Back to Reading Fiction

April 20, 2022

I watched The Martian and The Hunt for Red October earlier this week and enjoyed them both. They say movies adapted from a novel are like the tip of the iceberg. So, of course, I bought both novels and have been savoring them right before going to bed.


The last major work of fiction I read was Musashi, which was a couple of years ago. Since I started reading these two books, I realized what I’ve been missing. Human imagination and creativity are too vast to only restrict to reading non-fiction or technical books.

Every night, I am transported either to Mars to join Mark Watney’s adventures or aboard the Red October with captain Marko Ramius as he tries to steer the ship from East to the West.
