I'm feeling two ways about this book. It's Marge Piercy so the writing is completely brilliant. But the subject matter is just so gosh darn depressing that I found the book to be a slog. And honestly - her definition of utopia doesn't suit me that well - so even those parts of the book weren't uplifting. I kept finding things to be annoyed at. Still Connie was an amazingly well realized character and I loved the ambiguous ending.
