I figured I’d like it before I started it, but it obliterated my expectations and became one of my all-time favorites. Incredibly well-paced, bizarre premise that still feels sincere, and accessibly-explained science.
I’m also a sucker for the post-apocalyptic-humanity-confronting-remnants-of-their-advanced-past premise. A Canticle for Leibowitz is another one of my favorites. What else might I like?
Edit: Thanks for all the great suggestions everyone! Nice to see so many people who fell in love with this book too

Was a little surprised that he was so straight forward, but nice to see him being direct. The last question Chris Gailus asked was what should people do that are planning weddings for Summer 2021 and Bonnie Henry tip-toed around the question a bit and commented that folks should think small. Unprompted just as Chris Gailus was trying to wrap up the town-hall Adrian Dix added no international travel this year.
Edit: On domestic travel, Dr. Henry says no travel for March outside of the province, maybe limited travel in BC. Non-essential travel outside of BC could be possible after June 30.
Dude just became a psychologist according to his Instagram story.
Pretty crazy to think 7 years ago he was fronting Northlane and jamming out at concerts.

>WHO WILL INHERIT THIS NEW EARTH?
>The last remnants of the human race left a dying Earth, desperate to find a new home among the stars. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they discover the greatest treasure of the past age—a world terraformed and prepared for human life.
>But all is not right in this new Eden. In the long years since the planet was abandoned, the work of its architects has borne disastrous fruit. The planet is not waiting for them, pristine and unoccupied. New masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind's worst nightmare.
>Now two civilizations are on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to survive. As the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, who are the true heirs of this new Earth?
I will link to each of these discussions on Reddit on the r/Fantasy Goodreads Group and in the monthly book club hub thread (see the Megathread for a link) so if you read the book later in the month, or you miss the day we post the topics, you can find them easily (and each post will also link to the others for the month).
If you are not a member of our r/Fantasy Goodreads Group, you can join. Added advantage of joining? You can connect with more r/Fantasy members and check out what they are reading! (Stop by the Introduce yourself post to see who is who.)
