Your Multicolored Life, by Xing He

★★☆☆☆ Not Recommended

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: It was quite interesting that the robots enforced a type of inequality among the human population, so escaping from them meant entirely different things to Zhang Hua and Ruo.

Con: The ending is entirely unsatisfying, with Ruo committing suicide and Zhang dying of old age at 30. And the castration of Ruo was completely gratuitous.
