Here's what people out there are saying:
"Gender politics and sexual awareness play prominent roles in Karr's thought-provoking dystopian debut, set in a totalitarian future. A solid, enjoyable story." ~Publishers Weekly
“A fun little thriller.” ~Kirkus
“In her unsettling debut, Karr depicts a sex-obsessed future where women are the perpetual victims of predatory marketing, and other societal ills seen in our present...taken to terrifying ends. ...there’s no doubt this well-written, accessible sci-fi thriller will provoke discussion.” ~Booklist
Now those are the professionals. But we all know the real pros are the readers. So you wanna know what other people are saying? How about Princess Bookie? She weighs in with FOUR CUPCAKES! That's pretty darn delicious.
And Zoe over at Zoe's Book Reviews had some amazing things to say also. Or check out Supernatural Snark's review. So if you don't believe the pros, maybe you'll believe your fellow readers. Because nothing speaks about a book louder than readers.
As for this reader, I only have a few words to say. XVI of them, actually: XVI is the kind of book you lay awake thinking about. And that’s a good thing.
