"Marge Piercy is every bit as imaginative as H. G. Wells or Isaac Asimov or any of the great fantasists, but she is also a fierce and devoted activist who wants us to be more than passive readers." (GLORIA STEINEM)
"A triumph of the imagination. Rich, complex, impossible to put down. Every new novel by Marge Piercy is cause for celebration" (Alice Hoffman)
"Piercy’s vision of a post-greenhouse-effect, nuclear-blasted world interlaced with the Prague ghetto of 1600, and the efforts of certain people to stay human in both, is threaded with the questions: What is it to be human? … What does `life’ mean?… What are the limits of creativity? As always, Piercy writes with high intelligence, love for the world, ethical passion and innate feminism" (Adrienne Rich)
"HE, SHE AND IT, a ground-breaking example of Jewish feminist fabulation, is a triumph" (AMERICAN BOOK REVIEW)
"One of our boldest writers...like Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, He, She and It finds disturbing trends in contemporary culture." (Los Angeles Times Book Review) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
The classic literary feminist novel about artificial intelligence --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product description

While I really enjoyed the book ,and how the story played out as the characters, particularly those of Shira and Yod developed, it did feel just a little drawn out at times, and that is why I eventually decided on 3 rather than 4 stars, though it was close. I also have to admit that while I understood the reason for including the story of the Golem I much preferred the portions of the book narrated by Shira. Another very positive thing about the book was the character of Malkah, it's ( unfortunately) rare that we see such a strong, intelligent , funny and very real older woman portrayed so well in fiction.
As the cyber age continues, a lot of what Piercy has imagined is beginning to become reality from cyber attacks to the ethics of a conscious AI such as Yod.
Anyone who enjoys dystopian fiction, cyberpunk, divergent, the hunger games series or the handmaid's tale will enjoy this.
