My heart hurts all over because of this book. It's seriously so intricate and creative, a definite sci-fi standout that is unlike any other story I've read. I actually tried to read it at the end of 2019 and ended up putting it down after like 8 pages, mostly because it DOES require a decent amount of attention that I just didn't have at the time. But a friend encouraged me to try it again, and I'm SO FREAKIN GLAD I did (thank you a million times, Chris!). There is a brief period of getting into the format of the book and finding the pacing, but after that the book becomes a surprisingly immersive, intimate, and beguiling story that refuses to succumb to stereotype or predictability. And holy cow, the WRITING! It's borderline pretentious, but honestly I love that in a book, and it is just so so SO beautiful and full of emotion.

If you don't like flowery, complicated writing or settings that bounce around from world to world, then this probably isn't the book for you. I can see why certain readers wouldn't click with the writing style or plot (think Dickens writing crafty, flirty sci-fi) but for me personally it ended up hitting every mark. I can't wait to reread it! ( )

It took me longer than I expected to get into this (no reader, you're not wrong, the prose is sometimes overwrought) but then I did and I was overawed. Thanks for making me cry. ( )

I don't know what I just read but it was gay and beautiful and that's really all I care about. ( )

This strange sci-fi novel is the story of two deep-cover female political operatives playing their part in an ever-changing past and present in a battle over control of the future. Blue is from a back-to-nature, hippieish Shangri-La with a hive consciousness; Red is from some technological neverland – and both are bent on cultural genocide despite that they fall in love. Their relationship commences when Blue leaves a letter in the ashes of a dying world, and Red finds it. It begins with the strange instruction to “burn before reading.” They fall in love letter by letter, word by word, and cross paths but don’t meet in a variety of historical contexts: in Stalingrad (amid Nazi zombies), Atlantis, London, ancient ruins. It’s a time-travel novel, interestingly co-authored by a man and a woman, although most of the important characters in this book are women. The ultimately desire to find a way to be together. I was largely confused throughout the book, and I don’t particularly care of this type of speculative fiction, so but for the beautiful writing, the book was not my cup of tea. It was a short book that took me a long time to read, and it defies any meaningful description I can conjure. ( )

This was such a nice read. I got to appreciate two writers, two different prose styles and I'm super grateful. This is super short, however it's so beautifully written that I just took my time to enjoy each letter. Red and Blue will be in my heart for a long time and their story is one to remember.

My only 'negative' point is that it took me forever to understand the world building. And to be honest, I'm not sure I do! ( )

Part epistolary romance, part mind-blowing science fiction adventure, this dazzling story unfolds bit by bit, revealing layers of meaning as it plays with cause and effect, wildly imaginative technologies, and increasingly intricate wordplay.

(Adventure works in any strand—it calls to those who care more for living than for their lives.)
Viewed from sufficient height, all problems are simple. All knots can be untied with a few deaths, or ten thousand.
I am yours in other ways as well: yours as I watch the world for your signs, apophenic as a haruspex; yours as I debate methods, motives, chances of delivery; yours as I review your words by their sequence, their sound, smell, taste, taking care no one memory of them becomes too worn.
I want to meet you in every place I ever loved.
