Dark Eden by Chris Beckett

This book wasn’t bad, maybe I just read it at the wrong time. There were bits that were definitely interesting but other parts, I wouldn’t say I was bored, but I just didn’t care. The premise of the book was intriguing; what would a prototype society be like from a modern single woman and man? The evolution of language and changes to a stagnating society, and the effects of those changes, were solid building blocks but I felt the story lacked. I felt I’d read similar before. The characters were ok, a bit stereotypical but I related somewhat.

Perhaps one day I’ll revisit this and then understand why it won awards but at the moment it just didn’t do it for me.

Probably more 2.5 stars but rounded up to 3 out of 5.
