it was amazing
bookshelves: pastoral-dystopia, feminist-science-fiction-horror
Read in August, 2009

One of the most original sci-fi novels I've read in a long time. The female lead is heroic without falling into that grating, "spunky," tough as nails,tank-top wearing cliche. Grass takes an non-cynical philosophical approach towards Catholicism without being preachy and dogmatic. Horrific and inspiring. It combines a creative bestiary with an interesting religious and political hierarchy.
