Embassytown by China Mieville

Widdershins! An alien race incapable of lying, of truly understanding the concept, speaking simultaneously with two separate vocal organs controlled by a single intellect that does not recognize the utterances of a single vocal organ as language. A very satisfying story of humankind's interaction with this alien culture and the possible impact that it might have on both.

Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood

A cautionary tale of near future dystopia. This narrative satisfies. It left me wanting... nothing. Like a gourmet meal it delights your mental palate with every course. A linguistic sommelier Ms. Atwood pairs, precisely, the flavors of science with fantasy and fiction. If you are a literary gourmand... this is Haute Cuisine!
