really liked it
bookshelves: 2013, fiction

It a few chapters for me to get into this non-linear story from 13 points of view, but it probably had a lot to do with the fact that I started on the beach and finished over the course of some travel for work, so the book wasn't the only thing that felt disconnected at the time. In the beginning I felt like I was reading short stories, but by the end it was all one narrative, out of time. I enjoyed the characters, but the vision of the future in this one definitely left me feeling unsure.
