  • Strong character development? No
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


I didn't find this very readable with: verbose descriptions, an unclear perspective (when is this story being recorded?), and sections that went nowhere. This story felt like it could have used more editing to me.  I did find interesting the ideas introduced in the first half  but I wanted to see these explored a little more. The second half lost momentum for me as it was mostly focussed on events in the main character's past on Earth, which I didn't really care about.
