I didn't like Lightning in the sense that it gave me warm and fuzzy feelings, but I definitely found it fascinating and creative and I continued reading to the end. And I'll be picking up the sequel.

On the gender stuff, I felt like it was definitely a case of unreliable narrator, and the way that they constantly drew attention to gender while professing not to care was a way of undermining their own professed position. Same with the egalitarianism--it's supposed to be so egalitarian but also it's run by a small inbred group of people who roleplay as aristocrats? I'd like to see how the foreshadowed social upheaval is going to play out.

About Ninefox Gambit--I haven't read it, partly because I'm afraid it will not work because I'm a mathematician. Not that the math will be wrong or anything, more that to me math is not something mystical, and in this book I get the impression that math is basically magic.
