message 4: by Jayme (new)

Jayme I'm glad you liked it. This is one I definitely have to read soon.


Cindy Yeah, it's really worth it. I was debating whether or not to write a review, because so many other folks had written eloquent, succinct reviews.

I was particularly enlightened by the way the story shines a light on gender relations and how they shape almost everything we do. Gives you lots to think about.


message 2: by Jayme (new)

Jayme I vote that you review it. I like reading reviews from people I know better than the ones listed with the books.


Cindy Haha, Ok, ok! I think I actually jotted down some notes somewhere...

BTW, I'm trying to read some other 'gender-bending' sci-fi this month, and I just started Playing God, which has a different take on sexuality, gender, and politics.
