more books

I had a week without internetness ;< so I ended up reading a bit, and doing other things ;)

The Neanderthal Parallax - Hominids
The Neanderthal Parallax - Hominids

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 : >

Mindscan

The next book I read was by the same author, Mindscan is about a company being able to “copy” your brain into an android, so you’ll be able to live forever, It discusses the ethics of doing it, what the rest of the world would think?

I liked it : >

Frameshift
Frameshift

Frameshift is harder to describe so I’ll just paste the amazon description :D

There is a 50 percent chance that geneticist Pierre Tardivel is carrying the gene for Huntington’s Disease, a fatal disorder. That knowledge drives Pierre in his work on the Human Genome Project, an attempt by scientists to map human genes. But a strange set of circumstances–including a knife attack, the in vitro fertilization of his wife, and an insurance company plot to use DNA samples to weed out clients predisposed to early deaths–draw Tardivel into a story that will ultimately involve the hunt for a Nazi death camp doctor.

/me has not a clue what he will read next, but maybe The Engines of Light Trilogy by Ken MacLeod
