Pitter Patter of Little Thoughts

If I had an addiction, it would probably be books. All kinds of books. There is almost nothing better than curling up with fuzzy pillows, warm blankets, a mug of hot chocolate, and of course a book to fall into. Trying to get a full account of all the books I've read in the past - and also trying to be more diligent about documenting the books I read nowadays (and reviewing them). Thus, all current books I read will be reviewed, and all books I've realized I read in the past will not be reviewed unless I read them again. Also trying to expand my palate in books and genres. There's nothing I love better than a recommended new book in a different genre that surpasses my expectations. Feel free to leave a recommendation ^^

The Plague

The Plague - Ken Liu A short story about the future of the world after a plague changes humans into monsters.

Found Ken Liu as an author after reading the Paper Menagerie and started going through his work. I found this story to be a miss for me. It's written very well with a great handle of characterization and plot development for the amount of pages a short stories contain.

But for me, there was just no real connection to the story. It was a good story. But I've seen so many similar things written out and explored in longer novels that this one just felt like another glimpse of a dystopia world.

Nothing exactly new, nothing mind blowing. Just a decent read that was okay.

Two stars. But it's super short, so I would recommend it for sci-fi fans anyway. And people who like short stories.
