Iíve been reading this book series called Terra Ignota and I. Barely know where to start describing it. Itís far-future (2400ís) sci-fi but the narrator talks like itís the 1700s just Because, the narrator goes on a lot of tangents about history, philosophy, theology, literature, linguistics and etymology, etc. because heís Like That, public society isnít gendered at all but the narrator gives (almost) everyone gendered prounouns anyway, except heís guessing half the time and frequently wrong, thereís like a whole chapter about fictional sci-fi economics, I only understand whatís happening like 2/3 of the time but Iím in love with this buckwild cast of characters and itís a Time
Also: Plot Twists
OH and thereís a kid who can bring things like dolls to life and he has a personal army of living toy soldiers

That book sounds absolutely wild.

I'm reading A Clockwork Orange and I didn't think I'd like it but I'm really into it

Me or Clare
Probably me.

Anyway, I finished A Clockwork Orange and I prefer it with the last chapter cut out. The publisher was right imo
I also started and finished Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. It was way different than I'd expected, and I don't know if I liked it that much? Oh well. Im gonna download more books tonight because I don't like any of the others that I have downloaded now

So you knew you were wrong and needed criticism I see.

Why's it better with the last chapter cut out?
