Rere heose.

The end of week thirty-nine of the Reading Project. Here's what I've read this week:

The Gods Themselves (Isaac Asimov)

A hardish sci-fi story about a new invention: a way to obtain limitless energy by exchanging matter with parallel universes with different natural laws. The invention determines human development for years, with many admirable results, but a small group of scientists discover some terrible consequences to come. The story's in three parts, with the middle section in the parallel universe. To be honest I found this a bit mediocre; with the difficulty of writing from an alien point of view in an alien culture, the section felt quite stodgy, heavily focused on expositing the aliens' (admittedly semi-interesting) lives and mostly tangential at best to the rest of the story. On the other hand, I enjoyed the believable way that bureaucracy, politics and personal interests obstructed the good of humanity. Asimov's characterisation continues to feel a little bit lacking, but it's by no means awful.

Haganai v. 2 (Hirasaka Yomi)

Another fun read about a group of teenagers who don't have any real friends because they're all bizarre. It's daft, but I don't have a problem with this kind of daftness here. I enjoyed it; sadly these are something I bought for an easy read in a tough week, so they don't shrink the pile.

Haganai v. 3 (Hirasaka Yomi)

As above.
