Loving the bookshelf feature in Micro.blog, I thought it would be fun to organize my reading. I love tracking my reads, but rarely share it, and my tracking tends to float around my systems with my whims. This feels like a construct I can hang with.
Expanding on this, I thought I’d share my favourite read of 2022: Rabbits: A Novel, by Terry Miles 📚. While this is a novel in its own right, it is based on a podcast series, though I only learned of that after I started reading, and didn’t listen to to the podcast until after I was done the book. For me, I preferred the novel to the podcast, but the podcast was a fun followup.
Honestly, I don’t think it wise to describe too much of the book to potential readers. I went in cold, and that was awesome. If you enjoy themes such as those you might find in Ready Player One or Ender’s Game, or if thrillers are your jam, this is fantastic.
I can’t say enough about how much this book has stuck with me. I think about it a lot.
Fair warning in case you care, there is a fair amount of swearing, but not in really crude or graphic terms. Just a lot of colloquial fucking swearing across the whole fucking story.
