This is a thoughtful and thought-provoking piece of science fiction. Initially, it comes across as dystopian, but the ending lifts it from that generic genre into something apart.
The central character is so well-drawn and involving. It's easy to empathise with this disturbed but sympathetic character. The way the story plays with time is engaging and the complexities are handled very well. The whole is utterly believable and the story moves with good and varied pace through its various stages.

One of the most powerful pieces of short literature I've read. I'd say this book has the power not only to bring out new ideas and thoughts, but to actually sway the opinions of the reader about subjects upon which their mind is already made up. The not-yet-forgotten setting does a lot to expose how selective we can be about remembering the past.
