8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Karen Haber on November 22, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This is a science fiction novel of gender confusions across worlds, a fact that goes unmentioned in the above book description. You neglect to observe the main plot point of CROSSING INFINITY: that the alien refugee, Corylanus, is able to shift gender, and does so under extreme emotional pressure, from male to female, and back again. This book explores notions of gender identity -- and through that exploration underscores the beauty of unconditional love.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ralph Benko on February 4, 2006
Format: Hardcover
What can you say about a book that transcends multiple genres to tell a story with both profound sweetness while really pushing the edge -- multiple edges in fact?

Karen Haber, who is known as the First Lady of Science Fiction and a good friend to many, myself included, has the rare ability to say something so true and so well that she changes the very way you see the world -- or worlds.

"Cory liked the cats for their silken grace, immense vanity, and playful carnivorous impulses. What charming quirk of nature had made these elegant little killing machines?"

Adults as well as the right kind of kid should buy this and read this for an experience of kind and honest bravery in facing a strange, sometimes hostile, sometimes indecipherable world for a really delicious reading experience, an experience you simply won't be able to find anywhere else. Bravo!

By Mark Tier on February 14, 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is a beautifully constructed story. I was quite surprised how much I enjoyed it: rather than the regular science fiction novel I anticipated I was absorbed in one that might fit better in the "young adult romance" category. Just the same, I had to stay up way past my bedtime to finish it.

As a writer, I'm jealous of Karen Haber's sparing use of words and scenes. Only an inspired editor could find anything to cut. The characters' reactions are short, sharp, and almost always emotional rather than physical (i.e., violent).

This is the first Haber novel I've read; it won't be the last!!
