Futuring the Future is an interesting book, about how technology and science will shape society in the future. It’s an interesting perspective, and it does bring together fiction and nonfiction, as the synopsis suggests, giving a genre-bending look on the future of our world’s tomorrow.
The writing style is very different from the norm, though, and it takes a while to get used to. It confused me at first, but once I got the hang of it, I did enjoy the book. While the writing itself is quite simple, it talks about many in-depth, difficult topics, some very thorough yet complicated questions, and it kept me – at least intellectually – on my toes to try come up with some answers myself.
