The writing is lovely and poetic in parts. It's about friendship and love and wanting to live forever and the love of books and mysteries. I cried at the end because of lines like this:
There is no immortality that is not built on friendship and work done with care. All the secrets in the world worth knowing are hiding in plain sight. It takes forty-one seconds to climb a ladder three stories tall. It's not easy to imagine the year 3012, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try. We have new capabilities now—strange powers we're still getting used to.
I'm not doing it justice, read it! a 7.
