About book: Welp, I'd been hoping/intending to read this forever, because, like, everyone recommended it, and it was indeed awesome. One of those books that for weeks and weeks afterward, it is still informing your reactions to /perspectives on lots of sorts of things that happen to you every day. A really neat book club conversation, too, because people shared all these stories from their lives of when they thought of the book as they went about their day-to-day lives. This book won the Hugo award. I'm not sure that I'd classify it as science fiction. It dealt with two cities that were next to each other but had nothing to do with each other (reminded me a little of East and West Berlin). A body is found in one city and the detective ends up having to go to the other one to partner with one of their detectives to find the murderer. I thought it was rather slow for about 3/4 of the book. At that point, I don't know if it was more exciting or I was just excited to be done.
