A fun little slice-of-life story about cosplay and accessibility and talking worms.

Empezó siendo unas 3 estrellas, me costo adentrarme en el mundo. Pero ha acabado con 4 estrellas porque es un novelón.

Tiene sus fallos, el ritmo quizá no es el mejor y aunque el mundo que crea es fascinante en su construcción, no me ha transmitido tanto como me esperaba. A ratos se sentía confuso.

Igual que algunos personajes me han dejado algo frio, los secundarios lo han compensado con creces.

Me ha enamorado mucho como habla de temas como la identidad, la autonomía y la sexualidad en el futuro. Mezclado con temas políticos como las patentes farmacéuticas y científicas, pero sobretodo como estas pueden moldear nuestros futuros y nuestra salud.

Una novela que enseña como un sistema capitalista mundial puede llevar a extremos inhumanos y como critica la figura de las corporaciones que tienen mas control que los gobiernos y los cuerpos de seguridad.

Una sociedad que podría vivir mucho tiempo pero que es esclavizada para sostener una industria extrema para beneficio de pocos. De que me suena esta última parte?

Newitz ambitiously shows how far in the future, if we survive the many crises ahead, we might still be able to build not just worlds like Earth, but communities of engineered species and intelligences, and overcome odds set by corporations and social contracts stacked against liberty. That's a tall ambition, and she mostly nails it.

The time jumps initially caught me off guard, but they are integral to the telling of this sweeping narrative and are in line with the great classics of science fiction. The concepts are of the kind that feel just out of reach of our current ability to create, but not understand. Most of all I was warned by the characters’ drive to do good for and be considerate of each other and their world. Lessons woven inside a gripping tale are the best kind.
