    Grass eBook Ü Paperback grass book, Grass PDF 'tis the season13 TALES OF TERROR BOOK 4once upon a time there was a delightful young story named Grass by Sheri S Tepper this story seemed to know exactly what i was longing for Horror in Space and so she provided it to me a fascinating planet full of strange multi colored grass bizarre fauna the ruins of an alien civilization a backdrop based around a particularly esoteric and semi totalitarian theocracy an expertly portrayed and atypical heroine who felt alive and real and who rather reminded me of Deborah Kerr in her various classy role

    Grass eBook Ü Paperback grass book, Grass PDFGrass Millions of square miles of it a hundred rippling oceans each ripple a gleam of scarlet or amber emerald or turquoise the colors shivering over the prairies Sapphire seas of grass with dark islands of grass bearing great plumy trees which are grass againSo opens Grass Sheri Tepper's first fully successful novel and her masterwork I think Listed as one of my 25 Best Ever SF booksIf you've read any Tepper you'll have noticed that she takes a pretty dim view of human nature especially among men and of religion especially patriarchal religion The standard Tepper themes are here of course they weren't standard back then but handled lightly and thoughtfully with only a bit of the didactic ham fistedness that mars some of her later books What I didn't remember about Grass is the splendid sense of place she evokes Grass emerges as a fully formed beautiful and thoroughly alien world The formative image of Grass to the Colorado

    Grass eBook Ü Paperback grass book, Grass PDFI've no idea how this makes lists such as most underrated sci fi or how it's in Gollancz's SF Masterworks range despite one or two interesting ideas it is on balance absolute drivelThe pacing is terrible The science is woeful The characters are tedious and one dimensional and their dialogue wholly convincing However much worse than that the entire novel turns out to be some vehicle for the author to explore some uninspired hokum about Catholicism guilt original sin etc and horse riding fox huntingAny opportunity to discuss colonisation of alien worlds first contact with an alien race the differing philosophical outlook of that race telepathic control sexual submission genocide or indeed any of the potentially interesting themes that emerge in this book all ultimately become discussions about Catholicism andor horse riding Even the eponymous grass that comprises the ali

    Grass eBook Ü Paperback grass book, Grass PDFThere’s a lot of things going on in Grass Religion tradition health illness education relationships—all these things get batted around during the course of the book and that’s a big load for just 500 pages but not unusual in a planetary romance of this sort However I liked the main character Marjorie Westriding with her love of her horses her ability to ask the right questions of the right people and the willingness to put herself in dangerAs in her b

    Grass eBook Ü Paperback grass book, Grass PDFOne of my favorite science fiction books in recent years this intricately plotted book creates a complete world and is utterly absorbing Tepper reminds me a bit of another favorite woman sci fi author CJ Cherryh in that she takes a somewhat anthropological approach to the alien societies she creates I won't go into details of the plot it's one of those complex sagas that doesn't summarize too well but I will mention that I enjoy her style which is lyrical and lush much like the planet described in this novel

    Grass eBook Ü Paperback grass book, Grass PDFI read Grass within a couple of years after I read The Gate to Women's Country It is once again a science fiction novel with a great mystery guiding the action This book is highly reviewed than any of Tepper's other books It is intriguing and it is one of the books that I like to read of Tepper's because it challenges me It forces me to ask what I believe about humankind Are we inherently good and trustworthy as I've believed in the past? Or are we inherently evilat least some of us And if some of us are evil what must we do about evil people?Grass takes this a step farther What if the evil ones become saints? What if their evil is so evil it must be destroyed except that what they accomplish as saints is terribly wonderful and beautifulI think I tolerate these questions not only because I majored in philosophy but also because Tep

    Grass eBook Ü Paperback grass book, Grass PDFUnreliable narration is kind of trendy these days It's not the easiest thing to do well and often enough I've seen people kind of dismissively wave it away as a cop out And it very much can be a cop out Which is why it's really refreshing to see it used well and I really enjoyed the way this book kept catching me off guard again and again Grass is an old fashioned science fiction book in the best sense It's set on an ecologically interesting world with a fairly small human colony There's a number of interesting concepts explored and a satisfying

    Grass eBook Ü Paperback grass book, Grass PDFSheri Tepper has never been my favourite science fiction writer I've only read two of her books and while I thought The Gate to Women's Country was interesting feminist dystopiautopia I really disliked The Fresco I thought the solutions in that one were very deus ex machina although the bit about impregnating right to life male senators with alien babies was very amusing and that if you need to have unbiased aliens to come fix all your problems and they'll do it perfectly and be perfectly understanding you've just reintroduced the idea of God in alien clothesNote The rest of this review has been withdrawn due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enforcement You can read why I came to this decision hereIn the meantime you can read the entire review at Smorgasbook
