Keen AI Book Club

We have a book club and try to read a new book at least once per month. The only rules are that none of the members have read the book before and it can’t be work-related. We also try to alternate between fiction and non-fiction.

The Anthropocene Reviewed

Non-fiction
Reviewed: May 2022
Suggested by: Tom
Readers: Petar, Amjad, Tom, Saad
Endorsements: 1/4

Notes: “Slightly depressing with each chapter needing a few minutes to thought about. The personal experiences may not be for everyone, but can make for a interesting read.”

The Kaiju Preservation Society

Fiction
Reviewed: April 2022
Suggested by: Amjad
Readers: Petar, Amjad, Tom, Saad
Endorsements: 4/4

Notes: “Fun, light-hearted perfect for a flight. Good world-building without going over the top. Good to see bad guys get their comeuppance.”

Bullshit Jobs

Non-fiction
Reviewed: March 2022
Suggested by: Petar
Readers: Petar, Amjad, Tom, Saad (DNF x3)
Endorsements: 0/4

Notes: “The book could have been 80% shorter and would be much better for it. With no loss of useful information. Maybe the book itself is irony. 80% of it adds no value so by its own definition its bullshit.”

“Just finished chapter 3 of bullshit jobs, do people recommend powering through I feel its super repetitive and while the stories he talks about are interesting it all seems to end up with the same points and arguments. Please tell me it gets better.”

Klara and The Sun

Fiction
Reviewed: February 2022
Suggested by: Tom’s Uncle
Readers: Petar, Amjad, Tom, Saad (DNF)
Endorsements: 0/4

Notes:
“Story is vague rather than mysterious. Lots of interesting potential topics but none taken, just alluded to.”
