NOT ALWAYS ABOUT THE TECHWHAT ARE 
always about the techWhat are of us Truly We hide behind entities and justifications just as damning as the operant conditioning so tightly discussed in this novel Good boy Rex ou re a good dog lol Forest Gardening: Cultivating an Edible Landscape yeah indeedIt s similar to Tchaikovsky s other novels in that he s got a big thing going on about personified animals or a wide variation on the theme but like his other SF novel Children of Time I really like his SF much better than his fantasy There s a lot depth that I can sink my teeth into IMHO It s not as epic as CoT either but it s certainly a very interesting ride Don t go into it expecting the same thing it starts out with The novel changes with the MC or I should say the MCs Damn I love Honey It s worth reading just for her 45 starsExcellent near future SF that delves deep into the ethical uestions that arise from augmenting animals and transforming them into a state of personhood It is just as heartwrenching asou might expect I was made to be a weapon but I have lived a life I was born an animal they made me into a soldier and treated me as a thing Servant and slave leader and follower I tell myself I have been a Good Dog Nobody else can decide that for me e arc given to me via netgalley in exchange for an honest review Life is constant creation and destruction The trick is knowing one from another This book is about a group of engineered bioform animals They re used as weapons in the war cause they can carry out orders given to them by their master Rex is a dog also the leader of the group which consists of a bear a giant lizarddragon and bees Something about this book is that ou will find the animals intriguing than the humans I loved reading from Rex s perspective and anytime it was a person s POV I got very boredThe author did a great job with the animals they had emotions thoughts and different personalities They even went through an intense character development especially Rex My name is Rex I am a good Dog At first Rex was a dog that worried about not pleasing his master and not making the right decisions but am glad that I got to see him getting over those fears and being himselfThe reason am not giving this book five stars is because it was so boring at times The writing was a little bit difficult to get into at first but I got used to it whenever it was Rex speaking but anytime it was humans I found their whole dialogue boring I don t even think they should have their own point of view it wasn t too necessary I d recommend this book to Sci fi fans looking for something different and animal this book to Sci fi fans looking for something different and animal My thoughts in a nutshell I don t read sci fi I can t enjoy it but I m always trying to find an exception I understood why people love this book It has a lot of important uestions What makes us human What if the bioform half humanhalf animal are intelligent species with emotions Do they have rights or they just weaponsRex is a dog and he wants to be a good dog His master wants Rex to kill the enemies but who is the real enemy What makes someo.
