The author captures the atmosphere and the people so realistically you fail to notice this is not a sci fi in the traditional sense, no guns, explosions, flesh eating aliens... I found myself making notes on my Nook, something I rarely do because of clumsy fingers, to highlight particular insightful passages. I recommend this to anyone given to thoughtful reflection, irrespective of genre.
I like it. It is very old world meets new and future.
