Bk2 of #WinterReadathon is done! I enjoyed this more the 2nd time around as I read a physical copy instead of an audiobook so didn‘t miss anything due to inattentiveness. It‘s not highbrow SciFi but space opera done right & is easily read by non SFF readers. If you watched The Expanse, you need to read the books, there‘s a lot that hasn‘t carried over & they‘re the better for it. Highly recommend #BookspinBingo #SeriesRead2022

Halfway through Bk2 of #WinterReadathon & am very much enjoying it. It‘s a reread but the 1st time was by audiobook & there‘s a lot I missed due to inattention so it‘s almost like reading it for the first time. Highly recommend it to anyone who loves a good story, regardless of whether you‘re a SciFi reader👍

Andrew65 Need to put this series on my list for next year. 🎄🎄🎄 18h

Day 6 #AdventRecommends March Book 2

March wasn‘t my best reading month but I did enjoy reading the whole Time‘s Odyssey Trilogy during March. The tagged book, Sunstorm was my favourite of the 3 books.

“The Scopuli had been taken eight days ago, and Julie Mao was finally ready to be shot.”

My next book has one of the best first lines I‘ve read. It‘s a reread as I‘ve started watching The Expanse again on Prime & need a refresh of what‘s happened so far. And I‘m in the mood for some epic space opera!🚀🪐 #WinterReadathon

Sequel to Dune, it is good. Easier to understand in my opinion, and highlights how people always want a revolution.

The book was amazing, hard to read at times from trying to comprehend what was real between visions and reality.

Roadside Picnic | Arkady Strugatsky, Boris Strugatsky

Roadside Picnic is probably my favorite type of sci-fi — a bit dated, a bit ambiguous, and the sci-fi is just prevalent enough to place it in the genre. Otherwise it could easily fit into 50s-era noir with the wisecracking, tough as nails protagonist, Red Schuhart, the shady underworld of smuggling, and the quick pacing.

For fans of Tarkovsky‘s film adaption, Stalker, this novel is nothing like it.

BC_Dittemore I listened to the Audible version with Robert Forster as narrator. He really only has one voice, but it‘s perfect for Red, who talks and acts like a Hollywood gangster.

(1976) It's about a power struggle for control of a society of telepaths. It's also Butler 's first book, and not as nuanced as her later work; but already we see characters struggling with problems of class and power imbalance, wrapped in an engaging story. It may be lesser Butler but it's still really good.

This book was very different from what I went in expecting it to be, considering it centers around Earth and Mars having found a way to communicate with each other through mathematical equations that continually increase in difficulty over time. But HOLY SMOKES was it so much more, and I loved every second. An absolutely perfect pick for my cozy, rainy, bookish Saturday with Moxie and my Christmas tree for company.

Great choice #Aardvark! ❤️
