This book is so far outside of my wheelhouse I never would have imagined reading it, which is why I picked it for Book of the Month Club. But oh my god, it satisfies every guilty-pleasure gossipy bone in my body with the added bonus of not having anything to do with the drama personally.

I first listened to this audio book but this time around I read the hard copy. Definitely picked up more this time. As always, I‘m a sucker for worldbuilding and this has it in droves. From largely organic world-ships to cephalopod guns (🤩) to a female-only society with no mention of any other sex, it‘s just totally fascinating and easy to get lost in.

I LOVED the worldbuilding, but holy Gary Stu, Batman. Paul is THE best and MOST special person to EVER exist. I can‘t figure out how I feel about women in this one. Jessica is the most compelling character in the book, period, but every other woman is just a commodity, even Jessica initially. For Chani, they wave a wand and POOF, she‘s with Paul, they have a child, and wait, what? I feel like the author tried to be pro-woman but missed the mark.

This was a pretty fun book but even still, ended up being WAY better than I thought. It‘s the kind of book that, if I ever have a daughter, I‘ll change the heroine‘s name to hers when I read it to her. Although I‘ll probably wait until she gets a little older since it does get a little dark toward the end. Still, a fantastic read.

I liked it. The characters were solid (LOVE me some Lila), worldbuilding was good. But it was a good stand-alone book which isn‘t the best for the first in a series. I don‘t feel the burning need to read the others. That said, I might eventually. Just not going to make a 10 pm run to my local bookstore to get the next one.

My “Bedside TBR.” The Outlander books have a permanent place since they‘re the best friend I can be away from for months and then pick up right where I left off. But all of my new books go to the table until they‘re read and shelved. It‘s worked pretty well ever since I‘ve made it an actual *system*

Trying to broaden my reading horizons with some nonfiction. I‘m noticing a pattern...

Oh god, that ending tho! I love and hate cliffhangers, but I‘ll definitely be reading the next one, so I guess it did it‘s job. The politics were a little difficult to latch onto, but the book is long enough that an understanding developed fairly organically. It has the kind of ending that rips you apart and leaves you hanging but ohgodiwantmoregimme

WilliamMorrowBooks I know! We are on tenterhooks for the next book too. 2y

I‘m a fan. I enjoy solid world building and exploring interesting concepts. The narrator was a good way for the reader to experience all the new ideas introduced, but he didn‘t necessarily feel like his own fleshed out, intriguing character. Kinda like he takes the place of the reader‘s own fancy new CDF body, which is cool in some ways, and just somewhat flat in others. Still would definitely recommend though.
