This was a good read about one of my favorite fictional person. It‘s interesting seeing her as a teenage girl. I‘m very curious to see what happens in the next two books. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Very dark. Debatable if I "liked" it, but well written and very thought-provoking.

I really enjoyed this one. The descriptions of the tech and time dilation were fun. I honestly liked Will for the most part despite his personal hang ups on a few things. I appreciate the fact that the violence/war wasn‘t glorified. The changes Earth went through over the course of the story were fascinating. There were a few things I rolled my eyes at, but they‘re mostly products of the time the book and author come from.

MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm I saw the ending coming about halfway through. The Taurans seemed too inept to be an actual threat. But the clones were a surprise. I was extremely pleased with the happy ending for Will but the implication that people could just switch between hetero and homosexual when it suited society‘s needs definitely got on my nerves. 15h
RamsFan1963 @MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm Yeah I found the idea that an entire culture would turn from hetero a little too far fetched to be realistic 11h
MegaWhoppingCosmicBookwyrm @RamsFan1963 I can imagine an entire race changing how they view sexuality. For me it was more the fact that the conditioning to turn it on or off was viewed so casually. As if it‘s just a switch you can toggle and not suffer major mental ramifications for. It reminded me of one of my favorite Star Trek TNG episodes, The Outcast. The crew encounter an androgynous alien race that think gender expression is a mental defect. It‘s such a sad episode. 10h

This book is an interesting look at what it might be like to be in an abusive relationship. It explores the nuance of seeming to be property. It also explores consent. This book will make you squirm, and it should. I only give this two stars because it reads like a first draft, rather than a completed product. If you are a fan of stepford wives or pleasantville, you will know what you're in for.

I read Maxwell's other book, Ocean's Echo first and it was a five star for me. This is more of a 4, a very solid debut. Their ability to create vivid interesting characters is very evident in this book but the world building is a little muddier, the plotting a little weaker. Still a very enjoyable read and it was nice to see how much of an improvement they had btw the two standalone books. Still a pick, but also go read Ocean's Echo.
