So, what books are you reading this summer, or planning to read? Scientific books? Fiction with scientific themes? Something else?
I just started An Instance of the Fingerpost, a 17th century murder mystery by Iain Pears from back in 1997. It has scientific themes–it’s set at the dawn of the scientific method in chemistry and physics, and the characters include real scientists like Robert Boyle. And it also has multiple unreliable narrators who relate the same events from their own, contradictory points of view, a device I always enjoy.
