Lock In by John Scalzi
This science fiction/crime story is so weird and fun! I mean, how can you not love a book where this is a “normal” conversation with a real estate agent:
“Will your body be physically present, and if so, will you need a room for a caretaker?” she asked.
“My body and its caretaking are already squared away,” I said. “I won’t be needing space for either. At least not right away.”
What lines made you laugh, cry, or gasp this week? Do tell!

Well, that IS weird. But also so intersting! And I love mysteries set in ‘different’ setting and times 🙂
It’s definitely a weird scenario, but I’m really enjoying it. I was expecting pure sci-fi, but it’s actually much more a crime/detective story within a sci-fi setting. Lots of fun!
Well, that kind of sounds like my cup of tea!
Hahaha, this book sounds great 😛
I’m loving it so far!
When I first read it, it sounded very menacing. But then I noticed you’d said this was a normal conversation…I’m very intrigued now.
I hope you check it out! It’s an odd world, but so fascinating!
