PopCo by Scarlett Thomas

Watch me post three days in a row (though it's easy when I don't have to work yet)!

I recently finished "PopCo" and I simply can't go on without spreading the news about the greatness of this book. Scarlett Thomas doesn't seem to be nearly as well known as she deserves to be.

It's always a bit difficult to describe the plots of her books and they tend not to be the real point either, but each of her books leaves you feeling like you just had a cozy coffee conversation with an incredibly sophisticated, lovely andout funny person. And on top of that, I always learn something when I read her books and I probably learned more about math from PopCo than I did in a year in high school.
