I'm a sucker for hard quantum physics in sci fi, but this one didn't really deliver. Chock full of cliche' phrases and filler that made me able to guess far too much.

Not a bad little book. Some great scenes, some dark discomfort, wrestling with ideas.

I wondered if the main idea could sustain a whole novel. I was pleasantly surprised (it was also a fairly short novel). Might have been even better if I had recently read Plato's Republic.

Can't stop talking about this one with my friends/family. Lots of interesting research summaries with implications for personal health behaviors.

Ugh. Dragged on and on with overly formal and tedious dialogue. I enjoyed "never let me go" but not this one.

A premise that seemed a little unbelievable, but was handled interestingly nonetheless.
I liked the freedom in the writing, the flow changes, almost beat-like sometimes.
