I had a week without internetness ;< so I ended up reading a bit, and doing other things
The first series I read was The Neanderthal Parallax by Robert J. Sawyer Its a series of three books, in which a portal to a parallel dimension is opened, but in this dimension the Neanderthals came to power instead of us. The series is all about our communication, love etc with the Neanderthals : >
I got a little bored, so I started reading. This time It’s a book called Spin where the earth is suddenly wrapped in a artificial membrane which slows down time, so each second on earth is three years outside of the membrane. The book is about humanity trying to figure out why this has happend, and to do something about it before the sun turns into a red giant and destroys them.
So, I’ve kind of had an urge to read a few books (something I don’t do often enough), and I kind of get obsessive and tend to read the books in one sitting (kills my sleep cycle… ;<)
In the last few weeks, I’ve read quite a few books the first was a series called Axis of Time Which is a series revolved around a US lead taskforce of ships in 2021 which end up traveling back in time to 1942, and the impact these advanced warships have on the culture of 1942. The problem isn’t only with the technology they bring back with them (which is a huge issue in the books), its also the attitude of the crew, how many ships in 1942 had female crew members? or openly homosexual ones?
I quite enjoyed reading this series, and I recommend that you go read them too ;p
There are three books in the series (I do wish there were more :()
Onto the next series of books that I’ve been reading
Twilight, yes I know many of you are sick of hearing about it =p so I wont go into much detail, but the books were quite enjoyable. Its like a classic romance novel where two lovers are figuring out their relationship and have to struggle through issues and dangers….. It has a nice supernatural cast of creatures, like vampires and werewolves in it to make things interesting ;p.
Quite a few people have said bad things about the movie, I more want to see it to compare how the author and director envisioned the characters compared to how I imagined the characters (just looking at the movie poster I can see small differences)
If you any suggestions for the next series of books I should read leave a comment
(If you haven’t figured it out yet, I do like scifi-ish books ;p)
