Rate this book
Clear rating
Short book which covers about everything. However, this book could have been more reader friendly, as I felt like I was lost reading the ever changing monarch names. Maybe some better thematical separation would have made it easier to grasp. However, ...more

Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Brave New World is a dystopian (or maybe utopian parody) sci fi classic by Aldous Huxley. It is a must-read book mainly due to being one of the first of its kind. It brought many sci fi concepts out, such a growing people in jars, conditioning of mas ...more

Auringon ydin by Johanna Sinisalo
Rate this book
Clear rating
Johanna Sinisalon Auringon Ydin vaatii ehkä hetken lukemista, ennen kuin maailma ja sen lainalaisuudet aukeavat. Kirjan ensimmäinen puolisko on maailmaan ja hahmoihin tutustumista, ja toisessa puoliskossa tarina vasta pääsee vauhtiin. Tarina, joka on ...more

This one is difficult to review. When I finished the book, I liked it a lot more than while reading it.

I picked this up solely because it was at the number one place at the book store’s fiction list. I didn’t read any revies, just the covers. And qui
