    1. This book was absolutely terrible. It's so terrible I don't even want to give it one star. It's so terrible I would rather re-read Fifty Shades of Grey than ever re-read this book.This book was racist, classist, ableist, homophobic, xenophobic, and - ironically - sexist. And on top of all that, it was terribly written.I've heard multiple people compare this book to The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and I think Margaret Atwood should sue those people for daring to associate her name with thi [...]

    2. This book which was originally published in 1979 is truer than ever in 2017. Women's right to choose is still not in consensus.

    4. I'm adding a shelf for books recommended by the Feminist SciFi blog of books to read this election season.

    5. The following quote was reason enough to read this book."At least stay for Christmas," Pam urged."Do you have it?""Not as such. The birth of a male who thinks he's god isn't such a rare event."
