Polystom – Adam Roberts – 18.05.20

I have read quite a few of Adam Roberts books and some I absolutely love and others I am a bit meh with, this one sadly fell into the later category for me. It’s somewhat confusing working out if it’s set in our distant future, or in an alternate reality, and while the end of the book sheds some light on what’s going on, still a lot is left to the reader to decide. I found the main character really unpleasant, and the general thinking of society to be uncomfortable, and although with hindsight I can see that this it to illustrate that a completely different society would feel odd and not right to our sensibilities still it made me tempted to give up on the book. I’m glad I didn’t give up because the ending what kind of interesting, but I still didn’t love it.
