puts on literature grad student hat I found this book poorly written, especially in the beginning. It’s books like this that make English teachers forbid their students from using the passive voice!
puts on activism hat Standard complaint about old sci-fi sexism, along with fat shaming and equating homosexuality with pedophilia. Errrghh.
Okay, with that out of the way, I mostly agree with Rym and Scott. I can see why it’s popular. There’s some interesting world building,but most of the characters are just there to move the plot along. It had some moments I liked, others I didn’t. I have no desire to read the others, even if they weren’t bad, but I was curious enough to look a couple things up on Wikipedia.
shrug The Fifth Season is way better. I hope y’all like it.
