Book Summary:


A murder... a new planet mankind desperately needs... a thousand-year old conspiracy... What really awaits us on Eden? In a world beset by political turmoil, environmental collapse, and a predatory new religion, a recently discovered planet, Eden, is our last hope. But two missions have failed to return.
Blake Alexander and his crew lead the final attempt to bring back good news. Meanwhile back on Earth, Micah Sanderson evades assassins, and tries to work out who he can trust as he struggles in a race against time to unravel the Eden Paradox.

Book Review:

When I got the opportunity to review The Eden Paradox I was really excited because I really enjoy sci-fi but tend to read much of it so this was the perfect way to do so. I found the book really enjoyable and highly entertaining and would definitely recommend it to those who love sci-fi or those who want to start reading more of it.

I have to admit that I found the plot a little hard to get into at the beginning and do feel like I had to grasp the idea of the story before I really liked it and this was quite slow going for me but once I was into the actual story I really enjoyed where it went. The world building for the story was also really solid and it was definitely a world that had much support gone into it. The plot itself is also really interesting and was something that kept me invested throughout. 

The writing of the story was also something that I really enjoyed and that found it was really interesting that we got to see the story from the different perspectives of characters who were quite developed and who were exciting to follow their journies throughout the story. I was excited to see where the story was going and would definitely be interested in reading the sequel. 

The Verdict:

The Eden Paradox is a solid sci-fi read which is equal parts compelling and enjoyable.

Female Representation in Harry Potter: A Transcription

So later today, in 2 hours I am going to be doing a presentation on Female Representation in Harry Potter for my university's Harry Potter Society and I thought some of you may be interested in what I had to say. I also respect that people may disagree with my views on the subject and understand that this is not the only opinion you can have. So here it is... Hello, everyone. Thank you for coming! Today I am going to discuss female representation in Harry Potter books and films. The aims of this presentation would be to introduce you to the fact that female representation in Harry Potter may not be what it seems. So you may think that female characters are actually quite well done in the series but at some points, this is not the case. To look at this further I will be looking at characters individually as well as some aspects of the series in general. I guess that until I first researched the topic, I thought that of course, Harry Potter was going to have good female repres
