      I finished this book very early on a morning when I was planning to work in the yard all day long As I trimmed trees, weeded, clipped grass, and gave all the plants a nice drink, I thought how lucky I was to be able to spend my time caring for the life around me.Not like most of the people living in Shira s day We only gradually learn what a disaster the planet has become by the year 2059, which is a good way to tell this type of story I don t like having to read two or three chapters explaining [...]

      Jewish girl in dystopian future meets cyborg, and falls in love Jewish girl in 1600s Prague meets golem, and falls in love As much as I enjoyed The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, when it comes to books involving golems in Prague, this book takes the blue ribbon Kavalier took me a while to get in to, but He, She and It gripped me from the beginning and I could NOT put it down He, She and It is many things Jewish feminist fiction, a robot love story, dystopian science fiction, cyperpunk [...]

      It s the near future and the Earth has been decimated by war and pollution The world is run by huge corporations multis whose chosen employees adhere to rigid, stylized rules for dressing, working, and living Most people, however, live in far reaching, dangerous, poverty ridden slums called The Glop A few towns that are able to create and sell original technology to the multis remain free People around the world have access to an extensive computer network into which they can project themselves [...]

      A friend loaned this to me, telling me one of her profs had told her it was cyberpunk, and she hadn t been enthralled with it I ve read at least one other Marge Piercy, and for the most part, enjoyed this one, although there were some issues that I ve seen in both books so far that I ll get to in a minute But first of all, let s address genre Is this really cyberpunk I would tend to fall on the side of no, not really, although there are some elements of classic cyberpunk in there But instead, I [...]

      2 stars because while the idea isn t bad, I found that it was easy to get myself lost in all the Jewish terms sprouting in the in between, and I felt lost with lots of the dystopian information which were sort or given randomly at times Also, the pace was agonizingly slow, IMO.There is a woman who asks for a divorce and the custody of her child gets given to the father We get a lot of remmebrances of her past dalliances with a man called Gabi, the father of which offers her a job back at her ma [...]

      Strong women, engaged and accomplished women, women who don t faint or puke while staring down an enhanced security ape One of the panel discussions at WisCon this year was the difference between a solid female protagonist and a bad ass super hero, and Marge Piercy needs to be on the next panel Her characters are strong without being perfect Shira Shipman is the Mother in this book s trinity of graces Her son has been assigned to her exhusband in a divorce decree and she wants the boy back Riva, [...]

      As you can probably surmise from the huge collection of tags I ve attached to this book, there is A LOT of stuff going on here Even the structure of this book is complex and multifaceted two stories, told by two narrators, in alternating chapters The first narrator is Shira Shipman, a young, upper middle class Jewish woman who has recently become a wife and mother Her life is also almost completely controlled by her employer, a huge biotechnology corporation, not only because they have a very st [...]

      I don t know where I got this book as sci fi is not the genre I usually read and with a title of He, She and It I didn t expect much of it I was vastly surprised when I found myself reading about the Maharal of Prague I was humbled and honored to even gaze at the printed word Maharal I had heard stories about the Golem but didn t know too much I was very moved by his story and cried when it came to an end One of my sons has been to Prague and to the Altneushul He said there are stories about the [...]

      One of my favourite SF books of all time Time to re read That sexism is alive and well and rife in literary culture is proved by the fact that Body of Glass isn t famous than anything by William Gibson, for example, though I see it did at least win an Arthur C Clarke award This is published in the US under the truly dreadful title He, She and It Also worth checking out Woman on the Edge of Time Classic 1970s feminist utopia, with, if I remember correctly, a rather good dystopia as well.

      Absolutely fantastic book Deep and layered and fascinating cyberpunk morality romance Hard to describe but worth the read, a classic for sure

    12. Carol on said:

      This beautiful sci fi novel is set in the mid twenty first century, several decades after a major ecological cataclysm and resulting societal upheaval The reduced human population can no longer live in the open without protective gear and structures, the majority of food must be derived from algae and grown in vats but computer technology is very advanced, with AIs, service robots, and sophisticated virtual reality People live in closed corporate enclaves, the sprawling and chaotic urban Glop, o [...]

      so i d say i am about 1 2 way through the novel and have gradually become fully and completely invested in the story the copy i have from my library looks like it was published in the sixties you know hardback with the plastic slip cover, poorly executed artwork on the cover that no offense to the artist but it looks kind of cheap so in some ways the novel feels dated than 1991, but in other ways the author has done an admirable job of predicting the future and the book still feels relevant tod [...]

    14. Ariel on said:

      I started He, She, and It on spring break and finally finished it today, but I m glad I could savor this novel over three months because it is fabulous Marge Piercy writes a cyberpunk novel that doesn t ignore women, religion, ethnicity, community She s the kind of science fiction writer I love someone who doesn t care about how people interface with a computer or what technology builds a cyborg, but rather what happens and what folks feel.I may call He, She, and It cyberpunk, but it s not all d [...]

