Stefen’s Bookclub – July
July 7, 2020 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Children of Time
by Andrian Tchaikovsky
I’ve wanted to do this as a bookclub book for a while. It’s quite a thick read but I think it’s one that is worth everybody’s time. It’s basically a book about aliens, although the aliens are not quite what we usually get in science fiction, they’re done with a very interesting and clever development structure and they’re made from something familiar. This is one of my favourite books where humans and other intelligences meet, particularly because we get to see the evolution of the other species and it’s done in an incredibly sympathetic manner. There are also some very effective style choices that allow you to connect with an entire species rather than an individual. I think there is lots to talk about and it’s going to be a fun and interesting conversation.
