There's honest, heart-rending emotion here, but there's also inconsistency and awkward leaps in storytelling.

The concept is interesting, but the writing choppy and the multiple character viewpoints offer little in the way of additional insight, and instead add confusion.

This book is wonderful and scary at the same time. It shows where society could go if technology continues to rapidly escalate while dividing people economically without regard for their humanity.

At the same time, the author does an amazing job of telling several intertwined, appealing love stories in this complex setting. I highly recommend this novel, it's one of the best I've read in quite awhile.
