--the ebook copy that I got from Amazon was, for some reason, not a finished copy. There were a lot of typos, to the point that it was detracting.
--the book was told in three parts and from various perspectives. I think the story would've been told better just from Lillie's perspective, as she was the one character that all the parts and perspectives had in common.
--there seemed, at times, to be a slightly moralistic tone. While it made sense that moral issues would arise in the context of the story (e.g. impregnation by an alien species), and that these issues might be dealt with differently or more frequently as the extinction of the human race seems more and more inevitable, the characters talked about them as if they were from the here and now, not the future.
All in all, though, a very thought-provoking read.
I have recently found myself disappointed. So many books are being tagged as sci-fi but are incredibly light on the science aspect or are just dystopian tales with gadgets or comic books without pictures. In so many of those stories, the "future tech" could be replaced with current tech or even things we'd consider low tech and it would make no real difference to the story.
I was not disappointed by this book in any way. The scientific aspects were fully developed concepts, technical and sophisticated, expressed in ways that gave it an intellectual feel without being incomprehensible and without making it seem the narrative speaks down to the reader. The scientific aspects were also fully woven into the story and not mere backdrops or props. And yet, the story is so character driven. The story never becomes more about the science than how the characters are affected by it, how they react to it, and the process of adapting to incredible changes.
If you like stories with bad guys, epic battles, and victories this book may not be for you.
