There are so many intensely gripping moments that made me unable to put the book down, and if I weren’t already a vegetarian, I would be now!
Also, the main character is a woman who is in love with another woman. I’m always all for books with queer representation. And what's especially great is that their genders have nothing to do with why their love is forbidden.
The main reason I’m giving this 4 stars and not 5 is because I wanted more of an explanation of the technology in the story, because the technology of this world is so much more advanced than anything else I’ve read, that it didn’t add as much to the story as I had hoped.
My favorite book, Oryx and Crake, has a lot of similar themes to this, but the reason Oryx and Crake has such a profound impact is because though the technology is advanced, the future it depicts still looks like the world as we know it, so we don’t know if it’s that far away or just around the corner.
That’s what I had hoped to get from this book, but the advanced names for things like family members and ages, and the fact that everyone speaks directly to each other’s minds and people can get pregnant through the right mental contact with others didn’t add much to the story.
Overall, this is a great book with profound themes that I truly hope everyone reads.
