started reading Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir

Project Hail Mary (Paperback, 2021, Random House Large Print Publishing, Random House Large Print) 5 stars

Ryland Grace is the sole survivor on a desperate, last-chance mission–and if he fails, humanity …

Even knowing now what I know about the protagonist's work prior to waking up in his predicament, I find his cutesy self-censorship difficult to believe. To be fair, though, I'm not reading this book for Weir's character-building 🤷🏻‍♂️

stopped reading Command and Control by Eric Schlosser

Command and Control (2013, Penguin Press) No rating

This is the second time that NOLS has snatched this eBook back on its due date. I wasn't able to extend my hold because others are waiting for the book. I really hate the artificial scarcity of library eBook licenses 😤 I don't think I'll be checking this out again. The Damascus Incident itself is fascinating (and horrifying), and the author included all sorts of interesting historical tidbits, too; however, the book is written in a narrative style that feels really odd for a history book, character-driven and rambling, and I think I learned everything I wanted to know about the Incident on Wikipedia.

Children of Ruin (Paperback, 2020, Pan Macmillan) 4 stars

The astonishing sequel to Children of Time, the award-winning novel of humanity’s battle for survival …

Another fantastic read from Tchaikovsky! I like Children of Time a bit more, but I can see how some may like this sequel more. Both are full of sci-fi marvels, but where CoT inspires mostly wonder, Children of Ruin inspires horror. If Tchaikovsky set out to give some people nightmares, he's succeeded. That ending, though! I can't wait to read another story set in this universe!
