After a relatively long departure from blogging (filled with a plethora of practice LSAT exams and more law school applications than my bank account could bear), I’m back.
I’m taking a break from my usual rantings and ravings to discuss a book (shocking) of particular importance to me.
I don’t think I’ve ever been more impressed by a book than I was with How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu. Admittedly, I picked it up to satisfy a deep-seeded love of all things science fiction, but it was so much more than that. It was profoundly deep in ways I couldn’t have ever imagined, touching upon the frightening process of growing up, the daily struggles of raising a family, and the sometimes crushing and seemingly random periods of confusion and disappointment that litter our lives.
How to Live Safely… was more than just a guide on how to survive in a science fictional universe, it was a guide on how to live.
Pick up a copy here (at arguably one of the coolest bookstores in all of NYC).
