Books I've Read

I love reading. Curling up with a good book, a hot cup of tea, and getting exploring new worlds and ideas is one of my all time favourite things to do. I'm always looking for new books to read. I usually stick to sci-fi/fantasy and science books but am willing to read anything that's well written. If you have any suggestions, please send them my way!

Radicalized by Cory Doctorow

Here are four urgent stories from author and activist Cory Doctorow, four social, technological and economic visions of the world today and its near—all too near—future.

‘Unauthorized Bread’ is a tale of immigration, toxic economic stratification and a young woman’s perilously illegal quest to fix a broken toaster.

In ‘Model Minority’ a superhero finds himself way out his depth when he confronts the corruption of the police and justice system.

‘Radicalized’ is the story of a desperate husband, a darknet forum and the birth of a violent uprising against the US health care system.

The final story, ‘The Masque of the Red Death’, tracks an uber-wealthy survivalist and his followers as they hole up and attempt to ride out the collapse of society.
