it feels to me, too. 3w
