    A provocative, engrossing read

    Discovered this book by accident somewhere or other, picked it up and couldn't put it down. Lots of challenging ideas (changing sex back and forth over an extended lifespan, church and press conspiring to murder a popular performer at his own request, a super-computer with a personality that can catch depression from the people it looks after and more), plus commentary on our own celebrity a obsessed culture today, richly drawn characters and writing style that veers from laugh-out-loud humor to intense drama to moving emotion and back again. A must for any fan of dystopian future fiction...or just plain good writing.
