Description

Obelus abducts Cora and the other amygdalines as insurance in exchange for Ampersand bringing Obelus the Genome. On her way to lunch, however, the dread only now starting to subside, she spared a glance out the window, at the roof deck of the parking garage several stories below. She neither knows nor cares whether her father's leaks are a hoax, and wants nothing to do with him - until she learns just how deeply entrenched her family is in the cover-up, and that an extraterrestrial presence has been on Earth for decades.

Alternate History: Cora's 2007 goes quite a bit differently from the real one—after the two meteor strikes, her father releases a slew of classified documents and files, including, crucially, a recording that proves George W. Overdrawn at the Blood Bank: Obelus badly wounds Cora before she, Ampersand, and the Genome can escape in one of the autonomous plates. But by the time she turned off the ignition, it was clear that the car, her first and only car, was dead forever.e. mostly okay with the occasional clunker), which makes the story way more manageable, but some of the unique atmosphere of the story is lost. The plan to preserve some of the human DNA is likely abandoned due to un-availability of its two founders. For all of its drama and philosophical conundrums, Ellis's book is ultimately about the power of empathy and kindness in a universe that never has enough of either.

Disappeared Dad: Nils Ortega, Cora's father, ran off and has been absent from his family because of his role in the conspiracy.The book ends with the two characters closer than ever, with an undeniable connection that's so akin to love that I couldn't see it any other way.

Ampersand sees no issue with lying to Cora if he believes it to be in his interest or in hers, has no regrets over damaging the brains of humans through experimentation, and has little respect for human life in general.

Cora is an alternate name for Persephone of Greek Mythology, a story that Ellis has discussed before in her videos. It's funny, I worried they might feel gratuitous, but instead they kind of took me back to the time itself and how things were back then.
