Gibbon's Decline and Fall Summary

Gibbon's Decline and Fall by Sheri S. Tepper

From the author of Grass and Shadow's End, an astonishing science fiction novel featuring a group of women racing to avert apocalypse at the turn of the millennium.

Fast forward to the year 2000: a ruthless politician is amassing a terrifying, fanatic power base; the suicide rate has gone through the roof... and the global birthrate has plummeted to near zero. Something evil is threatening the world. Of the seven extraordinary women forming the Decline and Fall Club, six remain. The seventh, Sophy, disappeared three years before, her dazzling, unearthly beauty undiminished. Her friends come to see that unlocking the secret of Sophy's disappearance will be the key to the survival of humanity.

Gibbon's Decline and Fall Reviews

`The Women's Room invaded by Big Brother. A provocative, devastating, enthralling consciousness raiser'
Kirkus Reviews

`Visceral and arresting. Curl up with it'
FT

`Opening as near-future realism, the novel metamorphoses into a mythical telling of the struggle between those who desire domination and the forces of balance and harmony. It entwines Native American folk legends with modern science fiction in a well told story of female anger'
New Scientist

`Tepper can be characterized as a quirkily feminist writer... this fable of ethics, feminism and transcendence employs an intriguing concept involving an alternate branching of the evolutionary tree... As always, Tepper creates excellent female characters transported by a swiftly flowing plot'
PW

`Tepper never forgets to give the reader a gripping story on which to hang the serious concerns that lie at the root of her books... It's the breadth of it all, and how it all interrelates, that proves so absorbing... she shows how taking responsibility for one's own life and actions can become a kind of butterfly effect'
