I always loved that SF could encompass any other genre, but this one is Soap opera, devoted to who is screwing whom. When an alien called the humans droll, I should have bailed on the book. Now I read a page and struggle to go on just to finish it. I don't know what the hell the authors have done with the science. I hate the characters. They make me hate humanity. Maybe that's the point? I dunno. Kill me, kill me now.

This has been praised as being different. I think it's too different in too many ways. The use of language and the story are both hard to deal with. I gave up only a couple chapters in.
Apparently read it. Don't remember much of it, except not liking it all that much...
The writing is so bad I couldn't even get half-way through.
