I really liked this book and felt that the character development was the best here of all of this series. The plot, though, got a little slow to me, much like the first book where the constant flashbacks made it more a story of vignettes from the pas...more

This was a lovely and fun book, but not nearly at the level of its predecessor. There's a lot of good worldbuilding and inadvertent political entanglements. Maybe it's just that I don't get into the Victorian style so well except for a very certain k...more

In any book where the main point is that memories are getting erased, and especially when someone with erased memories is our first person narrator, the storytelling is going to be somewhat confusing.

I liked about half this book a lot. Most of the parts narrated from Ren's point of view just didn't grab me. I liked the Adam One sermons and the songs. Toby's parts were pretty good. On the other hand I don't really see why Toby lived to tell the ta...more
Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood
" This book stands up to multiple readings, and I'm not sure why I don't have a review of it, but stay tuned. This is my fifth read. I re-read the trilogy to prepare for a discussion on SFF Audio, which actually answered a lot of the questions I've... " Read more of this review »

It's so hard to build a suspenseful story as a retrospective musing. It seems normal to read a book and want to know what happens next. But this book keeps us going with thoughts of what happened! If anything there's a little too much of the "present...more

I was somewhat disappointed by this book compared with the others in this series. It feels like nothing much happened, like this was a wrapping up of the consequences of all the stuff that happened in the previous book. There's a bit of good politics...more

This felt rather shallow even compared to the first volume of the series. I buy them because I enjoy his comic (Basic Instructions) so much and so I want to keep him supported, but ...

Well, it did have its fun moments but there's just so many ways th...more
