What to Read: Famous Picks of 2017
'Exit West' by Mohsin Hamid.
(Rating 3.82/ 5.00)
Genre: Romance, Fiction
Hamid’s new novel published on March 7 2017, is a love story. Set in a world that is changing by migration, the book follows the story of a young couple (Nadia and Saeed) in an unnamed country. As their city crumbles around them with bomb blasts and collapsing social realism, they are forced to join a wave of migrants fleeing for their lives. It is a novel about migration and mutation, full of wormholes as the book progresses.
'Sleeping Beauties' by Stephen King and Owen King.
(Rating 3.89/ 5.00)
Genre: Horror, fantasy, Science Fiction
Stephen King and his son Owen King released 'Sleeping Beauties' on September 26, 2017. In this spectacular collaboration and a colourful epic, only one question sets the tone for the story - 'what might happen if women disappeared from the world of men?' Set in a small Appalachian town whose principal establishment is a women’s prison, the novel is provocative and absorbing. The conclusion is ambiguous and smartly open-ended.
(Rating 4.16/ 5.00)
Tyson's signature colloquial style finds a new manifestation in 'Astrophysics for People in a Hurry', where he enlightens layman on essential principles of the universe in the humblest and yet the most captivating manner. From the Big Bang to black holes, from quarks to quantum mechanics, and from the search for planets to the search for life in the universe; everything will be on your fingertips by the time you finish reading this masterpiece.
