Just finished Blindsight. Really enjoyed it. Felt fresh and full of new ideas (I thend to say that about sci-fi). |
But was it really hard sci-fi? Felt way to speculative for me. I would say that Anathem is far harder than Blindsight.
In the genre of true hard sci-fi I would recommend A Fall of Moondust by Arthur C Clarke that coincidentally was the first sci-fi I ever read.
If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.
