'Babel: An Arcane History' by R. F. Kuang
This is an impressive book, 4.5 out of 5 stars from me. One would think a book about academics at Oxford wouldn't be so gripping, but the author R.F. Kuang paints an incredible picture. The book centers around four young students at Oxford. Each of the main characters is a fully realized person in their own right. I believe one, in particular, is the cause of all the negative reviews I've seen, as some folks don't like to see themselves as the villain.
