Read from March 06 to 10, 2010

I finally finished it. It was frustrating, complex, and ultimately emotionally unsatisfying. All the unanswered questions did get answered. I had a hard time figuring out who the protagonist/protagonists were. Masada was the most sympathetic. Jamisia was too unstable and flighty and the computerized brain business too hard to wrap my mind around completely. The whole concept of the ainniq was bizarre and unreal to me; and depersonalized. I guess that's probably the best word for the whole book. Depersonalized.

Maybe it's scifi for intellectuals.
