Enthralling. I was obsessed.

5 stars

Compelling long-view exploration of human/post-human society, told through the eyes of enigmatic characters. Some aspects of this story felt almost allegorical. Recommend this to anyone fascinated or concerned with how technology could shape humanity in the decades and centuries to come.

unappealing but deep

4 stars

Transhumanist social sci-fi: satisfyingly inventive in environmental and physiological adaptations, with stories interested in the philosophical and political implications of a solar-system-wide diaspora. More Dune than Expanse, these remain largely aristocratic, plausible and complicated and regularly tinged with misogyny.
