"A triumph of the imagination. Rich, complex, impossible to put down." Alice Hoffman In the middle of the twenty-first century, life as we know it has changed for all time. Shira Shipman's marriage has broken up, and her young son has been taken from her by the corporation that runs her zone, so she has returned to Tikva, the Jewish free town where she grew up. There, she is welcomed by Malkah, the brilliant grandmother who raised her, and meets an extraordinary man who is not a man at all, but a unique cyborg implanted with intelligence, emotions--and the ability to kill.... From the imagination of Marge Piercy comes yet another stunning novel of morality and courage, a bold adventure of women, men, and the world of tomorrow.

The plot sounded interesting, and the themes very much so. The writing style irritated me so much that I put the book down at page 3.

Yawn. Fun book for a fanatic. Religous bleach for the soul.

This is one of my favorite books, ever. Piercy imagines a world that is one logical and sometime frightening conclusion to many societal trends. And the Jewish themes about identity and observance make it ring true.
