These stories explore the relationship between scientific discoveries and the human condition. They introduce some interesting concepts and it feels very different from other short story collections as there aren't a whole lot of non-sci fi stories out there using things like the Theory of Relativity as a metaphor for a dysfunctional relationship. It's a truly ambitious effort to bring scientific themes into high-minded literature. Perhaps it was overly ambitious as the quality of the stories is a bit uneven with some being quite compelling and others feeling a little overwrought or a bit forced. Still, I highly enjoyed the themes explored and I will gladly pick up more stories by Pippa Goldschmidt in the future. ( )

I like the voice and style of this writing. I thought the stories were showing the more complex side of emotional attachment in cultures that don't trust emotions. It was easy for me to relate to in that I can see these rules of engagement at my work too and it was entertaining to see characters befuddled by the non-logic of emotion. ( )

Maybe it's me, but I just didn't get the point of these stories. ( )
