Even though I wasn't intrigued with the story to read this book it was a great review. It was detailed and descriptive which helped me make an informed choice on reading it or not. Thank you.

Thank you for your lovely review! The premise is interesting, and it seems that the author has put in effort to seamlessly weave multiple issues together without under-developing any single one.

I don't really like science fiction but the action and idears that comes alive to the reader makes it enticing . Good review.

The plot is quite interesting: fear,ignorance, oppression and even REVOLT
I wonder how all these are possible--
" a world without sun nor stars"

Yours sincerely,

Good review but it is mainly a summary. Don't see the likes and dislikes. However, it made me want to read the book. Seems like a good sci-fi story.

I see your point. :D Because this novel's plot is so involved, I opted for a three-paragraph summary, though it still only brushes the surface of the story.

My reviews here tend to be more objective observations and pros/cons structured than likes/dislikes, since these reviews are more official than personal, for me. I didn't find much in the way of cons with this book, besides the imprecise word usage I noted in the review. I'd say the rest of the review, regarding the book's style, progression, layering, etc. are the pros.

Now, my personal reviews, on my blog and such, are a lot more about likes/dislikes, what I dig and what I don't dig--when I can be less "official." :techie-studyingbrown:

If you do read the book, I hope you enjoy it!

The book is a fiction of science. A book of many scenes, romance, bravery and humour. Thanks for that review.
