it was ok
bookshelves: gender, science-fiction
Read in March, 2011

This was hard to get into. The writing style took some getting used to, and the setting and characters and what was going on in the beginning was all so different that it took a lot of energy to parse.

But once I settled into things, it got better, it got easier.

The society he's set up is interesting. Though there doesn't seem to be a lot of room for people who wouldn't want to live in any sort of commune, even if there's all sorts of different communal living groups.

And, I don't know if I have much more to say about it. It's interesting. Oh! And I had stopped reading it, and had to go back to it because I'd started reading Among Others by Jo Walton and it was totally spoiling me for this book! That was annoying. But it prompted me to finish this book anyway.
