Brent Wiggins says:

The books you mentioned sound fantastic. I would recommend Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, Arthur C. Clarke’s Childhood’s End, and Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. Classics but they have less science than you think.

Lem “Pirx”.
A bit retro, on the surface – easy to read and understand adventures of professional space pilot, underneath – deeper and very humanistic.
It is not typical story about “The Hero”, space pilot is his job, it is a story about professional.

The Restricted Section says:

I haven’t read The Martian, but I love all of the other books you talked about. Especially Kindred and The Long Way… I would definitely suggest checking out Lilith’s Brood by Octavia Butler if you haven’t yet. It’s perhaps my favorite series of all time. It’s way more sci-fi heavy than Kindred, but it doesn’t get too much into the technical aspects. It’s more about social issues. Great recs!

Kindred sounds interesting

JumbleofJargon says:

I’m excited to read Kindred after you talked about it in a precious video.

I highly reccomend Sleeping Giants by Sylvain N for a light character driven sci fi :)

unmanaged mischief says:

I think Planetfall by Emma Newman also falls into the light sci-fi categories. It is mostly character focused, despite dealing with space travel and terraforming and those sorts of things. There are also two more in the series and I’m eager to get to them.