      I re read this book after many years, and I had to struggle with myself not to give it five stars It is perfect for me Reading science fiction set in a world where Hebrew names, Jewish culture, and Jewish history are basics is exhilarating Plus I care deeply about the issues of the book gender, power and its abuse, the meaning of love and loyalty.It also amazes me how well Piercy could imagine the internet, virtual reality, and ecological devastation, writing than a quarter century ago The book [...]

    17. Tucker on said:

      A long book that started off slow, but got better and better right up until the end The human creator of this golem cyborg put it through iterations until the result became increasingly humanlike In that, the premise of the 2015 film Ex Machina resembles this book, which predated the film by two and a half decades The robot has opinions, makes conversations, and has sex as a male.This book also foretold the rise of the Internet It has people living in what we might call today smart houses where [...]

      Beautiful I won t say much here, as I m teaching this book in the fall But this is a beautiful, challenging, and memorable read.So many aspects of this book fascinate me, it would have been hard for me not to like it There was religion, science fiction, apocalyptic fiction and themes of starting over, golems just an endless array There is no small irony or pun in saying that what struck me as most moving was the humanity at the center of this book.I really don t want to go on about this one, in [...]

    19. Diana on said:

      This was a brilliantly written and brilliantly conceived book I am a fan of Marge Piercy s poetry, but not as big a fan of her novels never was able to get into her most famous novel Woman on the Edge of Time This book, however, captured my imagination and emotions It was given to me to read by a graduate school friend of mine, and I found myself drawn into the story immediately I love the complex layers of themes that Piercy gives readers here At the heart of this novel, for me, is the concept [...]

      So nice to read feminist sci fi with a golem added in I gobbled this one up with pleasure

      Full review available at warmdayswillnevercease.wordpressRating 4.5 5He, She and It is set in what used to be the United States of America and Canada in the year 2059 where humanity has made great advances in technology and the human body is easily fused with pieces of tech or modified in other ways There are several different groups of people in this novel those that live in multis , those that live in the Glop , and those that live in Free Towns Multis are multi national enterprises that have [...]

      I found this quite a pleasant read, much better than I expected The person who recommended it to me said it was a wonderful romance story with sci fi tinges , so I was expecting something along the lines of YA romance science fiction In reality, this is a very good sci fi book, well constructed and with an interesting premise, and the romance is just an element of the story.The feminist part was very nice in some points and not so good in others There are amazing, complex female characters and y [...]

      3.5, rounding up.I just gotta say, as much as I ultimately LOVE Marge Piercy stories the two and one poem I ve read of hers I always have a hard time getting through them I have to chalk it up to her writing style Because I love her stories, her characters, her unique plots and still her rare feminist in a non chalant way attitude about all the things She writes feminism as a fact, not as a future goal or a current struggle and that enables her to explore social and community dynamics in a deepe [...]

    24. Kendra Bayer on said:

      He, she and it is one of those novels that puts things into perspective For example what does it mean to be human What does it mean if you connect with an AI than with humans Etc

    25. Julia on said:

      The premise of this book is really interesting Piercy s parallel of the medieval legend about the Golem of Prague works very well with the creation of a cyber golem in a dystopian future The alternating chapters between Rabbi Loew s Prague golem and Avram s YOD are done very well and the message is clear in both cases Whether using mystical chanting or technology, humans do NOT have the right to create beings and use them as slaves.YOD is my favorite character, although Malkah comes in at the to [...]

    26. Tom on said:

      Marge Piercy tells a number of stories in He, She, and It, and none of them particularly well All at once, you are reading a techno futurist utopian science fiction novel, a love story between a woman and a cyborg which touches on existential questions about what it means to be human and machine, a story of the struggles faced by Jewish people throughout time, a meditation on growing older, criticism of masculinity and a celebration of femininity, the bonding of women between generations, and t [...]

    27. Stephanie on said:

      This book really has a lot of great things going on It juxtapositions two story lines a dystopian, futuristic, cyberpunk, cyborg love story and the story of a 1600 s Rabbi in Prague who creates a golem to protect the ghetto There are so many great issues touched upon in this book feminism, corporate power, alternate family structures, Jewish beliefs, antisemitism, what it means to be human, whether or not creating artificial intelligence cyborgs is dangerous or blasphemous, and even what a relat [...]

      I was sitting in the sauna at Guemes and realized I d forgotten to bring in any reading material or a crossword puzzle I asked Ben to bring me something from the cabin ANYTHING I told him to find something that looked pulpy He came back with this I started reading and what do you know This book is right up my alley So far the story is pretty engaging It reminds me a little of a epic Oryx and Crake this one came out in 1991, by the way , in that the world is divided into corporate enclaves and t [...]

    29. Sandy S on said:

      He , She and It first published in 1993 is a novel that falls into many different genres but first and foremost science fiction There is also the overriding Dystopian feel as the story is set in the mid 21st century interwoven with an historical story passed down through the Jewish families about discrimination and beliefs.The premise follows two distinct storylines but in retrospect are similar than not They are both stories of forbidden love, displacing traditions and the ultimate control of [...]
