    "Star Wars: Thrawn" by Timothy Zahn.

    I suppose you could call the the Secret Origin of Grand Admiral Thrawn.

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    Ready Player One - Ernest Cline

    Awesome read, a lot of 80s references. The movie wasn't bad either, I actually found it quite funny the bad guys are hilarious, especially the ''evil'' wizard.
    Spoiler:
    I don’t want to be human. I want to see gamma rays, I want to hear X-rays, and I want to smell dark matter. Do you see the absurdity of what I am? I can’t even express these things properly, because I have to—I have to conceptualize complex ideas in this stupid, limiting spoken language, but I know I want to reach out with something other than these prehensile paws, and feel the solar wind of a supernova flowing over me. I’m a machine, and I can know much more.
