I know a handful of us have recently bought Entity's book. I know once I'm published I'd be stoked about people buying my book, but what would make me even more stoked is if people actually read it. So since so many of us just got it, it made sense to start a book club thread related to it.

I'm not good with structure, so I don't intend to make some sort of reading schedule for us. Read at your own pace, post your thoughts when you feel compelled, just make sure to mark spoilers. Maybe if we're lucky Entity will answer questions if we have any!

If you haven't got the book yet and want to participate, here's the link:

I personally plan on starting it once I finish Final Fantasy VII Remake (so probably Monday or Tuesday) and will be posting more of my thoughts on the book then.

I have it but I'll probably read it after my semester is over. I have way too many school books to read right now.

No pressure! Since we're all reading at our own pace hopefully this thread will be active for a little while at least.

Here's the official description from Amazon:

"A young man from mid-2017 Earth ends up on a spaceship, bound for home dozens of light-years away, due to an accident involving a transmat device. The same accident turns him into a member of an alien race, particularly that of a young woman believed to be dead. Not wanting to go back, she takes on a new name and life among the society that's more than willing to take her in. Meanwhile, this distant, advanced society capable of such things as interstellar travel has a problem of its own involving a growing force of insurgents and cultists, and one of its more renowned and powerful members begins to question herself and her role among them. Now, both young women are thrust into a journey for identity, love, belonging, and family."

it's the same for me, my subconscious almost rebels on any structure. so, i can go from reading one chapter, to the entirety of a book in a sitting, ok?

I've had a busy couple days, so I'm probably more likely to start reading Wednesday or Thursday now. I'm like Clark though. Once I actually start it I'll probably finish it fairly quickly. I was thinking about doing a chapter a day, but I already know myself. I'll want to just keep reading instead of artificially breaking up my pace.

All I can say to that is you do you, and hopefully you enjoy the story and its conclusion.
