It's literature. It's fiction but it's not genre fiction and it's not about undersea telegraph cables, so you'd think I wouldn't like it. Oh, there's a brief nod to the history of electronics with the SPOILER REDACTED, but that's definitely not what you're going to read this book for. It's about human relationships and feelings and finding meaning in life, so you'd definitely think I wouldn't like it. But I liked it. There's a setting which is pretty SPOILER REDACTED.
