Here is this week’s Booking Through Thursday (a little late):
What are you reading now?
Would you recommend it?
And what’s next?
I’m reading Paolo Bacigalupi’s The Windup Girl. So far I would recommend it. It’s sort of a post-apocalyptic steampunk/cyberpunk blend set in a near future Thailand, in a world where food and calories are assets and genetic modification has run amok. So far very readable. And Bacigalupi’s world is well-imagined.
The next read will probably be a reread of Alfred Bester’s The Stars My Destination.
Gully Foyle is my name
And Terra is my nation.
Deep space is my dwelling place,
The stars my destination.
