I loved this book.

I sometimes have a hard time reading Charles Stross. I enjoy his concepts but I don’t often feel empathy for his characters. I adored Freya, however, her voice sang loudly and clearly to me and her personality leapt from the page.

As always, the writing is superb, but in this case, even more so. As all of the characters in Saturn’s Children are constructs of a sort, artificial beings, his writing and his style were particularly relevant. He managed to convert chemical and mechanical processes into perfect emulations of human function and emotion and it was so cleverly done. And some of the sequences in this book are about the funniest things I have ever read.

Highly recommended to fans of Charles Stross and, if you’ve never read him before, Saturn’s Children would be a good place to start.
