The Measure (2022, HarperCollins Publishers) 4 stars

Sci-Fi as a backdrop

3 stars

Enjoyed the book. Admittedly there were a few times I was starting to waver over the repetitive themes and conversations, however the characters are well written and the human response is seemingly accurate.

The book is science fiction based, but outside of the first chapter's explanation of the strings arrival and their meaning - the SciFi elements cease and the rest of the book is an interesting story of cultural response, and relationships.

@TindrasGrove I don't understand why people say it's not the best starting point. For us 'oldies' it's the original starting point. I read the books as they were published. Is it his best writing? No, but if you start here you feel the Discworld grow alive around you, as Terry did. And you see the writing improve. It's a great place to start in my opinion.

Sea of Tranquility (Hardcover, 2022, Knopf) 4 stars

I very much enjoyed reading this book, the pacing is excellently written and you really feel like you're moving around time with the characters. The book hits a bit close to home if you've had any personal losses with Covid however.
