I feel like “#Selfcare” is like an adult, queer, futuristic cousin of “Artemis Fowl” and I’m so here for it! The blend of magic fae, driven yet lovable characters, and scheming against Big Business just ticks some unexpected marks for me and I think Newitz has crafted something very special here. I’d LOVE to see more of this world!

There are a whole lot of ideas in this book -- about what it takes to protect an ecosystem, about who gets to be a person, about the assumptions we tend to make about language and intelligence, about how to structure a society, about collective decision-making, about what is and isn't considered a reasonable plan of action. I really liked the worldbuilding, with the various people (only some of whom were human or even biological), the ERT, the sensor networks... and the subversion of modern assumptions about biological gender, sexuality, and reproduction. Also the stuff about language and intelligence, and what kind of society would limit people's communication ability just to lock them into a particular kind of work.

Unfortunately I found the giant time jumps pretty jarring. Just when I'd get really invested in a set of characters, we're hundreds of years in the future and most of them aren't around anymore. I do like that we got to see the long-term consequences of some of the decisions that were made. But I feel like we broke away from Destry's story, or Misha's, while there was still a lot left to tell. Also, the ending felt a bit rushed -- as soon as some old corporate secrets came out, things were basically solved, and also this magically caused a different corporation to generously reverse gentrification?

That said, there's still a lot I liked here. The sentient flying trains! The Tongue Forks! The way Chef subverted her language limiter by moving to Tooth! Everything about Spider City!

Interesting world-building and especially effective storytelling from a robot's POV. But some confusing back-and-forth in the story's timeline prevent me giving this 4 stars.
