Review: The Best of All Possible Worlds


The Best of All Possible Worlds
The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord

My rating: 4 of 5 stars



Wanted to like it better than I did. The exploration of the various communities reminded me of Hari Seldons exploration of Trantor in Prelude to Foundation. I did like the way they played out the romance aspect of the story. It was appropriate.


EDIT
A dear friend of mine is dealing with the impending loss of a favoured family member. In light of my inability to console, comfort or compensate, I feel I should revise my rating of this book. The timing, and the fact that if I'm honest with myself I have far too much in common with Dllenahkh, and in familiarizing myself with the origin of the title of the book.

So in that sense, that it was able to come back on me, within 72hrs of finishing it - somewhat grudgingly, suffering through syrupy romance with a cringe to get through the final third of it - and punch me in the feels places. I'll award it a nod and another star.


EDIT 2
Oh, and I just finished Bioshock Infinite - which could almost be considered a gamification of the Leibniz Essays on the Goodness of God, the Freedom of Man and the Origin of Evil
