There's a joke that if we ever have a woman president we'll never go to war, but there will be some serious negotiations every 28 days! The point is that a female approach is different, and certainly this science fiction novel by a woman exemplified that. The use of SF was an artistic choice to prepare a metaphor: our souls, and the feeling of love, transcend the corporal and exist eternally in the universe. For my puny male brain, the book was overly romantic mush and about 50% too long. It was rare for more than a few minutes to go by without romantic musings, or the author using the characters to state her position of the absolute spiritual authority of creativity over other human abilities. This book was a polemic that challenged the status quo and evil in the world, and proposed its own spiritual approach. I appreciated the author's points, but it was tedious to have them presented redudantly literally *hundreds* of times over 17 hours of listening.
