Doing multiple first-person narrators can be tricky in terms of making each voice distinct from each other, but the three protagonists are all so different that every new chapter felt refreshing as you checked in on another character. First Sister, Lito, and Hiro are bound to make an impact on you, they certainly did for me.
The pacing was just a touch slow to start, but things really kick into high gear and you’ll be flying through the story very quickly. Ultimately, your appreciation for The First Sister will live or die with how you feel about the protagonists. I think each character was intentionally written to come off as slightly unlikable at the start, but each of them really starts to blossom over time and I grew a loving respect for all three by the end.
I found the worldbuilding to be unique and interesting to learn about, but never too demanding of the reader’s attention. If you need a full history of the solar system to understand how these cultures advanced so differently from one another, you won’t get all of the answers you might want. But what’s provided is satisfying and intriguing. The technology introduced in the story created some neat thought experiments for me and it was fun to learn more about how the tech worked as the story went on.
The last thing I’ll touch in is representation. This book has a lot of great things to say about people of different cultures and ethnicities. Cultural difference and dehumanization are both very important themes to the story and everything is handled very well.
Overall, The First Sister was an awesome read. I’m very excited to see what Linden does next. Also, The First Sister would make an awesome movie/show. Fingers crossed!
