Only about 50 pages in, but loving the vibe so far and feeling like I‘m about due to revisit Kat Howard‘s Roses & Rot.

Not usually an audiobook fan, but I‘ve been curious about the GraphicAudio editions for a while and it‘s been ages since I spent any time with Hawk and Fisher. While the narration comes off a little cheesy at times (very retro audio drama) overall I really enjoyed the experience. I particularly liked how the actors playing our MCs infused tenderness between each other along with all the snark.
So I‘m not usually one for audiobooks, but this was great. I loved the modern translation, and the narrator did an amazing job. It was the perfect thing to listen to while doing battle with a washing machine from 8pm to 7am the following morning, without sleep.

If you came of age in the 1950s and ‘60s you were promised a future of world peace and flying cars, so I can understand being a little disappointed with what we‘ve ended up with. [...] I came of age reading science fiction after 1980. I was promised a cyberpunk dystopia ruled by corporations, complete with violent reality TV and authoritarian governments, and well—here we are.
