really liked it
Read in February, 2008

Scot recommended this to me after we found a copy in the used bookstore. It's a little more sci-fi than I normally cotton to, but I still enjoyed it a lot.
The world was well constructed, had interesting rules, and an interesting idea about what the future of humanity will look like. This book is very political with predominant themes of racism, religious fundamentalism, and ethics.
My only real problem with the book was the repetition. The protagonist is part of a race of creatures that are despised among humans and that point is driven home again and again and again.
