really liked it
Read in April, 2012

Pym provides a really interesting sci-fi/adventure platform to discuss the social constructs of race and identity. Through searching for isolated communities representing extremes of whiteness and blackness, the book also touches on colonialism and environmental degradation. Some parts were a little predictable, but it was thought provoking and enjoyable.
