Reading project, week ending 8 Sep 2019

What have I read this week? I swear I will actually start posting these on time again soon.

Last Night in Montreal by Emily St. John Mandel

This is a novel about a man called Eli, who is dating a woman called Lilia, who leaves him, and he searches for her. I didn’t like this: the motivations of the characters didn’t make sense to me, and I didn’t enjoy the story.

Dreams Before the Start of Time by Anne Charnock

This is a science fiction novel following three generations of two families. It explores themes about family, pregnancy and parenthood in a world where artificial wombs and genetic editing of embryos are reality. I didn’t like it. The characters didn’t interest me and neither did the story.
