Love this book. It's original, funny, moving, and has a really cool science hook.

Got this due to all the people here saying good things about it. Pleasantly surprised that it came out free for me because of a digital credit that I didn't even remember existed.

Many people like this book (and it's likely you will if you enjoy science fiction). However, I really didn't like it.

In contrast (to provide some suggestions of recent science fiction I enjoyed), I found the Dennis E. Taylor Bobiverse series to be much better.

Here is my very general and very short review. I gave the book 2.5/5.

I had high expectations of the book based on reviews. The book met none of my expectations. The concept of the book is creative but the execution is mediocre at best. Part of the problem is the author jarringly switches between the writing styles of telling a story and narrator comments as if the book is a documentary. That could work if the book was written as a 'history' with editorial or narrator commentary but it isn't.

The book also might be thought-provoking if you don't read historical nonfiction but it comes across as a mostly tedious rehash of historical themes. Many books do that but I didn't think the author did it in a compelling or interesting way. I also never cared for any of the characters, which is rare for me. I really can't recommend the book.

I highly enjoyed this book. I found myself wanting to get through a few sections that felt a bit slow-paced, but felt the plot and concepts very engaging. I did not find the transitions particularly jarring. Would recommend even at list price.
