killing hope by william blum

This history book has a very strong tankie bias that was evident to me almost immediately, at which point (10% into the book, in the section on the greek civil war) I checked a random citation and discovered a fairly obvious error in research right away - so probably 90%+ of the book is accurate and obviously quite damning of the US manipulation and ruination of other countries around the world over the last 100 years, but I personally can’t trust this book, and can’t commit to spending any more time on it.

Loved it as a kid, thought it was dumb in my 20s, now I’ve come back around on this classic sci-fi emo thriller, not only did it inspire a whole raft of culture in its wake, it’s honestly pretty inspiring and touching.

Both the sci-fi elements and the scientist characters are really fun and involving in this carl sagan book adaptation - but on the other hand the love interest is really annoying and the movie should’ve been 30 minutes shorter.
