The cigar-smoking, heavy-drinking intelligent monkey, fighting as a RAF pilot against ninja nazis is a very pulp concept, but it's not what the book is about. Perhaps more could have been done with that idea. The actual story is about copying and uploading people's personalities to synthetic bodies. A very science-fictional concept, but it is not treated in any deep way. It's mostly a quick, light read, a fun adventure. Entertaining but forgettable.

Este libro construye en muy pocas paginas un universo y una historia de amor que ya le gustaría a novelas mucho más largas. Creo que no le falta ni le sobra nada, como si al escribirlo lo hubiesen medido todo al milímetro.

Quizá, por sacarle la puntilla, me falta algo de representación queer y mas con los temas que trata el libro.

The details of the plot and main character were interesting, but the high-level plot just didn’t work for me.

Any book where the best character is the ship is a total win in my world.
