Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent! (I am not a fan of this cover redesign and urge readers to seek out the older printings if possible, but nevertheless...) Winterson flawlessly combines elements of fantasy with science and logic in this imaginative novel. Unique characters, intriguing plot, and a fantastical writing style -- this book is very much worth checking out if you like classic fantasy and have an interest in physics and the properties of the universe.

About the Author

Jeanette Winterson was born in Manchester, England in 1959 and graduated from St. Catherine's College, Oxford. Her book, Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit, is a semi-autobiographical account of her life as a child preacher (she wrote and gave sermons by the time she was eight years old). The book was the winner of the Whitbread Prize for best first fiction and was made into an award-winning TV movie. The Passion won the John Llewelyn Rhys Memorial Prize for best writer under thirty-five, and Sexing the Cherry won the American Academy of Arts and Letters' E. M. Forster Award.

Appropriate for ages: 9 - 12
