Book 14 of 2018 is Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky.
This book is excellent in every single way. This may become on of my most recommended sci-fi books since The Martian.
I was engaged the whole time and at times stayed awake too late just to finish a few more chapters.
Not going to give any more than to say that this is sci-fi that forces you to explore the way you think or where we evolved from. Strong female characters and great writing had me thinking of this book while out with friends rather than paying attention to the conversation.
5 evolutions and revolutions out of 5.
Should I read this? Yes. No buts about it.
What did I learn? The world could have been a very different place.
