I should have known this wouldn't be my jam as it's been described as a combination of The Handmaid's Tale and Mass Effect. Margaret Atwood style 1970s feminism that focuses on the suffering of white women is, among many other things, not very interesting. Then the second chapter had a bunch of world-building info dumping. I also think it's very difficult to pull off present tense narration, and this novel is certainly not up for it. I wasn't even interested in staying for the queer content!
