I was so excited to finally read it, because everyone was talking about it and everyone seems to like it. And... I wanted to love it to. I had such a hard time getting into it. The format of, whilst interesting is also really distracting. After reading about the third of it, I still had no idea what is it about. It was a struggle to finish it. It didn't really pull me in, but I can still appreciate the uniqueness.
It gets a bit better after that, however it was still struggle to see what the book was really about.
It is set in future in space, where two corporation are at war for one planet. Few of the people on it can evacuate, many lives lost.
There was diary entries, ship specifics, interviews, chat room intertwined. I think I would love the story if it was more... homogeneous.
Not a book for me.
