really liked it

This book was a brilliant saga, with a diverse range of interesting characters and a tense, taunt plot. The portrayal of the future felt scarily real, and the society was complex enough to be believable. It was a very immersive book, with amazing attention to detail. Audacious. Visionary, even.

Unfortunately, the end did not thoroughly satisfy me. I felt I needed more explanation; it felt too loose. The 'ends' for many of the characters seemed under whelming to me--I'd lived with them for so long, I wanted more. (I found out after reading it that there's a sequel, perhaps that accounts for this feeling it left in me). Nonetheless, that little bit of disappointment means I can only give it 4 stars. Otherwise, it would readily deserve 5.
