Blindsight [book]

Blindsight [book]

I REALLY REALLY LIKE THIS BOOK. I ALWAYS LIKE THIS SORT OF BOOK, WHERE THE AUTHOR HAS SOME DEGREE OF ACTUAL SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE AND THEN JUST WRITES SCI-FI WHERE THE WHOLE BOOK IS JUST PEOPLE FLYING SOMEWHERE THEN LOOKING AT IT WHERE THE ACTUAL STORY IS MINIMAL. LIKE EVERYONE IN THIS WAS IQ OF 1 MILLION TYPE TRANSHUMANS AND THE WAY THEY SHOWED ANYONE WAS SMART BY THEM JUST LOOKING AT SOMETHING ONCE AND THEN DESCRIBING AN ESSAY ON HOW EXACTLY IT WORKS AND IT'S ENTIRE HISTORY AND IT'S SO STUPID AS WRITING BUT I LOVE IT 100% OF THE TIME. THIS BOOK WAS REALLY REALLY GOOD.

PS. ON THE OTHER HAND IT'S WEIRD AS FRIG THAT DRACULA VAMPIRES EXISTING WAS JUST A THING THAT HAPPENED TO BE TRUE IN THIS VERY HARD SCIENCE BOOK. LIKE, IT DID AN AMAZING JOB, GIVING MEDICALLY PLAUSIBLE REASONS FOR EVERY SINGLE ASPECT, RIGHT DOWN TO ESTABLISHING THAT HUMAN EYES HAVE HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL LINE DETECTORS IN OUR EYES AND A VAMPIRE THAT OVERGREW THE NUMBER OF EYE CELLS TO SEE BETTER IN THE DARK COULD BE THROWN INTO A SEIZURE LOOKING AT A CROSS IN DAYLIGHT, OR BEING PALE BECAUSE VERY LIMITED PREDATOR MOTION WOULDN'T NEED AS MUCH BLOOD ON SURFACE SKIN. BUT LIKE, WHY THIS BOOK? WAS THE AUTHOR AFRAID THIS WOULD BE THE ONLY BOOK HE'D EVER WRITE SO THIS HAD TO BE HERE TOO? LIKE ANOTHER SPECIES WORKED WELL ON THE THEMES OF THE STORY BUT IT'S JUST THE WEIRDEST THING TO BE LIKE "OH YEAH, VAMPIRES WERE REAL IN THIS"
