It's horrible, as I remember it.  It put me off Sheri Tepper's
stuff for a long time because it's the first one I read.  My
sister talked me into reading it.

It's not badly written, but it's very unpleasant.

Later I started with something different.  _Gibbon's Decline
and Fall_, maybe.  Anyway, I've read quite a bit of Tepper
now, but I've never been tempted to reread _Beauty_.


The mome rath isn't born that could
outgrabe me.
