This week on Words About Books Ben & Nate discuss Axiom's End by Lindsey Ellis. Because Nate is writing the description and editing he can tell you that Ben spent the first 16 minutes off the mic and then he came back to eat a sandwich necessitating the complete re-recording of the introduction.
Join us as we discuss Axiom's End, a book about First Contact. It's a book set in the late 2000s aka "the good old days???" where World of Warcraft and Oblivion were still things people talked about and George W Bush was still president. Only in this world ALIENS! Our main character is swept up in the chaos of First Contact and the existential threat of human extinction. Ben & Nate both rated it pretty highly although Nate rated it more "above average" while Ben rated it "highly recommended". He really really wants these two to get together.
