Weekly Book Wrap Up Oct, 03 2015

2 more books finished this week, 15 more to go to reach my goal of 90 books read this year.

The Medium is the MassageThe Medium is the Massage by Marshall McLuhan
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

meh, I get what the author wants to say with this book, and I agree with him on a lot of it actually. Just didn't really like the format of the book :p which is kind of funny given the meaning behind the book ;p

The Dark Forest (Three-Body, #2)The Dark Forest by Liu Cixin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first two thirds of this book are very slow, interesting, but slow. The last third tho, the pace finally picks up. Characters seem a little stiff and not very likable, even the main character I didn't really like, bit of a selfish bastard actually, but I really like the idea behind this book. What will humanity do if they knew a hostile alien force was coming to Earth?

This week I am reading a few more books for uni, and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by

The Dark Forest is easier to read than the first one in the series and I don't think you really need to have read the first one to read the second

I might just stop reading books once i get to 90 lol take a break
