A review of this — 6 years ago
Way racier than the other Hopkinson books I have read. I didn’t like it as well as the others. She tried to do the Toni Morrison “several vaguely intertwined stories” thing, and it wasn’t totally successful. I though that some of the weird text things she did were sort of contrived, too. However, the individual stories were pretty compelling. I wish she would have done more storytelling overall and streamlined the metaphysical content some. However, the IDEA for the book was great and interesting – it’s just that the execution was somewhat lacking. Worth a read, though (just be careful – it’s pretty disturbing in places).
