Done with Jurassic Park. The first act was way better than the movie but the rest was kind of just ok.
I'm deciding whether to read Lost World or another sci-fi book that does not take place in space. Any recs?
Book of the New Sun (Gene Wolfe) is fantastic. It's set on Earth in the very far distant future (millions of years, the sun is at the point of dimming), where civilization has risen and collapsed many times. The planet has been completely depleted and little fragments of high technology through the ages still exist but the current civilization is in a sort of pre-industrial point in time.
It's like a kaleidoscope for your brain! Really intriguing once you get into it.
