Themes run deep, like water. Sharing of such water might just bring us close enough.
The voice actor was good, and I enjoyed listening to him and the individual voicework for each character. This greatly enhanced the telling of the story.
my sister recommended this book for me it took me a little while to get into it but once I got into it I was lost in the book and before I knew it the book was over I'll recommend this book to everyone
The first half of the book is really good! I was on track to understanding why people considered this book a classic. And then, rather suddenly, the author resolves every plot in the middle of the book.
Then for rest of the book the main characters just seem to talk amongst each other with no clear plot or direction.
it's almost as if the first half of the book and the second half were written by two completely different people.
Trust me , don't waste your time on this. It has all the ingredients to be a great sci Fi novel but the author fails at bringing anything together.
I've never thought of myself as being into sci-fi but I think I may be sucked in after this. glorious dialogue in a unique setting, steep with philosophical ideas. beautiful writing and character development.
A strong Like..
Even better than thou art god..
Somewhat as good as ever ..
Parallels the passion of Christ, with interplanetary signification ..
this amazing book takes you through the life of a human raised among an alien race. by the end of the book you'll question your own moral values and want to grok with the universe
I have no idea how this became a famous book. It is extremely fifties and offensive regarding how the women are spoken to. None of the woman think for themselves, take independent actions or take any actions that affect the story. Also, there is virtually no plot. It was mostly boring, more hippie fantasy than science fiction, and the purpose of the book doesn't seem to be to entertain but to prosletize polygamy. Blown away at how bad the writing was for such a recommended book. It had a kind of interesting begining, a kind of interesting end, with a very boring and mildly offensive middle. Save your money.
