Since there's a thread about the movies we've watched, I thought that there should be a thread about the books that we have read. And I'm a total bookworm so I'm always up for recommendations and finding about new books.

The Inverted World by Christopher Priest (the man who wrote The Prestige).

8/10

Very good sci-fi novel! Gets a bit slow at times, but that's all right. It keeps you interested!

Oh! A Rousseau reader? I'm assuming you're a philosopher on some level. I read Leviathan by Thomas Hobbes not long ago at all and I got cross eyed at one point.

Not exactly philosophy, but political theory. I've read Leviathan as well.

Skimmed over The Deathly Hallows to refresh my memory before the movie.
