If you loved Dune and Frank Herbert's writing style, then this is for you. Excellent read.

I read classic sci-fi; Heinlein, Asimov, Bradbury, etc. I selected this book, along with a few others, because it sounded interesting. I don't know the author.
It was a great read. I enjoyed the complexity of it. Enough tech and history to keep it believable, not enough to interfere with the storyline. The characters were well written:the universe he created was well thought out and intriguing. I came back to grab the other short stories, and enjoyed those as well. Though, by the writing style, I'm betting they came first.
I'll reread this as the new ones come out. Not many distracting grammatical (or plot) errors, pretty incredible work for a first novel. I've dumped 9/10ths of the sci-fi works I've downloaded after grimacing through the first painful chapters. This one I'll keep.

Review by: Ivan Vučica on March 31, 2010 :
A most excellent story about a society hurt by genetic modifications, which now purifies any non-conforms. Written in a nice, easily readable way, this book immerses you in a world very different from our own, yet recognizable. Quite interesting, and I'd compare it to Asimov's opus without feeling I'm over-exaggerating.

I loved it.
