What an interesting read. I’m so glad I finished it. I had a character moment that I .. just.. umfphforthesakeofallthingsgoodstopingsostupid .. but I let it pass and really really glad I let it go. lol.
It was solid, well thought out; the ingenuity and scale of growth in time and literal evolution is enough, really. You simply have to marvel at a mind that wants to trip the light fandango with uplifting arachnids–arthropods and a multithousand-year-old journey of homo sapiens. You know, what could go wrong?
I had a few character issues which were like hangnails to me due to my usual issue of not-being-me-syndrome. So that can’t take away from what is a really good glance at humanity and all its dirty sordid cyclical juvenile-ism.
For a new take, a few lessons in biology, otherwise a really easy to digest science fiction read (despite it’s huge scope) I think you’ll enjoy it. 🙂
