#BookReview: Exhalation

5 stars

Genre: Short Stories (science fiction)

Exhalation: Stories


  • Inventive
  • Varied styles of writing
  • Complex narratives that really make you think


  • Some stories didn’t draw me in as much as the others

Yes, Ted Chiang is amazing. I really like how he explored some of the scientific concepts and how it would really impact humans. Also, I loved how versatile Chiang is in his prose. He’s able to write with a lyrical or historical air, but also able to switch to more technical or futuristic wording. Anyway, this book is fabulous for the way it really makes you think about the world around you and where we’re headed.

  1. It sounds really interesting.
    I’m working on short stories now. I don’t think I’m good about using varied styles of writing. It’s something to think about.

      That’s wonderful to hear that you’re writing short stories! That length is harder for me to write because I’m used to having more words to tell a story, but I love being innovative in that form.
