This book is a very entertaining adventure story that also gives a great picture of some serious issues, from repression in today's Arabian peninsula to the hubris of technology geeks who think that computers can solve life's basic dilemmas.
Having Morrison read her own book is so wonderful -- her quiet voice is gentle and loving in some places, conveys such quiet fury in others.
Her characters, as usual, are haunting and complicated, with sympathetic stories that make you see where their limitations come from -- and ultimately, it's racism.
It's always just a joy to hear Morrison's beautiful language and learn from her brilliant perceptions.
