Occupy Me is a dazzling intellectual tour de force science fiction novel which keeps you reading , even when (as I often was ) you are not entirely sure what is going. So what it’s about? Well, there is a suitcase which is not really a suitcase; an organisation called the Resistance which may or may not exist ; a stewardess called Pearl who is not really a stewardess, nor is her name really Pearl; a doctor from Nigeria called Kisi Sorle who is sometimes himself and sometimes someone else; a millionaire about to die called Austen Stevens; a pterosaur, a Quetxcoatlus ; a double fridge; some eggs, a giant frog (dead); two big dogs (alive), and a vet called Alison who is indeed called Alison and is indeed a vet. The action takes place in the USA, on an airplane, in mid-air, in Edinburgh, in Paris, in Scandinavia, in a scrapyard, in a Cretaceous era rainforest and in a library, to name a few. To know the rest you will simply have to read it. Highly recommended and I am look forward to reading her other novels.
