The characters are interesting, but the development is sketchy; the idea of a world where bio-engineering has gone wild is both fascinating and frightening. The story is told in a series of flashbacks; that may have something to do with the jumpy feeling of the book. It is read very well, and I was not ready for the ending when it came.
This was a good read; I like short stories, and these were very evocative. I especially liked the connected short stories. The narrators all did an excellent job. The subject matter is intriguing; relationships mostly, and poignant and funny at the same time.
