I love this cover! 🥰 And the plot seems very interesting, too. About the book: Britain has lost the Falklands war, Margaret Thatcher battles Tony Benn for power and Alan Turing achieves a breakthrough in artificial intelligence. In a world not quite like this one, two lovers will be tested beyond their understanding. Machines Like Me occurs in an alternative 1980s London. Charlie, drifting through life and dodging full-time employment, is in love with Miranda, a bright student who lives with a terrible secret. When Charlie comes into money, he buys Adam, one of the first batch of synthetic humans. With Miranda’s assistance, he co-designs Adam’s personality. This near-perfect human is beautiful, strong and clever – a love triangle soon forms. These three beings will confront a profound moral dilemma. Ian McEwan’s subversive and entertaining new novel poses fundamental questions: what makes us human? Our outward deeds or our inner lives? Could a machine understand the human heart? This provocative and thrilling tale warns of the power to invent things beyond our control. #machineslikeme #ianmcewan #alternativehistory #sciencefiction #scifi #newbook #litteratur #literature #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #bokelsker #booklover #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #bookporn #coffeeporn
I recently read the first volume in a delightfully creepy comic book series: Ice Cream Man by W. Maxwell Prince, Martín Morazzo and Chris O'Halloran. Will definitely read more! About the book: Chocolate, vanilla, existential horror, drug addiction, musical fantasy…there's a flavor for everyone's misery. ICE CREAM MAN is a genre-defying comic book series featuring disparate 'one-shot' tales of sorrow, wonder, and redemption. Each installment features its own cast of strange characters, dealing with their own special sundae of suffering. And on the periphery of all of them, like the twinkly music of his colorful truck, is the Ice Cream Man-a weaver of stories, a purveyor of sweet treats. Friend. Foe. God. Demon. The man who, with a snap of his fingers-lickety split!-can change the course of your life forever. #theicecreamman #icecreamman #wmaxwellprince #martínmorazzo #chrisohalloran #horror #graphicnovel #comicbook #litteratur #literature #tegneserie #skrekk #imagecomics #lesetips #boktips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #bookish #instabook #bokstagram #ilovebooks #books #bøker #plants #greenplants
Got some new books, really love the way these covers look! They are anthologies of classic fantasy/science fiction/horror short stories. Edgar Allan Poe, Bram Stoker, H.P Lovecraft, Jack London, Jules Verne, H.G. Wells, Rudyard Kipling and so on... quite the collections!
En frivillig død (translates to A Voluntary Death) by Steffen Kverneland is a graphic memoir about the suicide of the author's father. Very powerful use of text and illustration. Highly recommended!
Several people have recommended A General Theory of Oblivion (Norwegian title: Allmenn teori om glemsel) by José Eduardo Agualusa. Took the opportunity when it showed up on sale recently. About the book: On the eve of Angolan independence an agoraphobic woman named Ludo bricks herself into her apartment for 30 years, living off vegetables and the pigeons she lures in with diamonds, burning her furniture and books to stay alive and writing her story on the apartment’s walls. Almost as if we’re eavesdropping, the history of Angola unfolds through the stories of those she sees from her window. As the country goes through various political upheavals from colony to socialist republic to civil war to peace and capitalism, the world outside seeps into Ludo’s life through snippets on the radio, voices from next door, glimpses of someone peeing on a balcony, or a man fleeing his pursuers. A General Theory of Oblivion is a perfectly crafted, wild patchwork of a novel, playing on a love of storytelling and fable.
There is something magical about the book store Tronsmo (@tronsmobok). Along with Outland, who specialise in fantasy, sci-fi and comic books (and other geeky goodness), it is by far the absolute best book store in Oslo (and maybe Norway? Any contenders?). I go there when I want to find something new, non-fiction or fiction, that I have never heard of, but that sounds interesting. I NEVER fail to find something. In fact, I always find several books every time I'm there. I stopped by after work yesterday, feeling peckish for something new, and lo and behold! I found four books. As I stood by one of the shelves, a man in his thirties and his son of maybe 8 years old walked in. As they passed me, the father whispered to his son: "This is the best book store in Oslo." And the kid, his small hand in his father's big one, looked up at him with big eyes and said: "is it really?" The father nodded solemnly, and the kid looked around with a new-found admiration for where he was standing. Anyway, the book in the picture is one of the four that I got: Toddler-hunting and other stories, by Taeko Kono. It is a collection of short-stories, and I know practically nothing about it, but I look forward to reading it. And stop by Tronsmo if you find yourself in Oslo!

Not for the first time, I was inspired by the Norwegian Snapchat account, @snaplioteket. This time I discovered Junji Ito's Uzumaki. The blurb: Kurouzu-cho, a small fogbound town on the coast of Japan, is cursed. According to Shuichi Saito, the withdrawn boyfriend of teenager Kirie Goshima, their town is haunted not by a person or being but a pattern: UZUMAKI, the spiral - the hypnotic secret shape of the world. #uzumaki #spirals #junjiito #newbook #bookhaul #manga #literature #litteratur #skrekk #horror #coffee #cofferporn #bookporn #lesetips #nrklesetips #bokorm #bookworm #lesehest #bookstagram #bookish #instabook
I recently picked up Autonomous by Annalee Newitz. Not started reading it yet, but I was intrigued by the blurb: "Autonomous features a rakish female pharmaceutical pirate named Jack who traverses the world in her own submarine. A notorious anti-patent scientist who has styled herself as a Robin Hood heroine fighting to bring cheap drugs to the poor, Jack’s latest drug is leaving a trail of lethal overdoses across what used to be North America—a drug that compels people to become addicted to their work. On Jack’s trail are an unlikely pair: an emotionally shut-down military agent and his partner, Paladin, a young military robot, who fall in love against all expectations. Autonomous alternates between the activities of Jack and her co-conspirators, and Elias and Paladin, as they all race to stop a bizarre drug epidemic that is tearing apart lives, causing trains to crash, and flooding New York City." #autonomous #annaleenewitz #books #bøker #book #sciencefiction #scifi #newbook #litteratur #literature #bookhaul #bookish #bookstagram #instabook #booknerd #bookcoverlove #coverlove #orange #lesetips #nrklesetips #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #nybok
