Next, Michael Crichton

Interesting to read this while reading Pinker's Blank Slate: many of the arguments are similar. An attempt to find a center between the absolutely against and absolutely liberal on genetic manipulation.

The stories are what I suppose is classic Crichton: hard to put down.

L'insoutenable légèreté de l'être

L'insoutenable légèreté de l'être, Milan Kundera

Easy to read. Gripping story, light but firm. Beautiful form and thought.
