However, I do have to ask why the book (which is not cheap!) is so poorly edited? I assume the publishers are using some sort of digital technology as there are no typos but instead entire words are missing! It is a little annoying when reading to have to insert a word in the middle of a sentence. Another problem (maybe the same problem?) is that for some words a predictive text seems to have been used and an inappropriate word has presumably been substituted for the one the author chose.
Publishers, please just read through what you are selling to us and correct it before charging a lot of money for a substandard product!
100's of years in to the future and they're still talking about colonialism? Perhaps they still have access to Twitter aboard the ship too.
As for the content outside of the identity politics - the story itself is paced well enough. It's interesting and tense in parts, but some repetition in the writing and the other nonsense just detracts.
I'd had enough by around halfway through.
Its got a great balance across the board. There's plenty of action but also enough development. Lots of science and tech but not enough to get you bogged down in minutiae.... and there's plenty of characters, but you never really feel like you're forgetting any of them or that you're being swamped by new introductions.
I am really, really glad I gave this a try. Gonna have me a great weekend reading!
I'm an admirer of Glynn Stewart's work and am on the preview list for his books. However, I purchased this as I hadn't got around to reading the preview copy.
