I started the book incredibly confused. There wasn't a lot of explanation for why they were doing what they were doing, but by the end my roommate caught me laughing out loud at the events of the book. There are definitely good things to be said about family that are said here, as well as the interesting bits about non-human family. Mostly it's a good story, introducing people to pretty big ideas, but not focusing on the ideas as much as the story and characters.
