I'm finding it difficult to summarize this book without dishonest praise or undeserved criticism. The truth is the story at the heart of the novel is a simple one: a whodunit in space, and a surprisin

...

gly blinkered story of shunning the Other. The structure of it reminded me of Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon, with its rambling passages and none-too-subtle "extracts", which came across to me as the real reason the book existed -- an excuse to world-build.

While there were some wonderfully poetic turns of phrase, and a lot of fascinating assertions on the future of gender and sexuality, the predominance of the novel came off as naval-gazing.

At first, very interesting and read through all of the lists and "comments". Plot was there, and was advanced fairly well. Towards the last third of the book , I felt I wanted more of the story and less comment. The comments seemed to be less tied into plot line and more "preachy" as though the author couldn't decide how tell the story through the characters. This is one of those "sticks with you" types of books, exploring some fascinating human concepts of possibilities. And no, it was not boring, could have tightened up a bit, though.
