Book List (Fiction)


My Favorite Fiction Books

Seveneves

The moon broke into 7 pieces, and in 2 years Hard Rain (meteorites) will destroy Earth. And so human prepared to live in space. Epic storyline, 800 pages long, but you will wish for more. I have spoilers if you want.

Red Rising

Another book protraying future of mankind, with life on Mars and beyond. This is like Hunger Games where the highest status of human, known as Gold, have to play a game to become true leaders. And among the students is a rebel, a Red, who is going to infiltrate the highest order.

Naoko

By Keigo Higashino. This book is about a mother and her child who switched body after an accident. As a father myself, I could empathize the struggles.

Other mysteries by the Keigo Higashino:

  • Salvation Saint
  • The Devotion of Suspect X
  • Malice

Brave New World

A book written in 1932, describing a utopia world where children are grown from bottles, people are always happy, and there is no concept of family. Everyone belongs to everyone (yup, sex included)! There is a parallel to current civilization.

1984

Kind of like Brave New World, but more grim, as Big Brother is watching every movement. It is published in 1949. You will find parallels with modern propaganda and political parties.

Rosie Project, Rosie Effect

This is a series of 3 books, about Prof Don Tillman, a man with Asperger’s syndrome. He is like Sheldon from Big Bang Theory. It is a very fun book to read.

I have only finished 2 out of 3 books. The first is the Wife Project, and the second is about handling the relationship and pregnancy.
