Chapterhouse: Dune | Frank Herbert
post image

Frank Herbert‘s Dune series immediately came to mind for its exploration of what it means to be #Human. I could share a million quotes from these books! Here‘s just a couple..

“If we cannot adjust our differences peacefully, then we are less than human” ― Heretics of Dune

“Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.” — Dune

Only Human | Sylvain Neuvel
post image

#Human is one of my favorite 80s songs & the chorus “I‘m only human of flesh and blood I‘m made... Human, born to make mistakes...” made me immediately think of the title of the third book of the Themis Files series where there are giant robots, aliens and of course...humans. 😉🤖👽👩🏻‍🚀🚀🛸

Of Human Bondage | W Somerset Maugham
post image


(Day 22 - #Human)

*Meet Philip, born with a club foot and orphaned at the age of nine. His move to the vicarage occupied by his uncle and aunt is not all that salutary for him though. It‘s a rather cold and isolated existence, but there are books, which Philip loves. When he is sent to school he has a hard time, owing to his sensitivity and his disability. He becomes a gadabout, searching for happiness, but decides on being a family

Cinfhen No need to apologize ~ it‘s been a whirlwind and I‘m physically exhausted and feeling a bit rundown. I‘m ready for my own bed 🛌 2mo
gradcat @Cinfhen I hope you have a safe flight out, and a good night‘s rest in your own bed soon. ♥️ 2mo

Human Croquet | Kate Atkinson

#AyUpAugust #Human I haven't read this one yet, but it's on my bookshelf- time travel and a 300-year-old family curse sound intriguing!
@Cinfhen @squirrelbrain

Cinfhen It does sound great interesting and it‘s Kate Atkinson 🤗🤗 (edited) 2mo
squirrelbrain Great choice! ❤️ 2mo

#AyUpAugust #Human

There isn't a single human in this book. There is, however, a bunch of anthropomorphic, fantasy, gangster-like characters in a well thought out grimdark world.

A fantastic novella. I wish there was more.


squirrelbrain Great choice! I love the blurb / quote on the front! ❤️ 2mo
Cinfhen Agreeing with @squirrelbrain cool choice 😎 2mo

Pruzy It was fine! Just not McEwan‘s best 2mo
TrishB @Cinfhen @Pruzy I‘ll definitely get to it! 2mo
erzascarletbookgasm Good pick! Curious about this despite the many not-so-good reviews, because I love McEwan. 2mo
TrishB @erzascarletbookgasm I think like most books with very mixed reviews we just have to dive in and make our minds up! 2mo

TrishB Had to buy hard copy though as poetry on kindle just doesn‘t do it for me. 2mo
Cathythoughts @TrishB I absolutely agree. Poetry on kindle wouldn‘t work for me either. And poetry is great for dipping in & out of ... you‘d need a real book for that 👍🏻♥️ 2mo
