April 2019 in Books

An Unkindness of Ghosts, River Solomon: A story set in space that’s mostly about the societal structure of the ship where the story takes place, which is very much like the antebellum South. Intense.

84K, Claire North: The Company controls everything, including the government. Interesting writing & structure.

Transcription, Kate Atkinson: A WWII story with spillover effects later in the main character’s life. Not enough time spent on the ending.

The Calculating Stars, Mary Robinette Kowal: Disaster strikes, the space race heats up, and some women try to become astronauts in the 1950s. I really want to see this made into a miniseries.

Bitter Orange, Claire Fuller: Slow-burning story of two women who are both trying to escape their past.

Unfinished: Melmoth, Sarah Perry.

If you only read one, make it either 84K or Transcription.
