137/111 - The Intrusion by Ken Macleod
I bought this book on a whim because I thought the premise sounded interesting - it's set in the near future where pregnant women can take a pill which will automatically fix any genetic mutations. Hope decides that she doesn't want to do this.
This book had so much potential to be good but in the end I found it to be really poorly written. I didn't give a shit about any of the characters, the dystopian, totalitarian part of the book was weak and diluted, even though there were some good references. A lot of the antagonistic characters were total cliches. Just didn't like it. Interesting idea, poor execution.
