'Everything is imprinted forever with what it once was.'
A novel about humans destroying their environment over and over again; not a theme unique to Jeanette Winterson, but one familiar from other writers. She gives it her own flavour and language and makes it a pleasant enough read, although sometimes obscure. The novel appears to start in the very distant past, we spend some time on Easter Island, as the Islands environment is deteriorating and finally into our near future. The middle section only fits as another example of how we have damaged our environment; the other two tales are intertwined more clearly.
Some interesting ideas; a world where everyone is beautiful and a world where nothing is owned, just rented from a corporate monster; she does not show much happiness in the civilisations as they near their destruction. Happiness, she is very clear is about nature, clean air and freedom.
