It felt like Wool with sand instead of silos. Same isolated societies, just with strange sand suits (which don't really make any sense) instead of the topside death suits in Wool. I think if I hadn't read Howey's other stuff this might have seemed mo ...more

I didn't come away from this book knowing the exact kind of school system I want my children to go into, but it was a good book to think about the pros and cons of different styles of school systems. I definitely came away preferring the way the Fini ...more

The subject of this book might be one of my greatest fears: that a physical condition / illness / injury could completely change who I am. It really makes me think about how fragile personality is and how much less control over it we have than we per ...more

Writing this a few months after reading it, but almost wanting to reread it - something I rarely do. It's like MacGyver on Mars. It's an incredible story of surviving on Mars despite everything going wrong. This isn't the kind of science fiction wher ...more

This felt like Douglas Adams (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy author) wrote about Forrest Gump when he was 100, Swedish and not mentally slow. Which works surprisingly well at times. It took me awhile to get into it and get the tone of the book was ...more

I'm a sucker for time travel stories. This is a fun one, but nothing mindblowing. I do get tired of time travel stories that only seem to be used as an excuse to describe some bygone era that the author likes, but this jumped around enough to keep me ...more
