The Lesson | Cadwell Turnbull
Mehso-so

The story of an alien 'invasion' of only the Virgin Islands.

Interesting concept, but awfully slow plot and I'm still not sure what the lesson was supposed to be.

A much-needed reread for me. This is one of my favourite books. So delightfully weird and droll and fun. A classic.

Doomed City | Arkady Strugatsky, Boris Strugatsky

In the City, Andrei Voronin is one of many volunteers plucked out of time to participate in the Experiment, guided by enigmatic mentors. Initially a devoted communist, Andrei faces challenges to his ideology as forces rise and fall within the City. What gives life meaning when your belief system crumbles? What is the true nature of the Experiment? Female characters are at best 2D stereotypes, but the philosophical concept makes it worth reading.

... you can‘t put something as dumb as a hauler bot in charge of security for anything without spending even more money for expensive company-employed human supervisors. So they made us smarter. The anxiety and depression were side effects.

I finally finished it!! I feel like I was reading it for years. That was a lot, and could have easily been broken up into two novels. I have lots of thoughts, but not enough space on here to do it. In brief, it was good, dark, violent, complicated, not very stressful, and long. Whew.

4 & Romana deal with an interdimensional war, River and one of her students get into a tricky situation, and all the regenerations solve the white hole problem. I love when there are multiple regenerations together 😍

This book delighted me and then ripped my heart in half. Easily one of my favorite reads of the year. Highly recommended. #queerBooks
