Dust of Dreams and The Crippled God by Steven Erikson

The last two books of Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen series share some of the same faults of the books before them (too many rapid swaps in perspective, an unnecessary amount of coyness and obfuscation masquerading as scene-setting style, so many different types of fantasy powers flying around that the whole thing feels like Calvinball), but you have to hand it to Erikson that he writes well, weaves a wonderful tale, is a joy to read, and has his fair share of impactful, inspirational moments.

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.
