An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.

Dust of Eden

Dust of Eden - Mariko Nagai

Most of this book felt like prose broken up to look like poetry. I like that some of the letters and essays were presented as prose. Nick's letters were a nice touch, giving the author the ability to show what was happening outside camp as the war went on. The book reminded me a lot of the show Allegiance.

 

I enjoyed most of it except when Mina compares the camps to Africa. Nagai could have come up with another comparison that doesn't reinforce the stereotype that Africa is a wholly primitive place.
