The science of science fiction

Triton - Samuel R. Delany

I’m not sure how I feel about Triton. There were parts I couldn’t get enough off, reading obsessively and loosing track of time. And others I just plain skipped. There’s a lot of sci-fi science explained in great detail, which began as interesting but quickly became arrogant and unnecessary. Also the main ‘plot’ of the novel wasn’t clear at all; whether this was a comment of society, on gender or an exploration into one person’s psyche. It didn’t seem to mesh at all. The political and gender discussions of the novel were very interesting, and well done. They just didn’t seem to connect to anything. It’s a novel I’m glad I’ve read, but not one I’d try again
