Este libro construye en muy pocas paginas un universo y una historia de amor que ya le gustaría a novelas mucho más largas. Creo que no le falta ni le sobra nada, como si al escribirlo lo hubiesen medido todo al milímetro.

Quizá, por sacarle la puntilla, me falta algo de representación queer y mas con los temas que trata el libro.

The details of the plot and main character were interesting, but the high-level plot just didn’t work for me.

Any book where the best character is the ship is a total win in my world.

Above average space opera with big sweeping changes to the nature of humanity. Let down by the ending where things work out a bit too easily and quickly.
