Book Review: Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Children of Time by Adrian Tchaikovsky


It is hard to describe as hard as it was to imagine while reading. It starts with a bang. drags you in like a black hole. Throws you into a completely different world involving giant sentient spiders. For whom you end up rooting for as humans are just bastards. And then wow. You become a spider lover, much like what happened when you read Charlotte's Web as a kid. But then hardcore.
I do not want to get into spoilers as this book is simply amazing but I will describe some factors.


Go FABIAN! He was my favorite, to say the least. I found Portia at times annoying but other times ok. She was the hero after all, but a bit of a robotic hero. The struggles of her biology VS her sentient mind was evident, but it often led her to act a bit standard. Unlike the others.
Humans... I was annoyed every time the humans interrupted the spider narrative for yet another a-hole dispute over power. But they were the reflection of our own crumbling society.


There were so many social issues concentrated on these pages that it was hard for me to keep track of. But they were obvious and made you realize how selfish and ignorant human beings can be.


I love how I finished this book in exactly a month as I plan on reading once a month again. But I am looking forward to the next one. However, I first need to finish the Rosie Project!

My love: ♥♥♥♥♥
