Binged the first half of Stranger Things 4? Rewatched ALL of Stranger Things?? 📺🔦🚲 Maybe it’s time you read a book or two about other roving gangs of misfits going up against the world and all things freaky!
Set in a post-apocalyptic Singapore, this debut novel by Khor Kuan Liang explores what happens when machines become symbols of our ambitions and extensions of our will, and what role do they serve when we fight to survive? Just like #StrangerThings, 𝘒𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘯𝘨 𝘉𝘢𝘴𝘪𝘯 𝘈𝘥𝘢𝘨𝘪𝘰 is a testament to the strength and endurance of the human spirit. 👧💞🤖
