Date Started: April 15, 2011. 4 AM. Really bad start. I found the writing distasteful, and I couldn’t really understand the scientific meanderings. And these are necessary in a novel set in the future. I carried on although I couldn’t really be bothered to backtrack. There should be something good in this if people are hailing this is a monumental piece of dystopian work. Or maybe it is just overrated?
