Just read the first issue of this and while I see the draw that it has, it is just not for me. Right now.

I do see the quality and the reason why people are saying it is very good, it is very good. Hell, it's great. but while I enjoyed it, especially the big woman character whose name I have now forgotten I am also just reading too many other books, especially too many other sci-fi books to climb on board another.

Or is it the feminism aspect that pulls me out of the book? I would hate to think so, but I have to admit that while this book is, again, really good, there IS something here that is just not clicking for me.

I hope Dave still gets this, I think I would like to revisit this title after a few, but for right now I am setting it aside. That said, if you want a good sci-fi woman's prison story, you may want to check this out. It is kinda like 100 bullets meets Orange is the New Black. And that is kinda F'n cool.

\\\\\\\"I do not have OCD. I know. I\\\\\\\'ve checked. Three or four hundred times and I definitely don\\\\\\\'t. I stopped myself from catching it by washing my hands an even number of times\\\\\\\"<br />David Mitchell
