The book is broken into three volumes. So Volume 1 in my copy is chapters 1 through 11.

I plan on reading along but most of my contributions will probably be mid-month.

I started it on January 1, and am slowly coming along.

I just finished Volume 1 last night. I am not sure how the introduction will fit in with the story yet. In fact as of now, I am not sure how it is post apocalyptic science fiction.

As of now, the main character impressions I got from Volume 1.

Lionel Verney- seen as uncivilized and student of Adrian

Perdita- seems to be the only character that changes (maybe grows up is the better term to use).

Idris- not much yet, used more as a "idol" for Lionel, as of Volume 1 she didn't' seem to add much to the story

Adrian- idealistic scholar

Raymond- self centered and manipulative

Interesting that the book was rejected because she was a woman.
