The book starts a little slowly, mostly because the reader is being introduced to a new America.  After that the book really picks up.  Th style of writing is wonderful, if a bit hard to follow sometimes.  I was not a fan of the authors earlier works so I went into this book with no expectations.  Just a very good read.

The story lingers, giving one's mind a lot to think about. A not too distant future and A main character revealed only in how she is imagined by those who knew her once and have heard of her adventures makes for strangely compelling reading. I finished much too quickly.

On Such a Full Sea is mostly commentary by a narrator with dialogue taking up less than half the book. It is primarily a philosophical/sociological meditation. The plot is okay but far from the popular SiFi adventure story. If this type of book interests you--good; if you like space operas or other action dories, you may not like it.

Very slow from start to finish.

I'm one of those people who finds it difficult to slow down when I take a vacation. A similar situation occurs each evening when I get home from work and pick up Lee 's novel. Once I have slowed enough, the prose and storyline act upon me and I find much of the violence and horror discussed lost of its edge. It's less a novel than a prayer.

And as confusing. Two stars for a sentence that caught my eye. We are all from somewhere else but it is gone and no longer there.
