Book Reviews

  • @levilian1 Three Body Problem is in my backpack right now! Finishing Hegel's Introduction to the Philosophy of History first.Link to Tweet
  • @nickdawson (looking over my goodreads…) THE THREE-BODY PROBLEM series was probably my favorite read over the last few years. Dense, heady, hard sci-fi. The WAYFARER series by Becky Chambers is fun and funky sci-fi.Link to Tweet
  • I just finished "The Three Body Problem". The ideas were immensely clever to be sure, it was just a bit dry. Kind of how I felt reading Sophie's WorldLink to Tweet
  • Agree. And it's the book that got me excited again about reading in Chinese :) Should trade notes about the weirdness of translation to Tweet
