Even though it’s a dystopia you’ve seen and read before, there’s an interesting slant on this world. Wouldn’t you want to be a superhero rather than live a constrained life with little prospects. Glad I’m not in that predicament.
May looks good to go. I have a few ARCs scheduled and a couple in particular that I’m looking forward to, Michelle Obama’s biography to listen to before I see the Netflix special and catching up on anything I should have read.
Corporate Gunslinger seems so very timely about the power of corporations and overwhelming debt. Insurance companies already use small print to deny claims, thus it’s no stretch to imagine the possibility that they would eventually utilise skilled killers to ensure they don’t have to pay out. In no way does it seem strange that gunfighting is part of the American legal system.
Given all that is going on (for me personally) in March 2020, reading is taking a backseat this month. I’ve cut back on the usual extravagant list of books to read and will instead try where I can to catch up on the books that were missed in previous months. Fingers crossed.
Duncan Versus the Googleys by Kate Milner is a super read, full of good humour, fantastic feats, and friendship. These are children you wish you knew and were friends with. Deftly weaving social issues in a rip-roaring tale of heroic tweens and villainous seniors.
