it was ok

I’m 30% of the way through, and I just can’t bring myself to care enough about this book to finish it. I dislike the main character too much. I think the story probably would have benefitted from a stronger hand in editing; for some reason, the character breaks the fourth wall fairly often to address the reader. And not in a great way.

Plus I have real issues with the way the characters sexuality is handled; mostly, I don’t know why all the references to her sex life are present at all. They add nothing to the story and are frequent enough to be gross.

There are interesting facets to the story, like the multicultural aspects of the moon colony, the pen pal letters between Earth and the moon, the science parts. But it just wasn’t enough for me to keep going.
