A review of Sheri S. Tepper’s 2007 SF/F novel The Margarets

Kerry Glover of the Australian website The Science Fact & Science Fiction Concatenation wrote an interesting review of Sheri S. Tepper’s 2007 novel The Margarets, a science fiction/ fantasy hybrid in which the only child of a human colony on Phobos working on a doomed project to transform Mars into a garden planet invents her own imaginary companions. Glover concludes, in part, “It is a highly readable book, yet it often felt unsatisfactory. It is difficult to place The Margarets; its balance of SF and fantasy is pleasing and rarely jars and the story is involving, but often drags and seems to lack direction.”
