    • Listened via LeVar Burton Reads podcast. (#13)Despite being a short story, it seemed more like two separate stories put into the same narrative one of romance and the other of the researcher which were not fully blended together into a singular narrative. The setting was odd and interesting, some blending of science fiction technology and the social normatives of a generation or two ago, suggesting an interesting world to explore and yet that was simply the pedestal for the story and mostly igno [...]


    • 4.0⭐ ‘A pile of books cluttered his table, held back only by the flight of transparent rainbow colored protein shots.’* Spoilers* Sticher podcast's LeVar Burton Reads is officially back—Season 2, episode 13, and we’re gifted with Repairing the World by John Chu.This Story Is So. Dang. CuteI’m so here for this adorable representation of linguists, delicately creating a language and code, not for government conspiracy, or some academic dead-language venture, but to flirt ;-;As usual, t [...]


    • 3.5I liked this but I also wanted to like it more than I did? Idk, it was good but I was left wanting more I guess.


    • This was a great little story, a world being impinged by the untimely arrival of snippets of others bringing desserts and savannah, beasts and warriors. And the people trying to hold these intrusions back, scholars of language and communication and the science of barrier methods.A world so advanced and yet Homosexuality is still taboo and men have to hide to avoid detection. Very enjoyable little examination of social mores where give and take is the solution just literally and figuratively.


    • This story was read on one of the LeVar Burton’s podcasts which was awesome with the additional sound effects. I felt like I was totally absorbed into this story and then it abruptly ended. I wanted a few more chapters to resolve the two storylines. Interesting world building and interesting characters.


    • I enjoyed it overall, but I wasn't in love with it. I expected there to be some semblance of "another layer" or at least a deeper layer to the story, but I didn't find it. It could be that I wasn't perceptive enough to find it, but it's also possible it wasn't there. It was worth reading, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to everyone I run into.


    • So interesting and instantly easy to fall into the story. I wanted to learn so much more, but was satisfied with the morsel we get. I love the heroine, and how she went about repairing the world. Great story for a bit of an uplift!


    • A bit on the confusing side, but with a lot of intriguing surreal images and ideas. And a very human story at the centre.





    • Eh. LeVar Burton did a great job, as always, with his podcast reading. But I just wasn't a fan of the story at all and had trouble finishing the recording. I can't recommend this.
