The Caryatids - Bruce Sterling

Seven clones for slaughtered lands, or something like that.

A nearish future novel with a bunch of superwomen exiled, and fair chunks of the Earth with a lot of environmental problems.

People still have some cool tech gear, though.

Surveillance has also increased towards the fascist end of the spectrum. Sort of only dealt with in passing, as the three main characters and two main groups come into conflict.

It started interestingly, but then gets pretty tedious a sit fails to balance whether it wants to follow the whacky people around, or talk about the general situation.

3 out of 5
