Book trailer for Dorothy Koomson's newest novel.
I read Free to Fall by Lauren Miller over the weekend, which had a very interesting premise — complete reliance on a handheld device that made all the decisions for for its owner. What drink should you get at a coffee shop? Which topic should you pick for your term paper? Did you have enough time to talk to your friend before your next class?
These ideas about the integration of smartphones into our lives is a very pertinent issue today. Set in 2030, this book visits a possible future that would make me shudder. Yet it is fascinating what kind of an impact technology can have on humanity. Also, who is ultimately in control?
Anyone who has ever asked these questions might be interested in checking out Free to Fall. I'll be posting my book review in the coming days.
Started reading Don't Call Me Baby by Gwendolyn Heasley today and the first few chapters have been quite funny. I think the premise is interesting and very pertinent today. How many parents are eager to share their baby photos on Facebook? All the firsts of their precious little children. Question is, when does this stop? And how much is too much?
I expect this book to be entirely hilarious and excruciatingly embarrassing for the main characters. Can't wait to get into this properly.
