really liked it
bookshelves: historical, sci-fi
Read from June 08 to 13, 2012

It's very well done, and structurally complex, with call-forwards and call-backs giving some nice flavour- when you think a story is going one way, and you lose it halfway through, you quickly realise your assumptions were wrong.

“Torturous advances won over generations can be lost by a single stroke of a myopic president's pen or a vainglorious general's sword.”
