I loved this feminist-driven volume!
Imagine a woman being rude, or fat, or insubordinate. During this future time period, women must be perfect at all times and if not, off to the Bitch Planet they go.
I liked this more than I thought I would, partially because of the cool retro feel to it, (complete with fake Xray glasses ads and things like that). I'm going to continue with this series.
Wasn't expecting to like this one, but I did. It was a bit episodic, but a pretty complex woven-together plotline. Not as didactic and trippy-for-the-sake-of-trippiness as A Wind in the Door.
In fact, the story was so compelling, I found the Murry family and the present-day conflict to be the weakest part of the story. The layered past/genealogy/archetype thing was cool.
Also: I love me some 'corns.
I liked this world-building, the differenct fractions and the ancient history of the desolate ship in the sky.
The romance part was ok too, but to be honest the SciFi Alien part was much better.
The Aliens were really foreign, the author did a quite good job in inventing a very different society.
More of a Rocannon flavor than The Dispossessed, in that it's more of a gorgeous and bittersweet cross between sci-fy, fantasy and adventure than hypothetical worlds heavy in social commentary (not to say any asides are completely absent).
Which in checking makes sense, since Rocannon is the first on the saga, and this the second.
I maintain Left Hand as my favorite (it strikes that perfect balance for me), but I enjoyed the simple but lovely story a lot. And it has another perfectly awesome introduction.
