Dazzling dark dystopian fiction. Jordan's newest is a kind of cross between Margaret Atwood and Nathaniel Hawthorne- a futuristic America where gender politics and religion have resulted in abortion becoming illegal in 40 states, and in a nation where there is a Secretary of Faith. Chromosomal changes turn "criminals" skin different colors, to relieve overcrowding in prisons, and Hannah, the protagonist of this thought provoking novel is a Red, for murder of her unborn child. Excellent book.
This is a log of what books I've been reading and movies I've been watching. Comments are welcome!
One explanation seems necessary - the phrase "Life-Changing Fiction" is not in any way an endorsement of those books- in fact, I think those books are Awful, and want that to be clear. "Life-Changing Fiction", as a phrase, has been trademarked, absurdly, by the "Christian fiction" writer Karen Kingsbury, and that is Just Not Right. Aside from being ridiculous, it just sheds light on the hypocrisy of the writer. What would Jesus copyright?
