The world is absolutely beautiful and I'd love to read more about it, but it's presented in such a bad way. The story is a chore to follow. The real problems of an anarchist society are presented only 90% in. Despite the main character making two very important decisions on the course of a book, it doesn't feel like he had any choice, or there was any real tension. It just kind of happened.
@ckeen the problems were there from the start, but we got nothing but very subtle nudges. Only at around 90-95% we understand what could go wrong to the full extent.
