As part of my ongoing sickness lying on the couch, I’ve been getting through a few other things I’ve enjoyed.
The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet
If you’re looking for something that’ll change the world, or subtle and intricate plots that’ll have you puzzling for days? This probably isn’t the book for you.
However, if you’d like a heartwarming story about a diverse cast of larger-than-life characters having an awfully good time? Then you might just love this one.
It’s a warm, fuzzy book; one that fundamentally sees hope in the universe, and the people in it. Some days, I think that’s really important in a book. If you’re after something fun and easy – and sometimes we all are – I highly recommend this one.
A friend recommended Black Mirror a while ago, and I’ve just gotten to it now. It’s intense, but excellent.
The series I’m watching is the first one, three hour long episodes. Each is a different story – a short one, comparatively, although still with plenty of room for depth – looking at the playing out of technology, how its changed society. The tone is bleak and pessimistic, but I find it bearable in small doses.
I won’t say too much more, because it’s difficult to without ruining the plot. Just that if you like good TV, and thinking about the future, and have a reasonably strong stomach, this is a great piece of TV.
