Finished the Gailsone trilogy (not the novellas) and it was amazing. The second book was the weakest of the lot but the third made up for the lag. Disappointed that there is one more book yet to come. Can't wait to get this finished.

8/10. Second book gets a 6/10.

I'm reading a Chinese transalted fantasy novel - Battling Records of the Chosen One. It's a magnificent piece. I love it. The chapters read so far have been great. Can't wait to read more, it's really interesting. What's better, it's free to read on Flying-Lines  ;)

Still reading the phenomenal Foundryside. Because it's so big, I reread the pocket version of Good Omens in between. Light and funny read at the beach. :)

Happy belated birthday, Saraband! It's cool you're (semi-)active again. :)

I just finished an anime, "Darling in the FranXX," and man does the ending twisted my heart and left a gaping hole there. There were many animes before this too that had sad/ tragic endings that managed to do this, which is a unique thing since I never felt this way watching films/ TV shows no matter how tragic they were.  ???

Of course the very best thing you can read on democracy (SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION WARNING) is by my non-fiction alter ego and can be found here (just push the download button in the upper right corner): https://www.researchgate.net/publication/237085386_Participation_and_Democracy
Printed to read later!

Thanks for the suggestions - I might try to check them out at the local library.
By the way, I read Tocqueville back at uni, but I don't remember much - it was *counts* *gulps* 31 years ago ;D

I'm not going to watch it, but quick question:

Spoiler for Hiden:
Were the freefolk spoilers correct in indicating that Sam invents democracy out of left field based on some book he found?

Spoiler for Hiden:
He suggests democracy; I don't think its suggests where he finds the idea though. Why the hell someone who was part of an organisation selecting their HBiC through one man, one vote, would need a book to think of democracy is beyond me anyway.

Good point
