List Lover

I love reading and have always favored science fiction; especially hard sci-fi, aliens, bio-anthro themes, horror, space opera, and philosophical and cosmological themes. I will take the time to read great books in almost any genre.

The Drowning Girl - Caitlín R. Kiernan Got halfway through. This is a book for literary specialists I suppose. There was barely a plot and it was so overemphasized that the narrator was unreliable that I didn't get hooked by anything that was written. It is definitely not scary, not horror, not creepy, etc.

This book received the Tiptree Award and I can see why. The way the author wrote about female sexuality was very good, modern, and realistic. But this was only a small part of what was going on.
