"An excellent and thoughtful work of science." (Publishers Weekly)
"Beggars and Choosers will terrify, delight, enrage, and engage." (School Library Journal)
"Fearlessly addresses a host of ethical quandaries while simultaneously relating a vivid tale of people trapped by their biological destinies." (Library Journal)
This wasn't as good as Beggars in Spain. ..but only because Spain was my glimps of this alternate "Gene Mod" reality. Future really. Chooser's is an excellent stand alone. Highly recommended.
Say something about yourself!
This is a solid sequel to Beggars in Spain, but it simply does not live up to the original. There is excellent further development of some of the key characters from book one, but some of the very clever and thought-provoking questions raised in the original are begged here, and the story line, rather than becoming tighter, is starting to unravel. Kress is still one of the best in the genre and the multi-reader narration brings the book to life in a remarkable way. Definitely worth a listen.
