I'm a Chinese student studying in the U. S.. I like reading and talking about books I like or dislike.
Please add me as a friend if you want to.

Silently and Very Fast - Catherynne M. Valente A sf novella about transhumanism, revisionist fairytale, the power of imagination and story telling, and how fear of the Other can make us fail to stay human. Just like almost every other CMV's book I've read it is beautifully written & emotionally haunting, while critically engages w/ traditional narrative & popular culture (the depiction of AI in popular sf). OTOH, the basic idea is hardly new in sf genre AFAIK.
