For March’s Book Club we will be reading All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders. Childhood friends Patricia Delfine and Laurence Armstead didn’t expect to see each other again, after parting ways under mysterious circumstances during high school. After all, the development of magical powers and the invention of a two-second time machine could hardly fail to alarm one’s peers and families.
“Everything you could ask for in a debut novel – a fresh look at science fiction’s most cherished memes, ruthlessly shredded and lovingly reassembled.” ―Cory Doctorow
At February’s Book Club we discussed Time Salvager by Wesley Chu. An interesting premise with lots of potential but ultimately wasted in flat characters, cliches, clunky writing and awkward dialogue.
