Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky (audiobook)

Children of Time - Adrian Tchaikovsky, Mel Hudson

Narrator: Mel Hudson

 

All the stars. This was a reread by audio and I honestly had just as much fun the second time around, and I quite liked the narrator.

 

In a far-flung future, Adrian Tchaikovsky explores humanity, empathy, and how to overcome your species's past. It's awesome. And he makes you empathize with the spiders. That's quite an achievement. Spiders make awesome alien species, by the way.

 

I'm counting this for square 12 Saturnalia: read any work of science fiction that takes place in space. Half the book takes place on board a cryogenic space ship.
