The Brothers by Stephen Kinzer

Stephen Kinzer delivers an excellent biography of the Dulles brothers, those cold warriors that shaped and defined so much of modern history - and altho the book could sometimes have had a little less redundant summarizing and a little more historical detail, it was extremely well written, well researched, easy to read, and fascinating.

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.
