    In a time like the present, three young people dream of the fabulous ruins of a decaying city somewhere in the distant future: the Kalpa. The dreams of Ginny and Jack overtake them without warning, leaving their bodies behind while carrying their consciousnesses forward.

    Overall

    After reading the other reviews, I almost avoided this book. I love Bear's other titles, so decided to give it a shot. I really liked the book. Yes, it is confusing, especially at the beginning. I think, though, that the author was trying to covey the feeling that the characters had, by writing the book in such a way as to mimic their confusion, their sense of trying to understand what is happening to them and their world and their feelings of coping with infinite and clashing rules, order, and reality. If you just go with it, the book is very satisfying, interesting, and imaginative. It is not just another retold tale, but something different. I thought is was artful and fascinating how he deals with huge concepts of time, space, alternate universes, etc. I found the characters and their connections interesting. I wanted to know how they dealt with the situation and was satisfied with the books conclusion. I think this one is up there among the better books.
