Its a bank holiday weekend and the sun is shining. So what could be better than to lie in the garden and read a book.
I had picked this one up because for a while I played Nation States, so I recognised Max Barry’s name on the cover.
Lexicon is immediately obviously a book about the power of words. But beyond that, things unfold gradually, so the themes of the book are horrifically spoilery. But I found it fascinating, with all the pieces not falling together until very near the end, and enough hints to keep me putting most of the picture together and such that nothing felt out of place.
