really liked it
Read in February, 2009

Just finished reading for the 3rd or 4th time, this time with my partner. It's a different experience reading Tepper's works out loud. Her sermons about religion and philosophy have always seemed to stretch out much longer than necessary, but they do this even more so when you have to speak through all the words. Kris was distracted and annoyed by the strange names in the beginning, but got used to it, and was amazed by the book by the end.
This is a great example of Tepper's complexity. Multiple characters on multiple planets collide and mix in a way that seems impossible, but works out to be perfect, as only fiction can be. Still, she makes the most fantastic scenarios seem plausible and realistic. If you read this book, you should also read Grass, as the stories are connected (but not dependent on each other).
