"I told you, I've made my choice. If you think you have some damn right to
give me an alternative like the alternative you gave me, I think I have a right
to pick which course I accept. I'll take the desert, and you can take
Limbo PD and shove it right up your electronic valves."
In this two volume book written by Tanith Lee, a young girl living in a
world focused on pleasure must come to terms with her beliefs and
those of the estranged Quasi Robots that rule their world.
The two volumes Don't Bite the Sun and Drinking Sapphire
Wine, were originally written as duet novels, but may be found in a
single book titled Biting the Sun.
This hedonistic paradise seems so perfect, with pills for every
emotion and the ability to design how beautiful or how ugly you look. Is
there nothing one cannot do in the cities of the Fours? The young heroine
may discover all too quickly that, of all the things that are limitless...
should never bite the sun.
