really liked it
bookshelves: released, read-in-2004
Read in March, 2004

The book has it's moments -- especially the plot involving the sentient but paranoid extra terrestrial cacti species. The problem lies in the series' adherrance to a new method of classifying patients. Instead of using the taxonomy system currently in use, doctors in the future apparently have decided to use a system of letters that ends up with hard to remember and meaningless (from a reader's POV) four letter combos that distract from the flow of an otherwise interesting story.
