The Theory of the Leisure Class (Modern Library Classics)
Thorstein Veblen, Alan Wolfe
The Windup Girl - Paolo Bacigalupi "She ends up as a sex slave, routinely raped for the entertainment of the
high and mighty. If you don't want to read about someone having a bottle
jammed into them, you may want to skip this one. " says James Nicoll. Here's another review that says there's a lot of sexual violence, a lot of Orientalist and racist tropes, not much agency for the female characters...Yeah, at this point I'm not even going to try this book. I enjoy Bacigalupi's ideas about possible futures, but until he learns how to write stories that don't depress and enrage me to no end, I'm putting him on my "won't read" shelf.
