Legacy Code by Autumn Kalquist
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is an extremely well-written book--exactly the kind of book I frequently look for. I enjoyed the audio version immensely. The narrator was a very talented woman with an English accent. The world had a very dark and gritty atmosphere, with just a hint of a Battlestar Galactica vibe--and though it has one story element in common with BSG (a fleet of ships humans call home while they search for a new world), the protagonist herself and main plot couldn't be further from that.
The protagonist's motivations and experiences rang true to me. This book has a feeling of realism (in a world built quite different from ours) that allows you to immerse yourself. I tore through it in just a few days, eager to find out what happened. The ending was a complete surprise to me and shocking. I was warned it was controversial, but I didn't think so. I thought the author was brave, but I won't say any more than that for fear of spoiling it for anyone else.
Without a doubt I will be reading more by Autumn Kalquist--a very talented new SF author.
