    The Sharers of Shora are a nation of women on a distant moon in the far future. They are pacifists, they are highly advanced in biological sciences, and they reproduce by parthenogenesis - because there are no males. Conflict erupts when a militaristic neighboring civilization decides to develop their ocean world and sends in an army.

    Jim "The Impatient" says: "Only Lesser Races produce Males"
    "Hard to listen"
    Overall

    Premise: English is not my mother language. Normally I much enjoy audio-books and quality of audible, but in this case, I find very difficult to listen to the story, I do not find suspence and the will to listen it further. When I am driving, I have to switch off, since the story has a dangerous sleeping effect. The book may be wonderful but personally I will not listen the audio-book until the end (4-5 hours are more than enough to show good will :-) ).
