Some of these changes are highly meaningful to the story and an integral part of the very deep world-building Slonczewski displays in this novel, but I felt that the playfulness of this aspect of the novel occasionally clashed with its generally grim tone, as if someone cut a few scenes from a comedy say, PCU into an otherwise very deep, thought-provoking and frequently cynical story about an all-too-plausible future society.
The only other issue I had with this otherwise excellent novel was its ending. This is doubly unfortunate for a novel that was built up with such meticulous care and showed so much depth. Highly recommended.
