really liked it
bookshelves: cyberfiction
Read in May, 2012

It feels hoaky when you start reading. Just give it a few minutes. By the time you've met a few of the main characters you'll have lost that feeling entirely. Chiang manages to ask some very hard questions about life, rights of the individual, prejudice, and responsibility and sets out some reasonable answers as well.

From time to time the story is a little too much like an Aesop's Fable, but it's only a twinge now and again.

Read it.

Tim Sneaking in some Ted Chiang. I haven't been a fan of what I have read by him so far (a couple short stories) even though others rave about him. Maybe I should give him another chance.
