Kameron Hurley - The Stars are Legion

Review.

Scifi with a dash of body horror, and yet another story that is hard to describe. In some far away future humanity is female only, spread over a number of ships (?) where everything is alive and build using the same basic components (variations on human genetics?).


Cannibalism

The two main characters have hatched a plan to escape (?) the cluster of spaceships (who are not spaceships but living beings of a sort).

Something like that. Some additional specs: every woman grows spare parts in their womb (?), cannibalism is okay-ish... and around thirty percent of the book reads like Journey to the Center of the Earth, but then in reverse.

Like I said, hard to describe.


Narrator

Perfect match for the somewhat weird content, tough and never freaked out.


Verdict

Definitely an interesting read, though the concept might give the reader some queasy feelings.
