Solid back story of how Amos came to be the man he is, along with how he came to be hiding out in the “expanse.” Solid, but i was hoping for a bit more wordspace and time to develop it a bit further, not just a novella.
I’ve always admired Nancy Kress’ columns in Writer’s Digest. This is the first book of hers I’ve read.
And it’s really, really good! Set in the future where gene modification allows a select group of people not to need sleep, they find that they also become super intelligent and never age.
Society struggles to accommodate this new “species” and conflict ensues.
Good read! Part of a trilogy, so I’m looking forward to the next two.
Character-driven, YA Sci-Fi novel that not only hits all the right notes, but arranges them in perfect harmony.
