Space OperaSpace Opera by Catherynne M. Valente

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


Valente channels the ghost of Douglas Adams for this enjoyable romp through the space-time continuum in which an intergalactic singing contest determines the fate of humanity. The story here is really more of an excuse for an elaborate and sometimes funny world-building exercise involving a lot of strange concepts and aliens and a lot of tangents. Clearly, she had fun writing it, but with so many tangents and concepts the flow and the story get a bit lost and muddled. Enjoyable but not great.
