I don’t know where to start with All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders. This is one of the best books I have ever read. It’s really that amazing. It’s about a magic girl, a sci-fi boy, and their intertwined fates. Is it possible for an apocalyptic story to be optimistic? Apparently so.
“We don’t need better emotional communication from machines. We need people to have more empathy. The reason the Uncanny Valley exists is because humans created it to put other people into. It’s how we justify killing each other.”
― Charlie Jane Anders, All the Birds in the Sky
