Space and Mars aren’t usually my thing but when it comes to Genesis, it turns out that doesn’t really matter. In fact, that setting, along with Earth is what made this book all the more thrilling. Set 500 years into the future, enough humans have settled down on Mars that children are already born on that planet. Pip is one of them, which makes him stand out among the Ferals on Earth, although not any less menacing to Rosie, a Banker.
I’ve had a rather slow week. Didn’t do all that much. Mostly daydream, I think, so I didn’t get much reading done.

The term contemporary fiction tells readers to expect stories set in modern times. Yet modernity is relative because it’s about the now and as we all know, the now today becomes yesterday tomorrow.
For once I’m not entirely sure if my dislike for the book purely stems from the book itself or from the expectations that arose prior to reading the book because a very popular author wrote this. An Abundance of Katherines is the first full-length novel of John Green that I got my hands on. The first sentence had me totally hooked but no single sentence can sustain a whole book. No matter how good that sentence is. Despite my growing reservations, I decided to continue reading, even staying up till 3 a.m. one night just to complete it. Sleep would’ve been time better spent on my part.
