My “what I read” posts are self-explanatory – they are short posts highlighting books I have read recently and enjoyed. I have deliberately not called these posts “reviews.” The reason is simple – I don’t enjoy writing in-depth reviews. Each of these posts will be short, calling out a book I enjoyed and want to recommend, with a brief summary of why. Nothing more, nothing less.
The Life Engineered, JF Dubeau
The Life Engineered stands tall in the science-fiction genre. Imaginative, action-packed, thought-provoking. J.F. Dubeau’s world will stay with me.
Put aside the time to sit down with this treasure — you will find a remarkably well-realised universe. I was astounded by the depth of personality Dubeau imbued in his capeks and the creativeness of both their forms and interactions. The novel has a sequel on the way, and I am waiting impatiently to get my hands on it.
