I, Robot

by Cory Doctorow
To be exact, it is only a short story and not the book. The writer did say he was an avid reader of the "I, Robot" written by Isaac Asimov. It was written shortly after the film, starring Will Smith.

Alice through the Looking Glass

by Lewis Caroll
Read once in the course of ~4 hours over two days.
So the book... is fun but a bit hard to understand.
The book is about Alice's adventures as she step into the looking glass in her living room. There she met multitude of characters but the story mainly about her travel to eighth square, just like in the game of Chess, in order to become a queen.
This book is the sequel to the book, Alice in Wonderland.
My say
