Music, games, movies - they are all here but I kinda missed books
Following recommendation I picked
Ian McDonald - River of Gods
A review and a another one.
No intention to advertise this e-shop but I have bought a few books from them and I must appreciate they sell (often a lot) cheaper than local stores and deliver faster than local post not to mention free shipping.
I am in the middle of the book atm and I am amazed. And Im no sf regular reader. This is a bit different from sf stories I read before and took me some time to get into it. But it reminds me of my favourite authors as well. Set in India and its huge cities crowded with millions of people it reads like Rushdie. Certain parts of the story with bizzare characters and events reminds of Mieville.
Plus its full of hints and links to Indian history, religions and politics. I actually do a lot side-reading to learn something about significant stuff going on in India since Gandhi hoping to get the whole picture of the story. I am enjoying it
It is 570 pages of amazing 2047 India and though I havent finished yet I cannot but recommend .)
