I'm really loving @paolini's "To Swim in a Sea of Stars." The action only ever stops for just long enough to provide bursts of deep insight and really cleverly crafted world building. Characters that are easy to care about and constant tension. It's big book, but very worth it!      источник

Wanderers book cover
A Novel
Chuck Wendig - 2019-07-09
Рейтинг Goodreads
In Wanderers by Chuck Wendig, a mysterious epidemic sweeps America, causing people to sleepwalk towards an unknown destination. Shana and her sister are caught up in the chaos, and soon encounter a group of shepherds who are protecting the sleepwalkers. As society falls apart, they must unravel the secret behind the epidemic before it tears the nation apart. Praise is heaped on this "suspenseful, twisty, satisfying, surprising, thought-provoking epic" (Harlan Coben) that draws comparisons to Stephen King's The Stand.
William Henry
The book I chose from these recommendations was "Wanderers" by Chuck Wendig and it blew my pants off. It was a /fast/ read for a long book, and gives weight to the feeling I have right now that humanity is always on a knife's edge.      источник

Дэн Симмонс — не просто один из классических писателей-фантастов нашего времени. Он — автор самой, наверное, знаменитой и популярной в мире «космической оперы» — тетралогии «Гиперион», «Падение Гипериона», «Эндимион», «Восход Эндимиона», создатель поистине уникального в своей оригинальности мира, загадочного и изменчивого мира порталов, соединяющих планеты, великой реки Тетис и великих звездных войн, в которых причудливо переплелись судьбы священника и солдата, поэта и ученого, консула и детектива. Критики и читатели единодушно признали тетралогию Дэна Симмонса лучшим научно-фантастическим сериалом последнего десятилетия. Не верите? Прочитайте и убедитесь сами!

Нью-Йорк 2140
Kim Stanley Robinson - 2017-03-14
Рейтинг Goodreads
Уровень мирового океана поднялся, и улицы превратились в каналы. Каждый небоскреб стал островом. Но для обитателей площади Мэдисон Нью-Йорк 2140 года — вовсе не мертвый город. Рыночный торговец, который умеет найти новые возможности там, где другие находят только неприятности. Полицейский, чья работа никогда не закончится. Вместе с юристами, разумеется. Звезда интернета, за приключениями которой на воздушном шаре следят миллионы зрителей, и управляющий домом, заслуживший уважение вниманием к деталям. Двое мальчишек, которым здесь не место, но другого дома у них нет. И эти двое окажутся важнее для будущего, чем кто-либо может вообразить. И, наконец кодеры, временные жильцы на крыше. С их исчезновения начнется цепочка событий, которые станут угрозой для всех и вся, включая давно скрывшееся под водой основание города.
