Past me gave this book two stars, what the hell? I think I may have had it confused with The Dispossessed (which I don't remember much about, so don't ask what I disliked about it).

Anyway this book is fantastic.

It does get into a bit of grating gender stereotyping (Men are from Mars type stuff), but you can also chalk that up to the preconceptions of the narrator.

Amusingly, it also works quite well to read this after a bunch of Iain M. Banks. (It's basically a Culture novel.)
