As a guy who has read in excess of, I don't know, 4,000 maybe, Science Fiction (note spelling, I am old) novels, let me help.
Find Ian M Banks Culture Novels. Be careful about that middle initial as he wrote other forms and the MI distinguishes the SF.
I can assure you that I like BIG thinking and with the exception of very few authors, this guy writes TITANICALLY.
Our misfortune is that he passed last year.
I really liked the 'Killer Bs' Brin (Uplift Series), Bear (Eon series) and Benford (Galactic Center) will help you pass the time being enthralled.
That is If you like big.
If you want small and personal 'Dying Inside', 'Flowers for Algernon', 'Alas Babylon', 'Brain Wave' and anything Sturgeon did will calm your soul-even
If it weren't for the viability of the internet, I would be (and have been) in your shoes. I was reading excessively, obsessively for years. Sometimes
to the tune of (IKYN) a novel a day. I wear glasses. They help me when I play 'Mass Effect'.
