Review: Scott Westerfield book Polymorph
Scott Westerfield book Polymorph
Gender
Lee can change her gender and ethnicity at will, allowing her to slip freely through New York society.
From: anonymous , 544 months, post #1
The protagonist is basically a club kid of the future, switching between genders and among races, "looks," and sexualities freely throughout the book. Lots of hot sex and closely observed "tribal" eccentricities in the long, idyllic first section.

Conflict arises when she encounters another polymorph, one who has a disturbing agenda. Definitely male at heart, this other polymorph steals identities of wealthy and powerful folks. Our hero/ine, with the help of a couple of hackers (themselves gender surfers in a virtual sense), wages war on this evil polymorph.

If you like gender-bending or the New York City underworld, this is a fabulously detailed book. The protagonist's eyes have been honed through years of her anthropological observation. Subtlely shifting use of pronouns, great clothes and mannerisms, and some truly wild polymorphous genetalia. Also good hacking kung fu, with electronic identity issues reflecting the urban and biological chaos swirling throughout the book.

Sure to be a classic. Read it.

Very good book, highly recomended. A 'what if' shapeshifters really existed.
