I enjoyed the first one. But I'd have to read it again before going on. I think that gender thing confused me way too much. More than it seems to have confused anyone else. But definitely a very good book.

I don't think it should really be confusing, since the gender of the characters doesn't matter to the story at all. You're not going to miss anything by just taking it at face value and considering everyone female.

Yeah, that's the way to go. I spent too much time trying to figure out who was what. And trying to figure out why the ship couldn't figure it out.

The first time I read the first book, I spent some time speculating as to what gender this or that character really was, but by the second book I was immersed in the universe enough that it really ceased to matter.
