Greg Egan
Zendegi Cover




Aside from the science, Egan shows himself a keen observer of humanity. Zendegi is also a book about bias, and Egan is, via Martin Seymour, an honest, soul searching commentator on these matters, with a sensibility for diversity and bigotry seeped in respect for what it means to be human, never pointing fingers, but not flinching away from judgement either. Even though I only mention it at the very end of this review, this bias isn't some trivial matter: it is at the heart of the entire narrative.

Definitely recommended for Egan fans, and because it is very accessible without being superficial, it's also recommended as an introduction to his work.
