What have I read this week?
Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky
This is a science fiction novel about a world terraformed by humans just before the human race falls into civil war. Several sapient or semi-sapient species develop on the planet, and the book follows the spiders as they develop intelligence. I enjoyed this; it really felt like I was exploring an alien point of view. And I liked the ending: it was not at all what I was expecting.
