The writing is beautiful...but the main character didn't feel "real" to me. Sorry, but I don't buy a protagonist who's even remotely interested in a secondary love interest after being abused by a pimp (space or otherwise). Johnny also felt a bit too much like a cliched rake and Rain's encounters with him felt melodramatic. I half expected him to curl a mustache and tie Rain to whatever the space equivalent of railroad tracks are. Also, the younger brother didn't feel like anything more than a plot device - a convenient tool for getting Rain into space.Again, beautiful writing. A few truly poignant moments. Definitely a hard subject to tackle. The world is vivid and wonderfully described. But I don't like Rain enough to care about her...especially when her actions don't seem to match up with her character.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
