STAR RATINGS GUIDE
When it comes to world building, John Scalzi does not skimp on the detail. And what a fascinating reality this is. with the effects of a pandemic splitting society into those who must live through technology and those who carry on as before.
As a fan of both dystopian and pandemic fiction, I always find it disappointing when these are the secondary aspects of a story. The imagined world, in this case, is relevant, but mostly just a setting for a conspiracy thriller. And it's a well crafted one with lots of twists and turns and a satisfying conclusion. Just not my usual thing.
There's also an issue with the overuse of "he said" and "she said" in what is otherwise well written.
