Synopsis: In this unforgettable conclusion to Nancy Kress' groundbreaking trilogy which began with the Nebula Award-winning Beggars in Spain, it is now two hundred years in the future. Regular human beings hate and fear the Sleepless and the SuperSleepless, genetically modified humans who are immune to disease and hunger and do not need to sleep. When the Sleepless plot to take over the world and leave regular humans powerless, civilization and the very meaning of the word "human" hang in the balance.
Review: Nancy Kress ends her Beggars trilogy (which began with the novella later turned into a novel, Beggars in Spain) almost full circle from where it began. Against a backdrop where rich humans have themselves modified to perfection and poor, unmodified "Livers" eke out a nomadic existence, the genetically superior Sleepless have stopped distributing Change. Change is the miracle substance that prevents disease in all humans. In cutting off Change, the Sleepless have ignited a class war that will ultimately be resolved not by technology and science, but by the children of technology, who must live side-by-side despite their differences.
