Review: This was a quick but interesting read. I requested it on NetGalley because it was categorized a science fiction and the description was intriguing. After reading it, I don’t know that I’d call it science fiction – it’s almost more of a commentary on philosophy and metaphysics. There were moments where I found myself trying to sort out if it was fiction or non-fiction just due to the narrative which is, I think, a testament to the way the author was able to give us a complete and distinct character using first-person storytelling.
Overall, this book made me think and raised some interesting questions, but I’m someone who enjoys thinking about the nature of existence. But it didn’t deliver what I expected and I think it has a limited audience that would truly enjoy it. And I don’t recommend picking it up if you’re expecting a good science fiction tale.
