    Re-read. Spolier alert @CALIgula if you're following along, you start out thinking the white guy did it, but by the end you realize black and white are guilty.
    Really a good read, amazing, and quite sad, that just about every word in the book is about as true today as the day he spoke it.

    Started reading the 'Remembrance of Earth's Past' trilogy by Cixin Liu.
    Finished Three Body Problem and I'm into The Dark Forest now.
    Amazon apparently dropped 1B to adapt it into a three season series.

    I’m on Restless Empire. China and the world since 1750, by Odd Arne Westad.

    More annoying than not after 100 pages. Little referencing, non specific dating and unsubstantiated claims. Big name historian, possible hubris.

    At OMB...definitely a great read. It's crazy how much of a 180 degree he did after getting locked up. But it wasn't until his trip abroad until he recognized that the NOI's take on Islam was skewed.
