didn't finish- hardly held my attention. Characters were wimpish.

A very enjoyable book. Similar to some of Charles' Stross stuff - light post humanism, but set during scarcity. Not quite as mind-bending, and the writing style is a little more accessible.

(Ms. Nagata, if you're reading this, this book REALLY needs a sequel)
