Good story, wooden delivery

Whilst the story was a refreshing break from the my usual diet of space opera series', I struggled to get to the end of this as the reader made everything feel really quite dry and at some points even seemingly started reading in. a. robot. voice. even. though. it. was. a. real. person.

That said, I still recommend it to anyone looking for a thought provoking modern day sci fi yarn, and it's especially nice to see a story not based on the USA or Europe.

Fascinating perspectives but felt quite long

Occasionally brilliant observations of the dark side of humanity and an interesting portrayal of a period of history I know little about. Bold portrayal of advances in physics. A book of many different textures. Sometimes dark, sometimes cartoonish. But with a tendancy to run long.
