This was fantastic! Dystopian future where the US is trying to get back to traditional values and ways of life. It was a thrilling and plausible plot where both male and female characters are intriguing (except maybe the token male love interest, a character who I felt illustrated a reversal of the Bechdel test!). Unputdownable, I raced through it and can't wait to discuss it at book club!
This was super-graphic and other-wordly. It had a great arc for the main character, he went from being a dick to, errr, no longer having a dick! It was bleak about humanity and really quite odd - BUT - I stuck with it and I'm glad I did, even with the frequent and incredibly detailed descriptions of genitalia. So much to unpick about the relationships between anatomy, sex and gender. Fascinating.
