How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe

by Charles Yu

Grade: Unfinished
Read: To page 30.

Thoughts: I'm not totally sure why I couldn't finish this one. It may just have been my current mood. Certain books are very hard to finish when school is extremely busy. Perhaps it just isn't my kind of book, though. It certainly is strange. I originally ordered it from the library because it sounded extremely meta and self-referential, which usually is to my taste. And it was extremely self-referential, but also very confusing and slow-moving. Again, this might be because the present busyness of school makes it rather difficult to concentrate on anything else too intellectual. I'll probably try it again some day and see how it goes.
