In this final installment of Nancy Kresss awardwinning Beggars trilogy, it is now two hundred years in the future. Regular human beings hate and fear the Sleepless and the SuperSleepless, geneticallymodified humans who are immune to disease and hunger and who 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.
a sci fi book i borrowed from my friend. it's the last in a trilogy i did not read, but i was able to understand the jist of it. this is a future i actually could imagine, with those beautiful, drugged people being the ruling class. i found all of the characters very interesting, although the main guy was kinda dislikeable because he acted so weak half the time. very good book, you should read it.
