I read about a third of The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet a while back, then got into reading non-fiction at night. But now I’m back on fiction at night again (seems to correlate with being back at work?)
I’ve gotten back in to this pretty quickly – I really like it. It’s quite different to a lot of sci-fi – it’s much more relationship based, less action heavy. It’s quite gentle and gently-paced, so far at least, but by no means twee, and quite reflective on some of the oddities and indeed darker aspects of human nature. You get to know the characters and their feelings but the plot keeps you ticking along at the same time.
(This is another book I came across via Ton’s bookshelf – very handy and simple, to find book suggestions from friends’ reading lists!)
