Octavia Books Science Fiction Book Club - LEXICON (January 2015)
Octavia Books, Saturday, January 10, 2015 at 10:30am
Made a New Year's resolution to read more? Keep that goal with the Science Fiction Book Club. They'll be discussing Max Barry's Lexicon on Saturday, January 10, 10:30 A.M. Receive 10% off book club selections.

Max Barry's newest novel manages to be a gripping, page-turning thriller as well as a phenomenally intelligent dissertation on language's raw, neurological power. Barry manages to maintain a blistering pace inside an ingenious, complex plot structure with seeming ease while he takes the time to explore conspiracy theories, intense paranoia, privacy concerns in an internet era, and countless other frightening ideas for your brain to chew on long after the book is over. Lexicon is simultaneously brainy and muscular, like a Heisman trophy winner who just happens to work as a semiotics professor on the side. -- Hank Stephenson, Flyleaf Books, Chapel Hill, NC
