Sci-Fi Fantasy Book Group: The Martian by Andy Weir
If you enjoy Science Fiction and Fantasy books, this book group is the one for you! This month we will be discussing All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders.
"An ancient society of witches and a hipster technological startup go to war in order to prevent the world from tearing itself apart. To further complicate things, each of the groups most promising followers (Patricia, a brilliant witch and Laurence, an engineering wunderkind) may just be in love with each other.
As the battle between magic and science wages in San Francisco against the backdrop of international chaos, Laurence and Patricia are forced to choose sides. But their choices will determine the fate of the planet and all mankind."
