The Margarets

The Margarets by Sheri S. Tepper (Harper Collins, 2007)

This is a very imaginative science fiction book with undercurrents of strong  environmentalism and feminism.  By splitting her main character into seven people, she tells the tale of life on seven different planets, and brings them all back together in the end.  She makes her negative view of humanity pretty clear, but also finds a way to fix us. I have never read anything by Tepper before but she came highly recommended.  I found her to be a very thought-provoking writer.

    I first read Sheri Tepper in The Gate to Women’s Country. I proceeded to read as many of her books as I could find. They were all very interesting. I’d like to see an analysis of her works overall.
