This book didn't knock my socks off, but I did enjoy it. I think the first book was my favourite. I did like Flora and the secondary characters. And, it is one of those books that get you thinking about the world and possible futures. The trilogy as a whole definitely touches on a lot of subjects. So, ultimately I am happy I read it, and I do recommend it, but not something I consider a favourite read ever. I listened to the audio & liked it.
