This is my 4th Doris Lessing book. I keep running across her name in other literature as in "Of course Doris Lessing said it better" or "In the groundbreaking novel by Doris Lessing". So I pick up another Doris Lessing.

Perhaps this is another one of those authors, like Plath, if read in her time is compelling and exciting. Perhaps I'm just too shallow to get it. Maybe it has all been said so many times in so many different ways that loss of freshness and overexposure have made her novels less...something.

Anyway, this is a fast read about how we are all heading down a really unattractive path and we should quickly start paying attention and change things. It's about how we don't bother to listen to what we already know we should be doing. It's all right on target advice that we don't have time to listen to in our current lifestyles.
