24. The Last Policeman. Trilogy series about a world that knows it’s days are numbered. A rogue meteor is detected that they know will hit Earth (I think it starts at two years until impact), and there is nothing they can do to stop or deflect it. Chronicles civilization’s descent into chaos. Follows one policeman who uses his time to help others solve crimes and find missing persons.
Kinda like “Looking for a Friend for the End of the World”, but with more of a crime/mystery angle instead of romcom.
25. Dhalgren by Samuel R Delaney. It has this unsettling nightmare feel to it that stuck with me for a month after finishing it.
26. High Life by Matthew Stokoe. That book was so hard to read in a few places that I needed up skipping a few pages ahead in my paperback just to get past those scenes. I still have his book Cows on my kindle, but I haven’t been able to get the courage to read it yet.
For non-fiction I would go with Deranged by Harold Schechter. That one was about Albert Fish, and it was a gruesome read.
