Really interesting ideas, really clumsily communicated
10 October 2019
The author has a had a brilliant series of thought-questions: what is the aliens were plants? How would communication work when surivival is in play?
But infuriatingly the book is constructed as a series of novellas, and each is drawn together with a deus-ex resolution. The charaters are frustratingly flimsy, the plot aimlessly wanders from fun thought-question to thought-question.
Sadly cannot recommend - I've not yet been able to finish it.
