That book has a profound impact on the way I think, I’ve taken something new away from it every time I read it.

Oh cool is that part of the Desert trilogy or something?

It's a scifi novel written in 1965. Really well known one, a classic, and apperently highly influenced the genre. I've seen the movie before, and they're making a new movie soon, and I'd thought I'd actually finally give it a read. Highly recommend it.

Hey thanks I've actually read the first book and really enjoyed it. The author must have completely lived and dreamed in the world of Dune for years while writing the book. It felt like I was looking through a window into another world while reading. Something about the family, and the house, and the sandy world beyond: it feels surreal. And I still want to know the truth about the spice I'll have to read the sequels sometime.

Yeah, some amazing worldbuilding there, extremely inspiring. I'm hooked, and will definitely be planning to read the sequels

Sweetness and power. All about the relationship between sugar, colonization, and industrialism.

This is some consolation - my repeated attempts to finish this book I find confusing to myself

Island by Huxley. I've only just gotten started, but I'm hooked already.

Loosely working my way through Faust and Thus Spoke Zarathustra, but I've read both of these before many times. The familiar is good.

I was reading through the Robin Hobb books again, but stopped, I might continue.

Actually, open for suggestions for some fiction if people have strong recommendations.

Ever read the Broken Earth series? Best scifi/fantasy I've read in a long while.

I’m working my way through Who Rules the World?

One more reminder how US education “forgets” adequately cover current history.

Sita by Kate Millet

Its really painful n beautiful.

Its a diary turned memoir-esque experience about the death of love.

Its last days, months.

I love it but it is heartbreaking.
