Exceeded my expectations. Nicely done narration with a good balance between character differentiation and annoying voices :).
The story itself is outstanding. Several innovative twists on the "generation ship" concept.

Almost gave up on this one at first, mainly due to the narration which is extremely slow (run at 1.5x or even 2x).
The book is very character driven, and though it's a generation ship novel I wouldn't characterize it as 'hard' sci-if as much as I would say that it's not really about the science. The book runs with the concept of a generation ship, and sticks to it without really going into the technicalities of how it could work, instead using the confines of the ship to tell a sort of bottle episode.
I really came to enjoy the book about 1/3rd of the way through, and certainly from there till the end.
If you like generation ship novels, this one is certainly worth the read, and for anyone interested in post-humanism I think this provides an interesting take.
I loved the sound of this book. the idea got my imagination going wild. sadly, this book has a very slow moving plot, led by an highly inactive protagonist who moans and feels a hard done by. The obvious questions are dragged out way too long, therefore making it feel very unrealistic. The characters don't have unique voices. Perhaps I feel this way since I finished The Stand by Steven King recently and it has exceptional character voice.
