This week has been another great reading week even though most of my reading is still focused on our ongoing buddy read of Time and Chance (Sharon Kay Penman, Plantagenets #2).

Exhalation (2020) by Ted Chiang.

I have been intrigued by Ted Chiang’s collection of short stories since Lillelara recommended them a few years ago (?). I’ve not read much speculative fiction but Exhalation sounded like a great way to broaden my horizon, and it was. 

While I did not like all of the stories, and even DNF’d some of them because they just could not grab my interest all, I really enjoyed some of them.

I added my thoughts to each of the stories I read for the Deal Me In Challenge (but not for all of the stories in this collection) here.
