    Have you read Canticle? Any good? I tried to read Shockwave Rider a year ago and was deathly bored by page 20, so I wanna ask before I try another classic SF.

    hey Nishad! just finished Canticle, and I really enjoyed it. Philosophical puzzles and historical insight into the mindsets of a Dark Ages Irish monastic community and cold war science respectively — what’s not to like?

    I don’t think I’ve read Shockwave Rider in years though, so I can’t remember what it was like or if it’d be similar…

    Shockwave R. is like proto Neal Stephenson or William Gibson. That sounds good but I found the book really boring and kinda badly dated. Well I’m at the library now so will check out Canticle.
