The Fat Years
An entire society forgets that a month happened, and no-one is really sure why. Those that recall something more, or even recall the loss, are torn socially adrift.
I have wanted to read more Chinese science fiction since reading Cixin Liu’s “Three body problem” trilogy a few years back.
I did not enjoy the book as much as Cixin Liu’s work, but has an intriguing core mystery that propelled me through it in short order.
Strangely the audiobook I listened to also comes bundled with a load of literary criticism on the book. The last hour or two of listening are a critics take, especially on some of the climatic chapters.
I found these interesting, but somewhat like an episode of the Sinica podcast had escaped my feeds and snuck into audible.
An odd but interesting and enjoyable read.
After "The Fat Years" I read: The Doors of Eden
Before "The Fat Years" I read: Where the Crawdads Sing
