the Malazan Book of the Fallen series by Steven Erikson

My overall one sentence media review of the entire 150 hour endeavor that is this series (altho of course it has spawned a dozen other ancillary novels at this point) is that if you have the time and patience for a long series of books where you never really know what the plot is in any useful sense, but an endless succession of characters have deep, extended, metaphorically minded conversations about it, all interspersed fairly frequently with devastating violence, then they will reward you deeply, but if not, you'd have a way better time re-reading Brandon Sanderson.

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.
