We are rapidly reaching modern day and this month we reach the 2000's. We are looking for nominations from 2000-2009 for any book we have not previously read (bookshelf is here ). We have already read a number of books from the 2000's so I highly recommend checking before nominating. One nomination per person please.

Ronald (RPDwyer) | 103 comments I nominate Brass Man by Neal Asher:

Over 4,000 ratings, goodreads average rating over 4 stars. I haven't read this novel, but I've read other stuff by Neal Asher. He writes action-oriented science fiction.

David Lutkins | 24 comments I'll nominate The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon, an alternate history involving the fall of Israel in 1948. Hugo winner in 2008.

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow is a quick read about Big Brother in the near future. Fast paced, but brings up a lot of good points about government surveillance.

Gregg Wingo (gwingo) | 216 comments Policemen's Union is a blast and an important Postmodern work.
