  • Great Sci-Fi read!!

    Quite enjoyed the story. The ending definitely paid off. It took me a bit to get into it, but I'll blame that on the holidays and going back to work. Loved the characters and mythology of this world.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • It Was Okay

    Well, this wasn't for me, I guess. It got lots of good press and I can understand why, but for my own taste, it didn't satisfy. (And this is where I remind folks that I rate on my reading experience.) It was too.... I felt like I was missing something, something that would give me the deeper understanding that the book was trying to give me. And that annoyed me at times. The premise was interesting, but I felt overwhelmed by all the social stuff I was supposed to be getting riled up about. There are a lot of interesting concepts in the book having to do with the Earth's future, computer programs taking over so many things, nanosomething or others that sort of enable a melding with animals... just so so much. The world-building is to be lauded, however. And the characters were interesting and intriguing. I just... I wish I liked it more. It felt like I SHOULD like it more. It's up for a Nebula award this year for best novel and I can see why. The nomination is deserved, I think. The book just isn't really for me. I will say though, it does leave me wondering what happens to the main characters left at the end. Whether or not their story continues and how it does.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Horrible

    I felt like this book was written in Swedish or Russian. Just could not get into it. Never finished it and since I had it in print, I gave it away.

    Thanks for your feedback!
