In the City, Andrei Voronin is one of many volunteers plucked out of time to participate in the Experiment, guided by enigmatic mentors. Initially a devoted communist, Andrei faces challenges to his ideology as forces rise and fall within the City. What gives life meaning when your belief system crumbles? What is the true nature of the Experiment? Female characters are at best 2D stereotypes, but the philosophical concept makes it worth reading.
I finally finished it!! I feel like I was reading it for years. That was a lot, and could have easily been broken up into two novels. I have lots of thoughts, but not enough space on here to do it. In brief, it was good, dark, violent, complicated, not very stressful, and long. Whew.
