Books of 2015

This year’s standout books were “The Dark Forest” which was the follow on from last year’s “The Three-Body Problem” and “I am Pilgrim”. “Brain Maker” was a real eye opener into the workings of the gut biome. Sadly most other books didn’t really grab me. I’ve also started keeping a track of books I ended up skimming through.
