I’ve heard great things about “Children of Time,” by Adrian Tchaikovsky, and I’ve started reading it, but I’m finding it tough to get into.

The book is science fiction, set on a planet that was terraformed by ancient humans and is now dominated by intelligent spiders.

So far, the book focuses on a bunch of uninspiring humans doing uninteresting things.

Where are the spiders, Adrian? I’m here for the spiders!
