really liked it
bookshelves: sci-fi
Recommended for: all the pagans
Read in August, 2002

You don't have to be pagan to love this book, but it helps.

Okay, first of all don't give up on Starhawk beause of her name.... she happens to be a very down to earth radical activist who connects spirituality with social justice far better than most religious leaders do.

And she brings her poiltical and social critique as well as her pagan world view to the book. The story unfolds a utopique vision of a future San Francisco contrasting against a horrific distopic forcast of what the U.S. could become. There are some shockingly disturbing, yet sadly realistic, scenes in this book. It's utopic visions are inspiring though and she takes an interesting aproach to resolving the conflict of utopia and distopia colliding.
