9780812550108: Beggars and Choosers (Beggars Trilogy (also known as Sleepless Trilogy))

In Beggars and Choosers, Kress returns to the same future world created in her earlier work, an America strangely altered by genetic modifications. Millions of ordinary people are supported by the efforts of the handsome and intellectually superior gene-modified, who are in turn running scared in the face of the astonishing, nearly superhuman powers of the Sleepless, who have their own agenda for humanity. The Sleepless, radically altered humans, have withdrawn from the rest of the race to an island retreat, from which they periodically release dazzling scientific advances. Most of the world is on the verge of collapse, overburdened by a population of jobless drones and racked by the results of irresponsible genetic research and nano-technology. Will the world be saved? And for whom?

Review:

''Kress' sequel to Beggars in Spain fearlessly addresses a host of ethical quandaries while simultaneously relating a vivid tale of people trapped by their biological destinies.'' --Library Journal

''Takes an admirably complex look at controversial issues . . . [This] isn't merely an excellent and thoughtful work of science fiction but is also an important commentary on some of the key issues we'll be facing in the next century.'' --Publishers Weekly

''[A] plot that hums like a high-tension cable. The miracle is that this excitement is generated by readers' own moral confusion . . . Beggars and Choosers will terrify, delight, enrage, and engage.'' --School Library Journal

''Kress' work remains strongly character driven, an approach that in her hands raises social-speculation SF to about as high a level as one can reasonably expect.'' --Booklist
