I am a big fan of fantasy and science fiction novels especially if they are long and have several books in the series. I really enjoy a series of books that I can immerse myself in and I first picked up an Elizabeth Moon novel because it was long and part of a multi-novel series. I continue to read her books because I find them engrossing and highly enjoyable. ( )

very domestic. The woman gets some alone time and she chooses chores and craft projects.
-------------

I loved the beginning. And I can totally relate to her choice. F'n brave! I even bought a copy immediately after starting (was reading a library copy). Surprise bonus - It's autographed, love that!

@25% It's very domestic. The MC gets some alone time and she chooses chores and craft projects. I find her choice of what to do interesting to dwell on. I try to picture what I would do with all that "free time". I'm not "crafty" or outdoor "gardeny" nor do I enjoy cooking. And what if I decided to spend a lot of time reading, and I end up like that man on the Twilight Zone??!!? I haven't decided yet what I would want to do.

The last bit of the book cruised. Could be because I'm not reading about maintenance anymore but it's likely because I'm alone in the house today.

I do wish that I didn't have the edition with the "aliens" on the cover. That isn't how they are described in the book nor did they get our MC's outfit right. Not outlandish enough. She should of been depicted in what she @85% greeted the landing party in

When I think about the last bits with the human landing crew's BS work ethics and the fact that the aliens are super smart but didn't advance more than that I find it hard to fully accept.

And Ofelia wanted something and I was routing for that personally but she didn't get it, she got something different. She could of had just about the same exact same thing she got, with humans. I know no one forced it on her like the aliens but all the stuff she was sick of "being" she became again. What made being "auntie" with the aliens so much better than than with humans? Because she was needed? Because they didn't have any aunties left? That is what it took? They respected their elders unlike humans? More so, unlike her family. In my family the "elders" are still taking care of grandkids and hosting family gatherings. We still flock to them. But it has to be something in them that pulls us to them, we don't force it on them. Their desire or ability for it, which Ofelia didn't seem to have.


Reminds me of my feeling with [book:Skipping Christmas|521019] I was hoping it would support and insult the craziness some of us succumb to at Christmas but instead it showed the necessity of it all. So as with Ofelia I thought I/we would see someone living for themselves, wild but instead we saw someone become a respected member of a large group which is completely opposite of what I thought I was getting into.

And I'm selling my copy. I do hate clutter and can't imagine I'd ever read it again.

This books was surprisingly interesting to me. I didn't know what to expect, and it held my attention. It is quite unlike the space opera books by Elizabeth Moon that I have read (the Vatta's war series). It feels like much more mature writing, with deeper issues and more character. I found the main character very intriguing--an old woman who wants to be left alone--and then her encounter, alone, with what is on the planet grew even more interesting. It's not obvious at first, but by the end of the book you realize there are strong moral issues at stake. ( )

DNFing this - disliked the protagonist from the start and my TBR is already so full. Probably great, just not for me right now.

Always something to overcome the body's momentary collapse, if you only gave it a chance. A color, a scent, a scrap of music. (p. 194)
What they [instructors] cared about, all they really cared about, was that she learned to do what she was told and not make messes...had not cared whether she understood the machines she was taught to tend and repair. Follow the instructions...It's no harder than making a dress from a pattern, one of them told her. Even homemakers like you can do that. She had clenched herself around the pain of his scorn and proved that she could... (p.160)
The joy of creation, of play, had been the empty place unfilled by family and social duties. She would have loved her children better, she thought now, if she had realized how much she herself needed to play, to follow her own childish desire to handle beautiful things and make more beauty. (p 100)
It was the old guilt, which insisted that she be responsible for everything, that things must be conserved in case of later need. (p.101)
