Story: This is a very unique story. I was very impressed with it. I can’t say it was a completely grab you into the story and sucks you in. There were times I had to rewind the audiobook because I kind of zoned out. The idea behind it though was pretty amazing. I especially loved the beings that had their own personality. I also loved the fact that it didn’t sugarcoat things. There was prejudice and hateful mindsets that caused violent tendencies.
Characters: I really loved all of the Ais. Especially as their personality formed. Sadly, it’s been a while since I read the book so I don’t remember their or the humans’ names. I do remember that one of the AI beings identified as they/them and one identified as she/her. I loved that tidbit!
Critiques: It could use a polish. There are parts where it’s really dry and boring.
Narration: I can’t complain. I can’t remember anything that stands out to me, so I can’t give a glowing recommendation. However, I also can’t think of any complaints. I feel like that’s a good sign.
Final Thoughts: I really loved the fact that this book addressed serious topics without sugar coating. I loved the gender representations. I really loved how unique the story was overall. I just wish it wasn’t so dry and technical in most parts. I get the need for it.
