This confidence lends itself to some of the most inventive concepts and imagery I've read about in sci-fi for a while. Not all of the ideas are necessarily new, but they're all used creatively and sometimes in ways that managed to draw an emotional reaction from me. What makes this novel truly memorable though is its framing device. Each chapter is presented as a file being written up and sent as a report between characters in-universe, and this is used to add some wonderful elements of meta humour. This is a very witty book that managed to draw more than a handful of out-loud laughs.
The story takes a little while to get going and the sheer amount of characters introduced in the opening chapters can be slightly overwhelming at first, but the personalities of the main cast are so distinct and the plot flows so well after the opening that I was soon hooked. Overall, I highly recommend Death and Doubling Cubes. It was a fast and easy read that left me wanting to spend more time in this setting.
