Más 3,5 que 3 a secas.

En general me ha gustado, tiene ideas y conceptos muy interesantes que aunque ya vistos en infinidad de contenido de ciencia ficción, consigue dotarlos de un algo diferente. No llega al nivel de sus referentes pero mantiene muy bien el tipo.

Quizá le cuesta un poco arrancar, no tanto por el ritmo sino quizá por el estilo de escritura o por la personalidad de la protagonista. Admito que al principio me costaba acabar de conectar y tenia la sensación de que estaba más “all over the place” que más avanzado el libro. Aún así, pasado el primer tercio, ya es todo disfrute.

Creo que consigue crear algo diferente sin intentar disimular sus referentes y que puede dar mucho juego en futuras entregas, un inicio solido aunque no excelente. Deja con ganas de leer más, y eso es más que suficiente.

I love books that have the linguist/alien contact trope. There's not a bunch, but I snatch up every one I can find. This book is fantastic and fun.

The first act was a bit slow, but it was a pretty easy read overall. Not much to complain about, but not much that excited me either. It was fun to learn about how the Fremda group worked and there were some tender moments that I liked, but overall it didn't stick out to me.

This book was very easy to read, I think I blew through the first half in the first few days, and then took my time with the rest of it, lmao.

I'm a big fan of Lindsay's Video Essays, and her critiques of film are fantastic. I don't think I've ever enjoyed Guardians of The Galaxy Vol. 2 as much as I enjoyed hearing her praise it, LOL.

But this book! You can really feel the enthusiasm she has for these different sci-fi cultures and worlds, and as a person with ADHD, this book read like a movie to me.

I'm not to great at giving reviews of books, but I DID enjoy it, and I DID see the hard work, and it was never really boring. But I will DEFINITELY return to this, especially when the next book in the series comes out.
Also, LONG LIVE & !
