Great novella - philosophically quite deep, funny, emotionally powerful, thought-provoking. I wish this were a long novel, but it's still awesome. ( )

Taking the holographic universe to very logical conclusions, or at least just adding a new spin to the Matrix, I thought this was a fairly interesting read only made better by the end message.

No spoilers, but it's kinda obvious from the start what the tale is about. It's telegraphed pretty heavily.

Still, there's a lot of great things about the novella, with good worldbuilding, a wide and sweeping grandiosity of scenes and settings that really makes this shine.

So what if I find the main character a bit of a blowhard and not very sympathetic? He's uber powerful but he still has to account for himself in the Wode. But to procreate? Oh my, this has just turned into a comedy.

And it is. From that point forward, the novel is a comedy, but only in the traditional sense, where lessons are learned and the MC moves forward, barely sidestepping tragedy by the grace of others.

Pretty cool, all told. A decent and quick tale.

It was nominated for 2016 Hugo for best Novella. ( )

Hm. One of the weaker Sandersons, but you can't expect too much worldbuilding from such a short novella, and I'm a worldbuilding nut, so that may explain my disappointment. The world was interesting, but failed to capture me. The same goes for the story and characters: Interesting, but not gripping.

All in all, it was a nice read, but will not stay with me for too long. ( )

Perfect State starts with nearly every indication of being a fantasy. However, we quickly find that this doesn't quite match up. Kai is an emperor with seemingly magical powers, and loyal retainers, but, as we soon discover, he's also a brain in a jar. He's Liveborn; all those loyal retainers and everyone else in his worldwide empire are Machineborn.

In some sense, they are not really real.

As a Liveborn, Kai has some responsibilities outside his virtual world, and one of them is procreation. The Wode Scroll summons him from the Fantasy State that is his world, to a Common State where he can meet another Liveborn for the purpose of procreation. He is given a list, with compatibility scores; he chooses the woman at the bottom of the list--lowest compatibility.

He has a plan.

In the course of his pursuit of his plan, we discover what's bugging Kai; why he has resisted meeting other Liveborn, and his doubts about the underpinning of his world.

Really, it's a pretty good story, and after some rough bits getting into it at the beginning, I enjoyed it. Unfortunately, it' not so good that it should be a Hugo Finalist. Getting on the ballot is unfair to the story and to Mr. Sanderson. If I'd just happened across the story, I'd have enjoyed it more than I have by reading it as a story that made the Hugo ballot.

It's not bad; it's just not that good.

I received this story as part of the Hugo Awards Finalists packet for 2016. ( )

It was good, but oh man do I feel uncomfortable. Brandon read the first couple paragraphs of this at a signing last fall, but I was expecting more fantasy than sci-fi as the first twist came in about 20 pages into this 46 page novella.

And then...

Brains in jars! I sort of ship Kai with Melhi, but kind of don't!

It's short since it's a novella, but oooh, it's got more depth than some books I've read. DAMNIT, SANDERSON! ( )
