Original, readable and thought provoking. (Transit, Sea Horse in the Sky, The Uncertain Midnight, The Overman Culture and Who Needs Men from the same author are also recommended).
As ever, Cooper's characters are well drawn, though Jane's a challenge to us all.
Now that I'm decades from my teens, I can see some critics' need to pen Cooper as mysogynist.
Greville is not a man I'd respect and Liz is painted as one recovering from her traumas in a passive manner. Rape is not delivered as a vile crime, just the most convenient assault of a male character against female: yet I confess all crimes are basic interractions in this post-apocalypse. However rapists arent punished lightly by any of Cooper's players.
This is a novel of it's time, using sex more explicitly than other Cooper works I remember. Nevertheless, I enjoyed the message of hope that our species might recover from its nadir. We are reminded our partner in life is the drive and meaning for all we do.
