The Stone Gods

by Jeanette Winterson

At the heart of this tale is a bizarre but beautifully written romance with a twist. Against a backdrop of dystopian worlds, Billie and Spike search, time after time, for a life and love together. Packed around that romance is a science fiction novel, full of eco-warnings, philosophising, and a touch of satire. As the revelations slowly unfolded, this novel enticed and drew me through its satisfyingly complex and unexpected story.


Every second the Universe divides into possibilities and most of those possibilities never happen. It is not a universe - there is more than one reading. The story won't stop, can't stop, it goes on telling itself, waiting for an intervention that changes what will happen next.
Love is an intervention.
