Talk About it Tuesday / Fallen Sun

This week I look at a book that wound up on my queue somehow. I think I found it in the Featured Books page but I don’t recall exactly. No matter. It looks cool and follows a similar theme of superhumans at war like my Darfur 3 Saga. Unlike my books, it follows a squad as they fight a major war of survival against a human-ish adversary.

I mentioned the Bechdel test, which refers to the whether female characters talk about something other than the male romantic lead. Of course this book will pass the test. It’d be a hard one to film expressing the emotional turmoil of the main characters, but at least you wouldn’t have as many issues with the Bechdel test.

One of the best books I’ve read from the club and certainly one of the best female leads I’ve read in a long time. So I scored it much higher than most.

By the time you read this, I’ll be in Miyazaki Japan, taking pictures of stuff. And eating raw chicken. Because I’m an insane travel blogger.
