Book Review | The Last Human

Since the apocalypse is happening right now (not really) what better time than to read a book about the last human in the universe? Which is exactly what I did this weekend (when I wasn’t glued to the Nintendo Switch I just bought myself). Anyway, I am very tired – because of course I’m writing […]

Book Review | The God Game

Artificial Intelligence both terrifies and intrigues me. And while I don’t always love AI books, I usually pick them up anyway. So I was definitely intrigued by The God Game, which has an AI who believes it is God. Because what’s scarier than an omniscient computer who thinks it’s also omnipotent?

Book Review | Binti

Almost every time I browse diverse book lists or lists of great science fiction books, Nnedi Okorafor’s Binti comes up. To be fair, the cover is pretty eye-catching (and gorgeous), but I still feel like I see this book everywhere and it looked amazing. Plus, I will read basically anything that’s been blurbed by Neil Gaiman. […]
