It was quite generic. Evil genius who is neurodivergent wants to destroy humanity. Humanities student used a propaganda. Not to mention the combination of the fridged woman and manic pixie dream girl. Overall, it had some good commentary on genetic manipulation but that’s pretty much it.

Fucking brutal, but holds up extremely well. Character writing is well observed and sharp, recurring motifs of speech chart changing relationships. Humor and wit are peppered throughout, but the book never feels like it's trying to be too clever or undercut its tone. Hell of a thing to read in 2021
