Exactly what I look for in both language and form Another great translation by Johannes G ransson Oscillates among 6 or 8 sources to form a coherent response to the infiltration of technology on lives and bodies Lacks some of the greatest individual moments of her other work, but the concept is perfectly executed 4.5 stars. I missed a lot on my first read through The translation is excellent, seeming to maintain the energy and linguistic creativity from endnotes and looking at original in this dual language edition A quick read that will likely reveal with subsequent re reading Initial rating 3.5. I wrote a mini review of this book for Tarpaulin Sky A great feminist account on how patriarchy destroys, disrupts, rapes, hacks the environment, the world, society, the female body A cyber poetry on rebellion 3.5 5 kattmjuk avtoxoplasma,schizosexEuforinend dar aldrigsin v rldp 63 A stimulant of a book, but it sucks your blood at the same time while you don t notice.
