…and usually has thoughts about them.
I’m back at it after a monthlong absence with praise for the finale of the Broken Earth trilogy.
This series is picking up momentum with a looming Final Fantasy-esque existential threat from the moon.

Dune Messiah suffers from the same lack of micro-level finesse as Dune, except in Dune 2 that’s basically the whole book.
I didn’t register this book as dystopian fiction when I read it. So many of its ‘dystopian’ qualities reflect aspects of everyday life in a world afflicted by a pandemic and late-stage capitalism.
I didn’t hate it, but I think the single best descriptor for it is “unsubtle.”
I didn’t like Dune while I was reading it. But I kept thinking about it for days after I finished it.
