I was disappointed because while the concepts introduced had a lot of good potential for use in a science fiction story, the writing got in the way. Characters seem mostly skin deep. Some of the main characters have more described about how they feel and what drives them, but then the writing from scene to scene feels a little jarring. The character thinks about feelings of sadness or remorse or concern, and then in the very next scene is bantering about something in a light hearted way or thinking internally about trivial things. All emotions feel skin deep and transitory. I feel like the character is *telling* me about things that happened to someone else, vs. that feeling of truly being immersed in a real person's *life* as it unfolds. The difference between someone describing a painting and actually seeing a painting.
Anyway, I will likely try the 2nd story in the series just to see if it's a little more engaging, but this one left me a little disappointed.
