I so agree with @whami. I felt the same about it starting off well. In one way I thought it was a rush, covering just 2-3 days. But I went with it, and really got in to the story, but then feel it didn't quite finish off properly. Some plots just stop, and I kinda feel the 'chapter' where she said that they met the aliens but would never remember what was said, was a bit of a cop-out. So it didn't feel properly finished. I think this is one of her earlier books, and defo not as good as Who Fears Death or the Binti novels.
