The times and species have been changing at a rapid rate, and the social compact is wearing as thin as environmental stability. Adam One, the kindly leader of the God's Gardeners--a religion devoted to the melding of science and religion, as well as the preservation of all plant and animal life--has long predicted a natural disaster that will alter Earth as we know it. Now it has occurred, obliterating most human life. Two women have survived: Ren, a young trapeze dancer locked inside the high-end sex club Scales and Tails, and Toby, a God's Gardener barricaded inside a luxurious spa where many of the treatments are edible.

I marvel at the mind of MA. I did not try to figure out or make great leaps of understanding over this. Just kind of go with the story. Excellent readers kept be interested. Lovely singing voice of who is it?

An interesting dystopian novel with environmental, religious, devaluing of women and end-of-world themes told from the perspective of two women of different generations.

This is better than the book (which I have not read) but there is music in this cd and speeches which cannot be done as well in a book format. This is one of the best audiobooks I have ever heard. A very timely subject and perhaps a little too close to reality.

The ending was somewhat dissatisfying - no real conclusion.
