Sea of TranquilitySea of Tranquility by Emily St. John Mandel
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wasn't quite sure whether I would like this novel. I've had some iffy experiences with LitSF in the past and if I'm to be entirely honest, I wasn't blown away by Station Eleven.

I did actually enjoy this one, however, and I'm rather surprised.

First of all, I'm a sucker for "universe as a simulation" stories. Having themes of death -- in tranquility -- was pretty cool when it comes right down to the lunar colonies.

All told, after I managed my expectations a bit, the novel was rather smooth. The best parts were the obvious strange bits that I will not spoil here. The resolution was solid.
