Islands in the Sky by Arthur C. Clarke
Rate this book
Clear rating
Clarke is the man, but I think this book is only going to work for you if you are a tween science nerd living in the past. It is so cheesy and outdated and structure-less and full of conflict-free episodes.

Common Sense 101 by Dale Ahlquist

Clear rating
I mean, Chesterton is one of the greats, so a Greatest Hits could not be anything but profound, but the ultimate feeling of this text is of Sparknotes, patchwork, 'n' political commentary that goes too far.

Old Man's War by John Scalzi

Seems to me like Ender's Game in reverse, conceptually. When you get older and no longer feel like Ender, you can read this and have a similar experience. You're never too young old to fight an intergalactic war!

A huge page-turner for me, and the wha

Earth Abides by George R. Stewart

I was enthralled at the depth of the world-building (world-destroying?) in this dsytopia even in a world where the disease-wipes-us-out trope has never been more overdone. "We lost a real life game of Pandemic and here we go" could be a lame set up, ...more
