This book is fundamentally an exploration of what it might mean to be human, if the "pointless, arbitrary restrictions" of the ordinary human condition were loosened or removed.

It's also about how beings who are profoundly different from each other might still communicate in a meaningful way.

There's also a great deal of cosmology and physics in the novel. Its exposition isn't the greatest - it really feels like infodumps and some diagrams would help - but it's essential to the shape of the novel: because once you remove all the ordinary restrictions of the human condition, what's left? The restrictions imposed by the physics of the universe(s), that's what.

This is science fiction by the strongest definition of the genre: the science is an essential component of the story that it tells. I don't see novels like this very often anymore.

At the end of the book, the breadth of the canvas had become the entire age of the universe, & I lost interest as I usually do when that happens. But there were a lot of good ideas, or really well expressed ideas, throughout - I did much more (kindle) highlighting on this book than I usually do.

I find Greg Egan to be uneven to my tastes, but this one's a goodie. ( )

I don't recommend reading a foreign language edition of this book. The first chapter was extremely difficult to understand in German. Probably best to read this in English. ( )

Particle physics and multi-dimensional maths aren't what I'm looking for in my science fiction, and I felt very lost a bunch of times. But even then, it still managed to tell a fine story, once I got used to the idea that every other chapter would go way over my head, and all I could hope for was to get the general idea and what it meant for the overall quest the characters were on.

Love this one. lots of interesting aliens. A really cool description of what 5 dimensions looks like, even though I still didn't get my head around it. But gravity in 5 dimensions is really cool too. ( )

Lots of great ideas in this book: humanity divided between "fleshers" and digital humans; the implications of individual autonomy in virtual reality; "parallelizing" space exploration. But the lack of minimally relatable characters makes it hard to give a damn about the plot. Reading Diaspora feels a bit like reading non-fiction: some guy discussing possible futures, possible technologies. It's ok, but it doesn't hook you. ( )
