When I started reading this story, I wasn’t sure where it was going. Ravi’s character is a man who likes to have fun and often can’t recall his weekends. I thought this might turn into a story with a simple moral of becoming a better person. I was wrong.

As the story progressed I began to see the deeper issues behind what was going on. This turned into a way to express gender issues, issues that (in the world of the book) keep occurring hundreds of years in the future when man has basically conquered the known universe.

What really made this story work for me was that it took on the differences in the male and female sexes. It brought out a topic that, even in today’s world, not everyone talks about. Nothing Earth-shattering was thrown out there, but it still can make the reader think. And because this is a science fiction story, the way the theme was thrown into the mix, was quite enjoyable. I really only had one issue with the way this sex/gender theme played out. I feel that there was a disregard for how sexual orientation plays into…well, you’ll need to read the story for that. I can’t talk more in-depth without spoiling things. ( )
