As the novel’s version of Dr Frankenstein says: “The great and terrible thing about humankind is simply this: we will always do what we are capable of.

There are (too) many musings, and info dump, and so much use of word "indiference" from all the characters. Reflexiones sobre el hombre, la sociedad, la ecología y el futuro se imbrican en todas y cada una de las líneas de la novela. Joined by an AI named Evrim on a sanctuary island, the two are tasked with studying the resident octopus colony.

He knows his stuff and has clearly thought about this a lot, which really shows (to the book's benefit). Some of the data that are collected include the number of visitors, their source, and the pages they visit anonymously.Ha Nguyen is offered the chance to travel to the remote Con Dao Archipelago to investigate a highly intelligent, dangerous octopus species, she doesn’t pause long enough to look at the fine print.

These cookies help provide information on metrics the number of visitors, bounce rate, traffic source, etc. It also is a delight that, while asking difficult questions, the author offers some hope for humankind, and redemptive joy in the struggles involved in facing our environmental battles.

To me, the book works as a cross between the 2016 film Arrival and the more metaphysical moments of the classic novel Stranger in a Strange Land. Nayler, who has written short stories for many years, has a CV that seems fit for one of the first humans living and working in an undersea habitat. We have three main story and time lines: one taking place on an island where we follow a scientist investigating the emergence of an intelligent octopus species (or I should say, even more intelligent than real octopuses already are); one that follows some hacker dude; and one about a trafficked man enslaved on an automated fishing vessel. This is a philosophical novel, a novel built to explore ideas through lives, rather than lives through ideas.
