Customer Review

on 6 October 2006
Maul is a novel of two stories.

Katz is a chubby teenage Korean-American, painfully self-conscious as she tries to reconcile herself to her group identity and the consumer-driven, brand-orientated gun-fest that is breaking out around her in the Mall. In these poignant times, she is an icon of a society at war with itself.

Meniscus is one of the last surviving males of a Y-chromosone retrovirus. A clone captive and sealed in the glass environment of a lab, it seems that his body is in an all-or-nothing war with itself.

These narratives are linked, but never converge. At least explicitly. If there is a twist, it is lurking round the corner, waiting for the perceptive reader to go find it. Anything more would represent a spoiler!

What Maul is, is an incredibly sophisticated novel that does not only Sullivan, but the SF genre as a whole credit. It is one of those dangerous novels that puts the very reality we live in at peril.
