A review by alibrareads
Central Station by Lavie Tidhar


If you enjoy stories that are mostly world building and slice of life you’ll probably enjoy this. Perhaps this book has plot in a way I am not familiar with, but it was a little... Boring.

The future depicted here was definitely cool to imagine and read about. Familiar enough but with lots of unfamiliar technology. I’d say a future like this is not unreasonable at all, with so many people already attached to their cell phones in a primitive form of Conversation.

The whole book was an exercise in what-ifs. What risks and benefits could come from artificial intelligence? Then again, isn’t most sci-fi just an exercise in what-ifs?

I thought it was interesting, but it wasn’t exciting enough for my tastes.
