Pushing Ice (Reynolds), Interim Comment

Good god, everyone's insane. Well, not everyone. But both Svetlana and Bella need to be slapped silly. Or slapped sensible. And the rest of the crew, for not keeping Svetlana on a democratic leash.

Hope some readers knows what I'm talking about... I just hit the Buenos Aires passage.

Sure as hell wasn't this book. The closest thing they had to an election was a tribal show of who had the most support. Otherwise it was swapping autocracy back and forth in a community of up to five hundred people. There's something to be said for avoiding overhead, and they inherited the autocracy of captaincy, but when you're locking people up for years there's something to be said for "hey, direct democracy actually works that this scale". But no, it was all "Svetlana, can be maybe give her a pack of cigarettes a year?" and never "Um, guys, are we really on board with this?"

I note that Reynolds is Welsh and not at all American so we can't take the blame on this one.
