Viscous Circle by Piers Anthony
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Although the book suffers from the blatant sexism of its day, it was forward thinking for its time, and had some very positive messages about what ideals should be truly valued. The science in the book was hit or miss; some parts make it seem like hard science fiction, but other parts are so implausible on their face that it made me wonder why the author attempted to be so scientifically accurate in the more rigorous sections. Apparently, the author wrote this book while going through a serious illness, so that might explain some of the defects. Nevertheless, it was a fun read, and I don't regret going through it, flaw-filled though it may have been.
