I just did the first four Expanse books in like two weeks. Good, good, but I don’t think they were meant to be read back-to-back like that. Trying to force myself to take a break so I don’t completely burn out. It’s interesting reading them next to Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler because they are radically different types of books that are nevertheless telling comparable stories with wildly different toolsets. Anyone have any hot takes about either of these?
Incidentally, any calls for/against LA Confidential? A friend/mentor recommended it highly, but I remember thinking that the film was cryptofascist nonsense, even more so than a lot of copaganda tends to be cryptofascist nonsense, so I’d be curious to hear others’ thoughts.
